Investigative YouTube journalist Coffeezilla accused Youtuber/Boxer Logan Paul of engaging in fraudulent activities with his NFT project, “Crypto Zoo.”
The video “Investigating Logan Paul’s Biggest Scam” by another YouTuber, Coffeezilla caused quite a stir in the cryptocurrency community as Coffeezilla exposed the play-2-earn gaming scam.
The investigative journalist said that Logan Paul’s team just stole the code from FlokiShibX and passed it off as their own unique game, rather than investing $1 million in creating it. Coffeezilla noted how investors lost millions in the scam and said, “People were buying advertisements and promises. Following that, Coffeezilla published two additional movies describing the breadth of Logan Paul’s “scams.”
Logan Paul responded to Coffeezilla’s claims on Wednesday by producing a video titled “My Response To Coffeezilla’s Scam Allegations.” Logan refuted every accusation, claiming that Crypto Zoo was created by a group of con artists and criminals that he “unknowingly” employed.
He clarified what Coffeezilla had said after talking with developer “Z” (an engineer who worked on CryptoZoo). The boxer disclosed that “Z” is actually Zack Kelling, who was previously detained for engaging in fraudulent behavior. Logan clarified that, contrary to Z’s assertion in the Coffeezilla video, the CryptoZoo team only comprised three engineers.
Logan admitted that Coffeezilla did not fact-check “Z” on purpose in order to forward his fake narrative. In addition, he claimed that Coffeezilla releases his investigative films with shrouded judgment due to his “addiction to clicks.” Logan remarked, “He is a skewed journalist with an agenda,” and added, “You have used my name for views and money.”
