YouTube influencer Logan Paul has recently been criticized for his involvement in the CryptoZoo NFT project. The game promised players the ability to participate in a fun world and earn passive income, but ultimately resulted in significant losses for many who invested. Despite initial success, it was revealed that the initially released artworks were simply altered photos that could easily be found on the internet. In response to accusations of fraudulent activities, Paul denied the allegations and stated that he had unknowingly hired individuals with criminal backgrounds responsible for the development of CryptoZoo. However, the question of what happened to the investors’ funds remains unknown, and the situation is still ongoing.

Hence, Real Research, an online survey app, launched a survey on YouTuber Logan Paul’s failed crypto project, CryptoZoo, to gather more information on the likeliness of it being a scam.
