Sorry, to disappoint. I guess we won't be able to agree on that.
I'm just not seeing how someone can "have" one (or more) of the pixel dudes in any meaningful ways. You're interested, so obviously you're aware of all the ethical questions about NFTs; no point to argue about that one.
I just don't believe any of the people who've recently offered me to build a generator of pixel characters for them (such an amazing opportunity! /s) is interested in the crafts and arts of procedural generation rather then of chasing magic green paper without providing anything of value. This is just one of the instances of the insanity of the capitalist society, to be fair - not the worst of them.
On the personal note - I'm just annoyed to be associated with something I consider ethically suspicious at best.
