Azuki Drama Continues

  • More about the drama: Zagabond.eth, founder of Azuki, tweeted a controversial article, titled ‘A Builder’s Journey’, where he clarified that he’d founded 3 projects (CryptoPhunks, CryptoZunks, Tendies) prior to Azuki, as well as self-analysis of what he learned from each of these projects. Soon after the release of his article, CT users started unveiling more information about his previous projects — some of the things they pointed out included Beanz metadata having been leaked prior to release, or that the CryptoPhunks royalty fee had suspiciously been boosted to 5% on Looksrare prior to a wash trade that netted 300 ether. or that ZAGABOND had been impersonating a woman through the use of the ‘Mandy’ account associated with CryptoZunks. Azuki floor price fell from ~16 ETH to ~7 ETH. Zagabond tried to clear his name on Twitter spaces, which attracted ~14,000 people, and addressed what it meant to rug a project, defending that the project teams delivered on everything they promised.
