GameStop’s NFT Marketplace has removed a picture referencing 9/11 attack


“Falling Man,” a video on Web3 that shows one of the most famous photos of a man falling to his death in New York on September 11, taken by Associated Press reporter Richard Drew, is getting a lot of views on NFT.

About 100 of the 2,753 people who died that day at the World Trade Center and in the area around it jumped while the buildings were still standing.

According to the NFT’s website, “it probably fell from the MIR station,” which seems to be a reference to the Russian space station that stopped working in 2001.

But there are a few similarities between the NFT’s background and the picture Drew got.

The artist, Jules, had two copies of “Falling Man” for sale on Coinbase. The lowest price was 0.65 Ethereum, which is about $1,041.

Web3 says that GameStop looks at every NFT creator.

GameStop didn’t answer right away when an insider asked for a comment.

NFTs are a type of digital asset that shows ownership of physical things like art, music, videos, etc. You could think of NFTs as the collectibles of today. They can be bought and sold online, and they serve as digital proof of ownership for a certain item.

Insider recently reported that NFTs are stored safely on a blockchain, which is the same technology that makes cryptocurrencies work. This makes sure that each asset is unique. It is also possible that the technology will make it impossible to replace or fake NFTs.

Reuters says that under US copyright law, the original work should be able to be turned into NFTs.

Drew took the picture of the “falling guy,” and he also took the picture of Robert F. Kennedy being shot.
