Taking a Stand Against NFTs on Neopets
On September 22, 2021, the Neopets Metaverse (a third party working with Neopets) was revealed to be a NFT project working along with JumpStart, Cherrypicks, and Moonvaults.
Since the first launch, various other fan sites and Neopets members have walked off the site in protest of this update. The Neopets Metaverse has posted hurtful content (racist, sexist) towards the members of the Neopets community and have been very negative in trying to support the new update.
The Neopets community overwhelmingly rejected the Neopets Metaverse NFT project, and Jellyneo organized a weekend protest from October 8th – 10th. There is ample information around about the developing news and various polls on the subject. Between hundreds of voters within the polls in the communities, there has yet to be one person who supported NFTs or the company supporting the NFTs.
If you would like to learn more about NFTs, lot’s of information can be found within the Neopets Nation facebook group and the Jellyneo main page. Myself and many others have since discontinued our Neopets memberships to no longer support the website until there is a change.
If you’re willing, we ask that you also take a stand by limiting your time on Neopets and cutting off any financial ties (NC, Memberships) you may have to supporting the cause.
