The Founder of Azuki NFT Admits to Dropping Past Projects

The Azuki non-fungible token (NFT) project’s pseudonymous founder exposed his tumultuous history with abandoned projects on Monday night, sending NFT Twitter into a frenzy and the collection’s floor price plummeting.

The founder, who goes by the Twitter handle Zagabond, outlined his involvement with the projects Cryptophunks, Tendies, and Cryptozunks, all of which were abandoned by their original founding team, in a blog post.

Much of Azuki’s success, according to Zagabond, was due to learning from the other project’s mistakes.

“It’s critical that the community encourages innovators to develop and experiment during these formative days,” Zagabond wrote in the blog post. “Each experiment also includes important takeaways.”
The news sparked outrage among the NFT community, with many expecting the information will be made public via on-chain investigation in the coming days.

The post has rekindled the controversy over NFT founder transparency, which peaked in February when BuzzFeed revealed the true identity of the creators of the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
On the secondary market OpenSea, the price of an Azuki plunged from 19 ETH (about $42,000) to 10.9 ETH (roughly $24,000), but has subsequently risen to 12 ETH (around $31,000) at the time of writing.
Since their launch in February, Azukis has sold over 200,000 ETH (about $526 million) in total, the sixth most of any NFT project.
