Cryptocurrency is, according to Wikipedia, "a digital currency designed to work as a medium of exchange through a computer network that is not reliant on any central authority, such as a government or bank, to uphold or maintain it."
A Non Fungible Token (NFT) is "a unique digital identifier that cannot be copied, substituted, or subdivided, that is recorded in a blockchain, and that is used to certify authenticity and ownership."
Cryptocurrency has existed since 2009 and NFTs have existed since 2014. Milk's been flowing out of both for as long as they've been around. Both are intertwined because both use the "block-chain" distributed ledger technology (DLT) designed by the person/people who made Bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies like Ethereum are the only currencies NFTs can be bought and sold with.

Apologizes for shit thread. Seeing all this potential milk under the smaller-in-scale Caroline Ellison thread seemed shameful.
Not OP but I'll definitely join in when I see some milk, whenever there's ups and downs there's cringey scrotes crying. There's also crazy stories like that guy that made 2 billion on bitcoin, then hired people to dig tunnels under his house because he was a doomer and wanted a private nuclear bunker, a young man doing that died because of his negligence and the dude only got 3 years in prison.
There's also this

NFT project that was started by former kaliacc members that made them splinter even harder
