The Mekaverse Scam Controversy
Along with the huge success that Mekaverse has just experience, there has been lots of rumors spreading around the NFT community that the Mekaverse NFT project is a scam. This has slightly affected the reputation of the Metaverse, however, fortunately it has been solved.
A while back I did these illustrations for @MekaVerse. It was my understanding that I would compensated with some ETH and 1 Meka. It was already tough enough having to pester them for my payment, but they have since completely ghosted me when I asked how was I to obtain my Meka. pic.twitter.com/Lp6uMZEzbO— Emerson Tung (@emersontung) October 7, 2021
As many have alleged that the project is a “rug pull”, citing claimed red flags like an unverified Ethereum contract as said in Decrypt.com. The Mekaverse team resolved the issue and announced that the contract has been verified (as seen on Etherscan) and the funds has been transferred out of the contract into a private wallet. While the team also announced that they have minimized social media interactions for the sake of mental health.
