Logan Paul has threatened to sue fellow YouTuber and Internet detective Coffeezilla for defamation after Coffeezilla accused Paul’s CryptoZoo nonfungible token (NFT) project of being a scam.
On Dec. 17, Coffeezilla, also known as Stephen Findeisen, launched the first of a three-part video series attacking CryptoZoo and Paul, the project’s face.
CryptoZoo was supposed to be a fun blockchain game that earned money […] but millions of dollars of investor money later, things are still broken,” he said.
Logan Paul released a YouTube video on Jan. 4 accusing the internet detective of “leading the charge to drive and monetize narratives telling millions of people I’m a fraud or I tried to scam my audience.”
Additionally, Coffeezilla has been accused of doing so without verifying any background information or substantiating any evidence, adding that he “took multiple criminals’ words as truth and broke the law, but you still published the defamation.”
“I look forward to seeing you in court.”
This NFT game is designed to allow “ZooKeepers” to purchase NFT eggs using the game’s native token, ZOO. These eggs would then hatch into animals that could be bred to create hybrids.
Paul described the project as a “really fun game that makes money” in an Aug. 21, 2021, podcast.
The art for the game would also be created over a six-month period by 10 different artists.
In a video from Coffeezilla on Sept. 11, 2021, he described the hybrids as “a bunch of Adobe stock photos that have been poorly Photoshopped.”
In his most recent video, Paul stated that they will “continue to build CryptoZoo,” sharing a teaser of its arrival in 2023/2024.
“Trust me, CryptoZoo is coming. I’ll make damn sure of it.”
On Twitter, Coffeezilla has questioned the authenticity of these claims.
Paul and Coffeezilla have both invited one another to discuss the matter on their respective platforms, but neither have accepted.
Zoo tokens have fallen 99.5% over the past year, despite some gains within the last week following recent media attention.
Before launching CryptoZoo, Paul was a major promoter of the crypto token Dink Doink (DINK), which was lambasted by Coffeezilla in a July 12, 2021 video.
