“There is no other way Take the game for instance my word is good but the game is STILL NEGATIVE. I COULD HAVE BOUGHT A BUGATTI but I made a game for the community. That’s the difference between me and others yet I face fud,” Shytoshi stated.

Following Shytoshi’s statement in the Telegram channel, the lead dev also hinted at crypto Fudders (FUDs), which he has been facing shots but has not responded. However, he has decided to face the Fuds this time around.

According to the dev, he does not like to pay attention to these people because they attack and drive users, investors, or collaborators away, and bring down the ecosystem rather than buttressing the community to move forward.

“So them fudders attack and this drives away users, or investors, or partners, which drives down use, basically shooting ourselves in the foot,” Shytoshi stated.
