Users accused the NFT game Pixelmon of scamming
The Pixelmon game community invested $70 million in the game, getting NFTs for it, which turned out to be far worse in quality than they were promised. Now, the community is accusing management of scamming.
According to the official Twitter account, the Pixelmon project held a delayed release of the NFT collection on February 7. It was held in the form of an auction, where bidders competed with each other for the purchase of each lot. The starting price was 3 ETH (about $7880). The OpenSea Marketplace raised a total of about $70 million during the event.
Because of the delayed release, participants did not receive NFTs until February 25. Once they received their models, investors started to resent the poor quality of the images, while the advertising campaign showed a higher quality of the images:
This is what the NFTs of the participants look like.
The founder of the project said that the designers would improve the quality of the images in the future: the release of the alpha version is scheduled only for the third quarter of 2022, so they still have time to fix the graphics.
