Montana Black NFT lottery scandal: Marcel Ayres fans disappointed
Update from 02/13/2022 at 8:50 am: Montana Black withdraws from the matter. The Twitch Streamer has a tangible NFT scandal on its hands. The 34-year-old first announced an NFT sweepstakes suspect of fraud, and now he’s cleaning up behind it. The statement in which Marcel Ayres admitted that the organizing company “Squiggles” is a fraudulent network has since disappeared from the livestream Twitter channel – a new source for critics of NFT fans.
It is not yet known whether the organizer “Squiggles” contacted MontanaBlack and the streamer has now succumbed to network pressures or whether the Twitch star is simply planning a new, revised statement. The truth is: Even die-hard fans are disappointed and are demanding more transparency and a second scrutiny from Marcel Ayres, Montana Black’s real name. Even OpenSea says about 80% of all NFT projects have fraudulent tendencies on their part.
MontanaBlack falls in love with scammers – NFT lotteries exposed as a scam
First report from February 12, 2022: Buxtehude – MontanaBlack has been under fire for weeks for hosting the NFT sweepstakes regularly on Twitter. Now there was a big scandal, because one of the competitions turned out to be a scam. Apparently the scammers were behind the NFT project and wanted to steal MontanaBlack fans and other influencers. Twitch Streamer has now released a statement on Twitter, but his followers don’t seem reassured.
Which competition is it? MontanaBlack has been promoting NFT projects on Twitter for several weeks. It organizes competitions and distributes so-called whitelist places for NFT projects. This allows winners to get early access to NFTs and get preferential purchases there.
Now there was a competition from MontanaBlack with the “Squiggles” project. There must be some NFTs to buy out there and distribute Monte Whiteelist places for exactly that purpose.
What is the lottery problem? Squiggles NFTs must be published and traded on the OpenSea platform. However, OpenSea removed the entire project from its platform because they suspected a scam behind it. The project leaders are said to have already organized other projects for NFT and after enough buyers jumped in, they shut down their social media channels entirely. So they put the money in their pockets and then disappeared.
What did MontanaBlack say about the scam? Montana Black distanced himself Twitter of the project and insists he knows nothing about it. He also said that the contest winners himself were not whitelisted and therefore could not invest any money. The bottom line is that there is something good about the situation, according to Montana Black.
MontanaBlack has been deep in the NFT business for weeks – a paradise for scammers’ projects
What is behind these NFT projects? Right now, NFT’s business is pretty big, especially on Twitter. More and more influencers are being asked to participate in contests. They should promote the project and attract the attention of as many fans as possible to it, in return many of them will receive information about the best time to sell NFTs again.
The procedure is often similar. There is a lot of publicity for the NFT project. This leads to higher prices as more and more people become interested and join in. At some point, the advertisement will expire and the major supporters will withdraw from the project. As a result, prices drop again and simple buyers are left with expensive NFTs.
MontanaBlack also announced questionable projects several times. So far, Project Squiggles has only been exposed as a scam, but many fans from its community are generally skeptical if there are any known providers behind it.
In the meantime, MontanaBlack is no longer trying to show publicly which NFTs it buys and sells. For this he now has to transfer the full NFTs from his master account to the secondary accounts. However, these buyers can still be tracked. Recently, there has been a scandal surrounding MontanaBlack that includes an NFT swastika.
