The hype surrounding the Azuki NFT founder’s rug pull issue has not died down. In fact, it led to a feud between some Bored Apes and Azuki NFT holders on Twitter.
Bored Apes x Azuki NFT Holders Start Twitter Feud
It’s only been a day since Azuki NFT founder Zagabond posted his blog post on Twitter about the story of his failed projects. Although the founder’s intention may have been to share his experience as an NFT creator, the NFT community on Twitter saw it differently.
His revelation garnered negative attention. He received accusations of having “shot three times in one year” with CryptoPhunks, Tendies and CryptoZunks. These are projects that Zagabond created and admitted to all being failures.
The problem didn’t end with Zagabond. Now the community has also tried to connect other NFT projects to the controversy. For example, Cool Cats was dragged into the drama Azuki. This happened when Twitter users @thelvlsix and @0xHustler claimed that the Cool Cats NFT team blackmailed Zagabond into confessing his past failures.
Holders of Bored Apes NFT also got involved. While some Azuki NFT holders are defending the story of their NFT founder, they have also leveled accusations against the popular BAYC. Twitter user @robbyhammz, who has an AZUKI NFT as a PFP, said that “It’s kind of funny how monkeys quickly criticize @ZAGABOND but quickly forget how @yugalabs knocked 55,000 ETH off the market. “
Moreover, another Azuki Holder on Twitter with username @0xPhaed said Bored Ape holders create FUD using Zagabond. The post even stated that BAYC had Nazi/Hitler dog whistles in their project. “This too shall pass, and now you have made enemies,” the message read.
