After dealing with mint delays, NFT Twitter’s criticism, and internal errors, y00ts team, and creator Frank DeGods are temporarily off of Twitter. Accordingly, the team aims to focus on its organizational issues and improve all aspects of the project. Is the community ready for this, though?
Why did y00ts’ Frank DeGods sign out of Twitter?
Earlier today, the y00ts NFT founder Frank DeGods made an unexpected announcement. The creator confirmed he’ll be off of Twitter for a few days and so will the rest of the y00ts team. However, he promised to “come back with a renewed focus on organization, clarity, and accountability.”
In addition, Frank DeGods also shared a brutally honest tweet posted a month ago. Here’s the powerful message tweeted on August 9th:
Of course, the y00ts’ creator received mixed reactions to his Twitter announcement. Some collectors promised to stick with him, while others angrily underlined y00ts’ mint problems again.
Will Frank’s decision ruin the hype around y00ts NFTs?
To begin with, the Twitter NFT community knows the importance of staying active via social media. Just as all eyes were on them, Frank DeGods and his team at y00ts decided to take a break from Twitter.
Nevertheless, the project continues to enjoy plenty of success. For example, the debut y00td NFT drop (for accepted scholarship applicants) surpassed 190k in trading volume less than 24 hours post-launch.
The long-awaited NFT drop caused surprising issues to the y00ts development team. Their debut launch happened 24 hours after the initial date due to a “blocker bug”. Then, waitlisted users had to wait too due to other internal errors.
According to Frank DeGods’ Twitter posts, the y00ts team must work more on their organizational skills to avoid similar incidents. In a recent tweet, they promised to refund every collector who entered Dustie’s raffle for the t00bs mint.
