I don't think that anyone serious is asking Mastodon to creating NFTs.
What it is being asked of the devs is to separate the technology from the common applications.
NFTs are more than just overpriced JPEGs being sold by scammers, they already work really well to have permissionless domain names and Decentralized Identifiers.
It would be a great weapon against censorship and it could solve the identity portability problem.
@raphael @Mastodon seizures and takedowns are ugly but necessary. a lot of bad actors out there:
Also, bear in mind that pirate bay still exists, despite all of the forced domain changes. Trying to curb them by censorship does not work. It is as "necessary" as it is ineffective.
Say you start having some instances with ENS domains getting popular. Will Mastodon push to block these instances on the grounds of "crypto is bad and we will not federate with them?"
