Snoop Dogg is no stranger to the world of non-fungible tokens (Cozomo de’ Medici, the California rapper ); soon after having revealed himself as pseudonymous NFT whale sold 1,000 NFT passes for a private party in September.
Now he’s cracking down on users spamming his wallet with unsolicited jpegs.
“Mass spamming of garbage jpgs is an insult to the artists who work so hard to earn their way into collector wallets,” he wrote from the Cozomo Twitter handle.
Spamming refers to the practice of sending unsolicited NFTs to an wallet. Perhaps the most infamous example of this was when Budweiser found that its Ethereum wallet had been sent various cartoonish dick pics as NFTs (which the beer brand has since removed).
Cozomo added that the first platform that can solve the spamming problem will also “rocket past OpenSea,” referring to the NFT sector’s largest marketplace.
No Fakes and no Matic-based NFTs
These can be cleverly disguised imitations of the originals—or just low-effort knockoffs. PolygonPunks, for example, is a rather clear imitation of CryptoPunks, but is built on the speedy layer-2 solution . Beyond the fact that these projects aren’t on Ethereum, there is very little difference in the 8-bit art.
They don’t trade for nearly the same value as an original CryptoPunk, but Snoop went out of his way to remind his Twitter followers that he doesn’t “buy on the Matic [Polygon] chain.”
