NFT Psycho supporters Turning Players Into NPCs From ‘Developing’ Countries


The blatant inhumanity of everything about blockchain and AI is a recurring theme in my utter disgust for both. It sometimes seems as though followers of these techbro causes have entirely lost touch with the human experience because they are so preoccupied with technology, profits, and market forces while staying ignorant of its repercussions and consequences.

However, today I wanted to call your attention to one of the most astonishing things I have ever seen committed to paper in the name of future technology. We have discussed this to death over the past couple of years, from unsuccessful NFT attempts to the looming specter of AI-generated art.

Neirin Gray Desai wrote a great piece about NFT and crypto gaming, which focused mostly on Minecraft servers and Axie Infinity (womp). You should read the whole thing on Rest of World for a great, but also very depressing, look at the markets for “play to earn” games.

But one part really stands out:
Mikhai Kossar, a chartered accountant and member of Wolves DAO, a group that helps NFT gaming projects in the early stages of their development, told Rest of World that some players will always go where they can make more money.
“You have people that have money, but don’t have the time to play the game, and on the other hand, you have people that don’t have money but have time,” he said.

He thinks, though, that in the future, guild ownership and management could change the way that rich Western players manage those from poor countries.“Filipinos could band together to buy some assets and then rent them out to themselves and make money that way,” he said.

But he also thinks that NFT games could use the difference in wealth between players to offer a different kind of experience. “With the cheap labor of a developing country, you could use people in the Philippines as NPCs (“non-playable characters”), real-life NPCs in your game,” said Kossar. They could “just populate the world, maybe do a random job or just walk back and forth, fishing, telling stories, a shopkeeper, anything is really possible.”
