Nassim Taleb: Nft Market Will Burst On The Back Of The Fed’s Interest Rate Hike

Philosopher and author of the cult work “The Black Swan” Nassim Taleb said that the market for non-fungible tokens will burst amid tightening Fed monetary policy.

“NFT is starting to burst. All it takes to make meaningless things meaningless is higher interest rates,” Taleb wrote.

He also pointed to the fact that the NFT of Jack Dorsey’s first tweet, who in March 2021 Bridge Oracle founder Sina Estavi bought for $2.91 million, began to lose its value.

In April 2022 Estavi placed the token on the OpenSea platform. He intended to sell it for 14,969 ETH (~$48.3 million at the exchange rate at that time), but to no avail. The auction ended April 13th. The maximum bet per NFT is 10 ETH ($30,399).

In response to Taleb’s statement, blogger Matin Soudagar emphasized that these conclusions are “based on headlines” and are not backed up by real facts.

“The fundamental problem with headline-based inference is that you don’t have a perspective on the history of NFTs. [Сектор] has been around since 2014, flourished during the bear market (2018-2020), flourished during the pandemic, flourished during industry turbulence. This is more than Jack’s tweet,” Soudagar wrote.

Formerly Taleb criticized bitcoin and called it “the perfect game for losers” in a low interest rate environment.

Recall that the head of Amazon Andy Jesse admitted the possibility of selling NFTs on the corporate platform in the future.
