Pinned toot

Looked at Twitter seriously for the first time in over a month and was quickly reminded how all that site seems to do any more is make me mad. So I decided on a late New Year's resolution.

Not sure if people stopped saying YOLO or if everyone who said it died.

The U.S. should have 53 states because it's a prime number and can't be
divided. Then we would truly be one nation, indivisible.

So I'd never stopped to consider that if a chain splits, any NFTs on that chain will exist in duplicate on the resulting forks.

So which one becomes the 'true/original NFT'? The one on the chain that wins the name (eg ETH vs ETC)? The one that ends up with more economic value? Does the minter get to decide?

I suppose that both copies would exist and hold some amount of value (whatever value an NFT holds, at least). No clear social consensus here, maybe just a case-by-case basis.
