YouTuber turned boxer Logan Paul can be considered at the pinnacle of this new plutocracy with his multi-faceted crypto investments. Moreover, Paul also launched his very own NFT series, 99 Originals. Meanwhile, in a recent interview, ‘The Maverick’ revealed how the Crypto crash affected his NFT project.

In response, Paul says, “No one does. Dude, it’s just like what the f**k is going on.”

Geordie added that Paul was ecstatic about his NFT project during his last visit to the podcast, also mentioning the Crypto crash before the launch of 99 Originals. Paul responded by saying, “Crashes, crashes. 9 months of the hardest, most passionate work of my life. I was about to drop a project that I believe could be the beginning of my magnum opus, my life’s work. And the market crashes.”

But, he also added, “But guess what? Our s**t is strong. Originals is strong.”

Moreover, Paul also adds that Originals is a tech organization disguised as an art project. He also mentioned that it is irrelevant that he launched his project at the ‘sh**tiest’ time for Crypto, as it is the future of communication.
