Music Legend Brian Eno on NFTs: ‘Right Now, I Mainly See Hustlers Looking for Suckers’

Legendary musician Brian Eno, known for his contributions to electronic music and collaborations with David Bowie, recently discussed the concept of Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs), expressing his skepticism over them and cryptocurrency in general. Speaking to an interviewer, Eno said: “People I like and trust are convinced they’re the best thing since sliced bread, so I wish I could have a more positive view, but right now, I mainly see hustlers looking for suckers.”

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Art Critic Pans Hunter Biden’s Overpriced Paintings: You Wouldn’t ‘Spend More than $1,000’ on Them

Sebastian Smee, a Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic at the Washington Post, suggested the art world is not wholly impressed by Hunter Biden’s latest venture but said a “few people” are looking to make money “from his notoriety.” He likened the scandal-plagued son to a “cafe painter” whose work would not go for more than $1,000 unless the buyer was “related to the artist.”
