Recent NFT sales decline is being widely discussed on social media. Many people have theories of their own. But some are ready to take the blame.
One of them is Rick Ross, who thinks he may caused NFT market crash.
In his recent Instagram story, Rick Ross kind of apologized for his earlier comments about crypto investors. It looks like he truly thinks those comments have something to do with what happened to NFT market.
“Man, I just woke up, and I heard the NFT market crashed 92 percent, I hope that wasn’t cause of my post,” Rick Ross says in the video.
Could Rick Ross crash NFT market with his post?
Rapper’s previous post about investing in NFTs wasn’t likely to cause the dip in sales. But Rick Ross did take shots at those buying NFTs into the metaverse.
He basically tried to challenge those people investing into the metaverse to show themselves.
“The metaverse, crypto y’all get so much money where you at? Where you at?” he said.
He immediately cleared that he wasn’t trying to make them show the money, because – obviously – he has plenty of money himself.
“I got a lot of money I don’t even need that fake money but show my homies what the metaverse about.” Rick Ross claimed.
