Degen Zoo goes viral while working to disapprove Logan Paul’s claims
Degen Zoo, which started as a joke to disapprove of Logan Paul, has gone viral as the community receives massive support.
Degen Zoo gains massive traction in a short time
Degen Zoo, heavily inspired by Paul’s CryptoZoo, was created by DaoMaker’s CEO, Christoph Zaknun. Zaknun began the project as a joke, but it quickly captured the community’s attention. It has evolved from an unusual concept into a viable game theory and human psychology experiment.
Degen Zoo saw a rise in interest in its initial development phase, especially after Zaknun broadcasted daily updates on the progress.
More than 250,000 people followed the Degen Zoo Twitter account. After the first testnet version, users racked up 30,000 testnet transactions from 3,000 players. In addition, more than 115,000 wallets joined the 1DO and pledged more than $700 million.
Its third testnet was its latest milestone, whereby it mentioned it would bring about a full simulation of the mainnet that’s coming up. The project will send testnet tokens to 25,000 wallets to get to grips with the try and release and develop rarest NFTs from their hatched eggs.
At the time, the NFT community is deciding whether the project is more than a useful project with only a backstory that has viral support. Hence, it will be a major determinant of the mainnet’s success.
Disapproving Logan Paul’s claims
Degen Zoo came about to publicly shame Logan Paul after he abandoned the CryptoZoo project, which failed to meet the community’s expectations.
Notably, Logan Paul has ditched two NFT projects he promoted using fame. He was first involved in the Dink Doink pump-and-dump scheme and then jumped into his project, CryptoZoo, which he abandoned after making false promises.
Degen Zoo is an NFT game where players get to balance their wants with the world’s most endangered species. The game replicates the human effect on the ecosystem and features 120 exotic animals, including the amur leopard and white rhino. The game involves killing or burning an NFT animal, taking the collection to extinction, and bringing awareness to human greed for wildlife.
The game also highlights the impressive speed at which development occurred, which is important to note since it was developed to disprove Paul’s claim that the development cycle takes a long time. Zaknun was able to deliver a viable game in a tricky timeline. It became the first GameFi to feature a speedup function whereby players can burn tokens to expedite NFT evolution.
