Australian Man Just "Pirated" All NFTs on Ethereum and Solana

A 17.96 terabyte archive containing the screenshots of every single non-fungible token (NFT) minted on top of Ethereum and Solana has appeared on torrent site PirateBay.

Geoffrey Huntley, the software developer from South Australia behind the prank, says that he had to rent a bare-metal server to pull this off, adding that it was "worth it."

Rented a bare metal server at $200/AUD a month to pull this off. Got 4 x 10TB sata disks in RAID0. Worth it.— geoff 👋 🇵🇹 (@GeoffreyHuntley) November 18, 2021

The final boss of "right-clickers" says that the gigantic collection of NFT screenshots is meant for others to study "this generation's tulip mania."

Expectedly, performing the ultimate rick-click save attracted tons of praise from fellow NFT skeptics. Some even praised the user for actually making NFTs decentralized by means of peer-to-peer torrenting.

People who spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on JPEGs are frequently subject to mockery on social media. Last week, as reported by U.Today, someone made a massive mosaic of a right-clicker from 10,000 NFTs.

In spite of heavy criticism, NFTs keep attracting big celebrity endorsements and big money. OpenSea, the leading NFT marketplace, is reportedly worth $10 billion.
