Khabib Nurmagomedov‘s venture into the cryptocurrency world drew a lot of flak from the MMA community and, surprisingly, even from his ardent fans as well. Despite facing criticism upon the initial announcement of his involvement with the world of NFTs and crypto, Nurmagomedov has very recently made yet another social media post promoting another similar venture.

While the former lightweight champ faces backlash for this venture, a tweet from another influential personality showed a stark contrast in his approach towards dealing with the crypto industry. Controversial figure Andrew Tate recently tweeted that he shut down a massive financial offer involving cryptocurrencies, claiming that he refused to be part of a scam, unlike others.

Tate, a former kickboxer, claimed in a tweet that he had declined an offer to get involved in a crypto venture which interestingly also had massive financial gains for him. Stating that the reason for him saying no to such a lucrative deal was because he did not wish to scam anyone. He wrote, There are 2.5 million people on my email list. I have been offered 30,000,000 to email out a crypto and pump it. I said no. I refuse to scam. Refuse. I do not sell my soul like everybody else did.”

While this tweet does portray the sentiments that many people have when it comes to crypto brands and other aspects of virtual currencies, the fact that he refused to accept the huge amount involved must have come as a bit surprising for his followers.

Earlier this year, ‘The Eagle’ announced his partnership with a crypto mining company and even promoted the sale of his NFTs. Nurmagomedov’s tweet back in March also claimed that a few lucky individuals who purchased the NFTs would get a chance to join in for private events with him as well. Along similar lines, a social media post by him stated that the NFTs which were based on his career as an MMA fighter helped the holders to mine BTC, making a lucrative idea for people planning to purchase them.

Despite these promises, Nurmagomedov faced heavy criticism from fans following these posts and his recent tweet too has faced similar comments.

So, let us know what you think about it. Does Nurmagomedov deserve the scathing comments? Or is he being treated too harshly by his fans?
