The pair have been trading accusations and insults on social media and YouTube since December 17, when Coffeezilla released the first of a three-part video series critical of CryptoZoo and Paul, who was the face of the project. In his most recent response, Paul published a video on January 4 where he accused Coffeezilla of "monetizing a narrative" that Paul is "a fraud or I tried to scam my audience" without verifying any evidence or background information. Paul also said he would "see you in court."
CryptoZoo is an NFT game that allows players, or "ZooKeepers," to buy NFT eggs using the game's native token, ZOO. The eggs can then be hatched into animals that can be bred to create hybrid animals, which are intended to be tradeable and provide ZooKeepers with ZOO. Paul had previously described the project as "a really fun game that makes you money." However, the CryptoZoo blog has yet to publish any new content since April 20, leading some to believe that the project's development has stalled.
During Coffeezilla's three-part series on CryptoZoo, the YouTuber interviewed investors in the project, one of whom called on the CryptoZoo team to "reimburse those loyal fans they have or try to rebuild the project." However, in his latest video, Paul said that the team would "continue to build CryptoZoo," and shared a teaser stating that the game would be released in 2023/2024. "Trust me, CryptoZoo is coming. I will make damn sure of it," Paul said. Coffeezilla has continued to question the authenticity of these claims on Twitter.
The Battle Between Logan Paul and Coffeezilla
The feud between Logan Paul and Coffeezilla began on December 17, when Coffeezilla released the first three-part video series critical of CryptoZoo and Paul. In the video, Coffeezilla accused the CryptoZoo project of being a "scam" and claimed that millions of dollars of investor money had been spent on a game that was "still broken." Coffeezilla also alleged that the art for the game was not "handmade" by ten different artists over six months, as Paul had claimed, but was instead "a bunch of stock photos from Adobe that have been poorly photoshopped."
Paul responded to these allegations with a video published on January 4, where he accused Coffeezilla of "monetizing a narrative" that Paul is "a fraud or I tried to scam my audience," without verifying any evidence or background information. Paul also accused Coffeezilla of breaking laws by publishing defamation without substantiating it and said he would "see you in court."
Both Paul and Coffeezilla have called on each other to discuss the matter on their respective platforms, but they have yet to accept any of the invitations.
