‘Piracy’ Website Makes NFT Arts Available as Free Downloads
Geoffrey Huntley, a citizen of Australia, an artist, and programmer, has created a website that purports to give people the freedom to download “every NFT” on the blockchain at once, through a click.
According to Geoffrey Huntley, the creator of the NFT Bay “piracy” website, he wanted to let the purchasers and potential buyers know what they were buying or about to buy. It is important to reiterate that his website is modeled after widespread software piracy and movies. The website works similar to a search engine, such that it makes it easier for users to access art that they might want to search or print but is not owned by them. However, it still acknowledges the ownership of the creator of the arts.

The NFT Bay claims its offers “all NFTs from Ethereum and ,” which are cryptocurrency networks in a substantial single 17 terabyte (TB) file. This contains thousands of digital items and files. However, several criticisms have followed this development; it has been stated that digital items, artwork, etc., can be accessed, downloaded, or copied by virtually anybody.
However, cryptocurrency frontiers have answered the critics by clarifying that the ownership of an NFT carries the rights to brag and clout or fame. They further said there is a difference between right-clicking and saving an image. Thus, NFT Bay’s website can be likened to a showroom for NFT Arts.

Mr. Huntley intends that his website would help the ‘future generations study this generation’s tulip mania.’ This is an allusion to the bloom of tulips in the 17th century amongst Dutch investors.
