Has porn star Lana Rhoades rug-pulled her NFT buyers?
More and more celebrities and influencers are issuing their own NFTs’. Adult entertainment star and influencer Lana Rhoades is one of them. At the launch of her NFT project Cryptosis, she promised buyers that her NFT collection of cartoon images of herself would be a valuable investment. Unfortunately, online scam hunter Coffeezilla found out that this statement was true, but only for herself, as you can see in the video below.
As shown, Lana Rhoades did launch the project and sold for about $ 1.5 million worth of Cryptosis. Unfortunately, she took the investments and ran off, apparently rug pulling her investors that leave behind in despair. Rhoades claims the funds have been stolen, for which she is not to blame. Besides that, she is disappointed since she believes that her community has become too negative and rude toward her. Of course, we’re curious about what to expect.

Anything but tasteless: father sells video of daughter being murdered as NFT
24-year old Alison Parker was conducting an on-air interview when she was shot to death on Aug. 26, 2015. Her ex-colleague and shooter Vester Flanagan has made a live stream of her shooting the victim. Now her father decided it’s time to turn the footage of the shooting of his daughter into an NFT. As tasteless as it may sound, the reasons behind this decision make that it’s not tasteless at all.
Because online and offline media have broadcasted the murder of his daughter on live tv, footage of the shooting keeps appearing on social media. However, since the shooter was working for a local CBS affiliate, he does not own the copyrights of the footage. Therefore, it’s hard for him to get the footage offline. By creating an NFT, the desperate father hopes that the copyright on the NFT provides him with the opportunity to be more effective and erase this content from the internet and social media. Given that copyright is a hot item in this part of the cryptomarket, the outcome of the copyright claim could become an important precedent.
