Scams in the cryptocurrency and NFT space aren’t uncommon. The latest addition to NFT scam list is ‘allegedly’ the popular YouTuber- turned Professional Boxer Logan Paul.
Logan Paul is fascinated by NFTs and launched his NFT project by the name of CryptoZoo on 1st September 2021.
What Is CryptoZoo?
For those of you who don’t know what the NFT project is, CryptoZoo is an autonomous ecosystem where owners breed, collect, and trade hybrid animals via NFTs.
Fans are going bonkers over the NFT digital ‘specifically designed arts’ that Logan Paul’s CryptoZoo is offering. So where’s the problem?
What Is The Scam?
Well, according to Coffeezilla, an internet detective who exposes scams says that Logan Paul is using Adobe Stock images and photoshopping them for his CryptoZoo NFTs.
However, Logan Paul’s team says that the NFTs are ‘specifically designed’ without the help of any existing assets.
Internet detective Coffeezilla shares examples of Adobe Stock images that Logan’s CryptoZoo has used and photoshopped to offer ‘scam’ NFTS. Have a look at his Tweet where shared few of the photoshopped NFT arts:

‘Don’t Support This Clown Project’
“DON’T SUPPORT THIS CLOWN PROJECT. 🤡🤡My guy is literally ripping off stock photos and their “admin” Ben Roth is lying about it in the telegram.”
In addition to the first example, which shows a stock image of a panda alongside its CryptoZoo variant, Coffeezilla also shared some other photoshopped NFTs of CryptoZoo including one of a penguin and another of a lion, and the resemblance is evident.
All of this has not slowed down the rise of CryptoZoo as the project continues to rank among the top 10 in volume on OpenSea, an NFT marketplace.
Do you think that Logan Paul’s CryptoZoo NFT project is using photoshopped images from Adobe Stock or are they genuinely rooting for the advancement of NFT space by providing specifically designed digital arts?
