    I don't understand half of what you all attempt to say here, either.

    The guys behind the video to make you believe this just pumped and dumped their own project. Using that video. That's what I just said.

    Does that invalidate the video?

    Isn’t pumping and dumping what all of these tulips are here for?

    If money isn’t real how can fake money be real?

    I just said they led off shilling Ryder Ripps and then ended the video shilling his project

    Weird how you want to spin this

    "shilling" a conceptual art project meant to lampoon NFTs and BYAC in particular.

    Does them reaching to make all of those connections in that video invalidate them pumping and dumping their own project that was almost an exact copy of the project they were linking to Nazisim?

    Again what are you saying? Ryder does this all the time. You guys are the ones catching wind of this and making a fuss about a very weird video. BAYC seems to be taking over NYC in the process. What are we going to do?

    Make the fact that the video was a shill of a project of the same one they were linking to Nazism?

    Or that it was a publicity stunt? So they could dump their project on new owners after hyping a video? Please clarify.

    Prior history with Ryder Ripps indicates he's a troll and has shilled, "FUD'ed" and dumped projects like this in the past. That's what it seems like to me

    I don’t know anything about the people that made the video but there is pretty compelling evidence in the that even if the project isn’t intended to be a representation of some alt-right proto-facism that the creators of it are pretty deep into such communities. You’ve been asked if you refute it many times and you keep responding with deflecting jibberish.

    There are compelling connect-the-dot links like any other conspiracy video. Please show me some evidence of where Twitter or social media seem to be taking this seriously. Where is the media outrage? Why isn't this getting picked up? The shit you guys are believing is jibberish so it gets responded with such. Boo hoo.

    Can’t we think that the video was dropped at a certainly time purposely while also thinking there are some legit nazi undertones to the bayc? Not sure it has to be one or the other. Maybe both sides are assholes

    Why is it important to talk about who he is at the beginning of the video? Or talk about his project at the end?

    He's done this copy/paste work several other times. He's trolled people like you before into believing nonsense to buy into his work.


    He's non-stop pumping his project and dumping his own project on people. Go look at his Twitter profile. That's what I just posted today, him and the other project members dumping on their community. That matters... lol

    He's so concerned about beating BAYC in trade volume despite the massive difference in floor price. The video seems to helped inject new wallets to his project so he could sell his.



    He's posted so damn much lately but he seemed to find the time to go on 4chan, or something similar, and post a screenshot of where the community said they would troll twitter to make them belive the link to. BAYC/Nazism was true

    Do a quick google search and link a few respected media outlets where BAYC appears and I'll name a top 3

    but again, you can't seem to think two things are true at the same time you just want to run defense

    Is he wrong about making all of those connections?

    You know I'm not going to dismiss every single one of them. You guys are trying to say I'm defending the project and the connection(s) when I'm saying perception and context behind Ryder does help. I can't answer that and time will tell. The one I "defended" was the fucking date, that's it. And mostly because my recollection of the Twitch video was wrong... that has never happened before!

    I highly doubt that the two founders of this project intentionally meant to make some cryptic connection to Nazism and also knew this project would take off as it did.

    I think Ryder is reaching and is a very creative troll.
