Bitcoin core dev calls out ‘misleading’ auction selling his code as an NFT
Luke Dashjr, one of the initial key developers behind BTC (BTC), reprimanded an auction site on a social platform that used his name and code to build and sell a NFT without his consent.
The key developer says he is not the first BTC developer to apply his name or content in this way.
In an article posted on Twitter on Feb. 27, the developer mentioned an irreplaceable dynamic password, along with a photo of his code, which was sold on an auction site for 0.41BTC (BTC), about $9500 at the time of writing.
"he was advertised and planned as my code in the media and presented to the public for marketing and profit," Dashjr explained.
Let me be clear-I am not involved in building and selling this or any NFT. I object to using my code or my name for this purpose. Subsequently, third parties are promoting products my name and my code in exchange for their own material benefits.
Dashjr revealed that the winner of the auction finally contacted him, and he had to tell them that he was not involved in the deal.
Dashjr claimed that a person-either a merchant or an auction site-offered to donate "90 per cent of the auction profits", but he refused.
"the public should also understand that merchants and / or auction websites have brought me 90% of the auction profit, if I choose to accept it." I think this is obviously for: (1) bribing me to pretend to be deaf and dumb; and / or (2) asking for my permission later, "he explained, adding:
He said: "I will not accept this kind of payment, the cost is induced by the public." I will not accept all such 'donations'.
"because of the misrepresentation involved and doubts about the actual buyer, I strongly recommend that 100% of the auction proceeds be returned to customers," Dashjr said.
According to Dashjr, "other BTC developers" are still in a similar situation and received "generous" donations in exchange for his collaboration; however, he did not provide any details.
"you don't have to change my name to cheat the public, so you can get rich quickly. This is not right. "Dashjr said.
"I object to the use of my name or code in such a scam. I want the public to know where I stand.
Early last year, OpenSea, the blockchain technology sales market, reported that more than 80 per cent of NFT built with its proprietary tools were "plagiarism, fake personal collections and spam messages".
It is reported that Dashjr is the tragic victim of the last day of hacking in 2022, which made him lose almost every BTC.
