EminenceNFT Project Announces Airdrop of EMN Tokens to Victims of Original Rug Pull
YFI’s Andre Cronje has said the project has no association with his Eminence, and they are unauthorized to sell or use the art or gaming engine.
An upcoming NFT trading card game, Eminence, has announced the airdrop of new EMN tokens to all the 3500+ victims of the EMN rug pull, no matter if they hold the original tokens or not.
Back in late September 2020, YFI creator Andre Cronje’s unreleased and unfinished gaming multiverse project resulted in the loss of $15 million. The latest project noted,
“We will be airdropping the new EMN token to all of those that were affected by @AndreCronjeTech rug pull. All 3500+ of his victim.”
The reasoning behind this decision is “Andre and Co. scammed you guys twice by enabling a 100% tip during the refund claiming process. Most of those 3500 victims got scammed out of their refund too,” noted the project on its Twitter while announcing the upcoming airdrop on Sunday.
This new EMN token will be an in-game currency in the project’s upcoming game Eminence: The World of Artalys.
However, Cronje says this news project has no association with his Eminence, none whatsoever, and any using or selling of art they are doing is unauthorized. Cronje said over two weeks back,
“Eminence NFT is not associated with Eminence or playeminence. Nor do they have the rights and licenses to sell or use the art or gaming engine. Any representation of the art is done so without authorization.”
Meanwhile, the new project claims that “Andre Cronje and co. were the ones who rug pulled you using our name. We profited $0 from this. But we are going to make things right and clear our name by airdropping the new EMN token even though we had nothing to do with it.”
The new EMN token won’t be pegged 1:1 to the original EMN, but it will be proportionate to your holdings at the time of the rug pull.
EminenceNFT will also be creating its own marketplace for users to buy and sell those tokens.
