Disney chairman and former CEO Bob Iger sees “extraordinary” possibilities for NFTs, but criticized OpenSea for the levels of copyright infringement in unauthorized NFTs sold in its marketplace.
The former CEO of Disney, Robert (Bob) Iger had an interview with the journalist from the New York Times, Kara Swisher, en el podcast Sway There he talked about the company’s ambitions for the metaverse and also talked about an “explosion” in the non fungible in cryptocurrency, fungibility is when a coin or token can be replaced by any other identical coin or token. token a digital unit designed with utility in mind, providing access and use of a larger crypto economic system. (NFT) space. It is worth noting that about the metaverse, in January it was revealed that. Disney had applied for theme park patents that would work in the virtual world. Although it was also said at the time that these were not immediate plans.
Now, regarding the NFTs, Iger compared them to the baseball cards he collected as a kid.
“We forget, in our generation, that things don’t have to be physical.” , dijo. “ They can be digital digital technologies are these electronic tools that have the ability to generate, store or even process data. and have meaning to people. And as long a situation where you buy a cryptocurrency with the expectation of selling it at a higher price for profit later. as that meaning can essentially be corroborated on a blockchain, I think you’ll see an explosion of things being created, exchanged and collected on NFT.”
Already in NFT non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are cryptocurrencies that do not possess the property of fungibility.
Iger noted that Disney has already been immersed in the NFT space, and noted that the company “has granted some licenses” of your intellectual property as NFT; the company has partnered with digital collectibles platform Veve to launch NFT with popular characters from Disney y Marvel.
“When you think about all the copyrights and trademarks, the characters that Disney has and the possibilities for NFT, it’s extraordinary.” Dijo Iger.
In connection with the Company’s copyrights and intellectual property rights Disney Iger makes a serious complaint about the platform. OpenSea:
“I went on a platform a place to buy, sell and store cryptocurrency called OpenSea, which is a platform to buy and trade NFTs non-fungible token, a unique non-interchangeable piece of digital content that is stored on a distributed ledger (blockchain). and I was amazed at all the Disney stuff on there, and most of it was pirated. Most of it wasn’t created by people who had the right to create them. “.
Disney and the metaverse
As we said Iger also talked about the ambitions of the company Disne and in the space of the metaverse, while warning against the risks of the “toxic behavior” on the next generation Internet.
“Enough has been said and criticized about toxic behavior on Internet 2.0 – Twitter, Facebook, you name it.” Iger said, arguing that in the most “compelling and immersive” of the metaverse, worse kinds of toxic behavior could occur.
“I think something Disney will have to consider as they talk about creating a metaverse a metaverse is a digital universe that contains all the aspects of the real world, such as real-time interactions and economies. It offers a unique experience to end-users. for themselves is to moderate and monitor behavior.
He further indicated that he was thinking about telling his children “who must begin to create technological tools to moderate behaviour on Internet 3.0”.
Despite his concerns about the risks posed by the metaverse, Iger was optimistic about its possibilities, arguing that the next generation of Internet “it will definitely be more engaging in experience, certainly more immersive, more dimensional.”
“I don’t think there is a metaverse. I’m talking about democratization. It will disperse. You might have an avatar, but you’ll go all over the place. And I think it’s likely to become real as an experience.”
