After all the buzz with Azuki this morning, Cool Cats NFT project got dragged into the drama as well. If you haven’t heard, the Azuki NFT founder, ZAGABOND.ETH, has just admitted to abandoning 3 failed NFT projects before launching the Azuki NFT collection. Soon enough, a rumor started to circulate that the Cool Cats team was behind ZAGABOND.ETH coming clean about his past projects.
How did Cool Cats NFT get dragged into the Azuki drama?
It all started with a Twitter user named @thelvlsix. According to @thelvlsix, he heard that the Cool Cats NFT team was blackmailing the Azuki NFT team out of vengeance. Later, another Twitter user @0xHustler went on to spread the same rumor across Twitter. With word of it spread like wildfire, many people began to believe that the gossip was true.
Was Cool Cats actually responsible for the rumor?
To be honest, that was a pretty serious allegation against Cool Cats. But the short answer is “no”. As of now, there is no evidence to support that the Cool Cats team is responsible for the Azuki drama.
In addition, what could Cool Cats possibly gain from this? One thing for sure is that Cool Cats is already a successful NFT project in the space. Given that there is no solid evidence to back this up, most probably this is just another rumor to FUD other people’s bags. All things considered, we should just take the Cool Cats rumor with a grain of salt.
