MontanaBlack NFT Sweepstakes Scandal: Fans Disappointed with Marcel Eris

Update from 13/02/2022, 08:50: MontanaBlack is pulling out of the affair. The Twitch streamer has a tangible NFT scandal on its hands. The 34-year-old first announced an NFT lottery that was suspected of fraud and now he is cleaning up behind him. The statement, in which Marcel Eris admitted that the organizer “Squiggles” is a fraudulent network, has since disappeared from the streamer’s Twitter channel – new feed for the critics of the NFT enthusiast.

It is not yet known if the organizer “Squiggles” has contacted MontanaBlack and the streamer has now given in to pressure from the network, or if the Twitch star is just planning a new, revised statement. The fact is: even hardcore fans are disappointed and demand more transparency and a new study from Marcel Eris, the real name of MontanaBlack. Even the OpenSea platform says that around 80% of all NFT projects have fraudulent tendencies on their own side.

MontanaBlack falls for scammers – NFT lotteries revealed as a scam

First report from 12 February 2022: Buxtehude – MontanaBlack has been under criticism for weeks for regularly hosting dubious NFT draws on Twitter. Now there was a big scandal, because one of the competitions turned out to be a scam. Apparently, scammers were behind the NFT project and wanted to rip off fans of MontanaBlack and other influencers. The Twitch streamer has now released a statement on Twitter, but his followers do not appear to be reassured.

What competition is it? MontanaBlack has been promoting NFT projects on Twitter for several weeks. He arranges competitions and distributes so-called whitelist places to the NFT projects. This allows winners to gain earlier access to NFTs and get preferential purchases there.

Now there was a competition from MontanaBlack together with the project “Squiggles”. There should be some NFTs to buy there, and Monte Whitelist sites are distributed precisely for this.

What was the problem with the draws? Squiggle’s NFTs should be published and traded on the OpenSea platform. However, OpenSea removed the entire project from their platform because they suspect a scam is behind it. The project managers are already said to have organized other NFT projects, and after enough buyers had jumped in, they closed their entire social media channels. So they put the money in their pockets and then just disappeared.

What did MontanaBlack say about the scam? MontanaBlack took distance Twitter of the project and insists he knew nothing about it. He also said that the winners of the competition and he himself had not been whitelisted and therefore could not invest any money. The bottom line is that there is something good about the situation, according to MontanaBlack.

MontanaBlack has been deep in the NFT industry for weeks – a paradise for fraudulent projects

What is behind these NFT projects? Currently, the NFT company is very large, especially on Twitter. More and more influencers are being asked to participate in competitions. They should promote the project and make as many fans as possible aware of it, and in return, many of them will receive information about when it is best to sell the NFTs again.

The procedure is often the same. There is a lot of publicity for an NFT project. It causes prices to rise as more and more people are interested and come on board. At some point, the advertising ends and the big culprits will withdraw from the project. As a result, prices are falling again and simple buyers are left with expensive NFTs.

MontanaBlack has also advertised for questionable projects several times. So far, only the Squiggles project has been revealed as a scam, but many fans from its community are generally skeptical about whether there are any reputable providers behind it.

Meanwhile, MontanaBlack is no longer trying to show publicly which NFTs it is buying and selling. For this, he now needs to transfer his complete NFTs from his main account to secondary accounts. However, these buyers can still be traced. Most recently, there was a scandal surrounding MontanaBlack involving a swastika NFT.
