If there’s an NFT influencer that stands out from the (Twitter) crowd, it’s Beanie. After going into tirades with many notable NFT collectors via Twitter, Beanie attacked Zeneca too – but this might be the final battle.
Beanie vs. Zeneca: a brand new NFT Twitter battle
Beanie is undoubtedly one of the most-followed NFT collectors on social media. The influencer, who is a self-proclaimed art critic, has surpassed 123,000 followers on Twitter. Of course, many of them are following his advice in terms of NFT trading.
Unlike other NFT influencers, though, Beanie is also known for constantly getting into arguments with other notable crypto collectors. This time, though, fellow influencer Zeneca exposed him lying about their feud.
On November 2nd, Beanie tweeted about Zeneca’s private Discord channel, where he’s offering in-depth NFT consultations. In order to join the channel, users must pay a 3.33 ETH fee. According to the tweet, Beanie thought the fee was outrageous for “a guy that’s been in the NFT space only a few months.”
Then, the chaos began: Beanie posted a tweet claiming that Zeneca had blocked him right after his Discord channel comment. However, Zeneca quickly reacted to clarify the situation, writing that Beanie was ‘blatantly lying.’ Here’s his tweet:
Zeneca concluded that the entire crypto space must support honest collectors, instead of those who always cause a stir:
“At the end of the day, if you care about the honesty and integrity of our space, we need to encourage people who tell the truth,” he wrote. In addition, Zeneca thinks we should “avoid encouraging people who crop screenshots to post provocative tweets and then outright lie to people.”
The war of a declining market
This isn’t the first time Beanie is reacting strangely when it comes to other NFT collectors. Back in August, the influencer also threw tirades against Pranksy, the OG NFT collector and owner of NFTBoxes.io.
Clearly, all of these feuds are affecting NFT sales to some extent. After all, Pranksy has over 177,000 Twitter followers, while Zeneca boasts 111,000 followers. Whether they’re newbies to the NFT craze or experienced traders, many of these users are guided by these influencers’ tweets.
Beanie’s “childish” behavior (as Zeneca calls it) comes during a difficult time, as the NFT market starts declining. In fact, NFT sales are down by 75% compared to August – a shocking statistic considering the growing interest in non-fungible tokens.
