Logan Paul Reveals Why He Deleted His CryptoZoo Defense Video

Logan Paul is already regretting his latest YouTube upload. Just last week, the internet personality issued a response video in which he blasted YouTuber Coffeezilla's probe into "CryptoZoo," a blockchain-based game developed by Paul and his business partners. In short, Coffeezilla's investigation led him to speak with people involved in the creation of the game, as well as investors who felt they had been misled about the stability and functionality of the project. A number of people claimed that the game did not work as intended, which is why the official "CryptoZoo" website has been claiming for months that updates are on the way. Coffeezilla concluded that the game was essentially a scam with millions of dollars tied up in it.


In a video that was apparently filmed and edited against the advice of his legal team, Paul took issue with a number of Coffeezilla's findings, throwing a number of prior associates under the bus and threatening Coffeezilla with a defamation lawsuit. "I suggest you use the money you got from pumping your Patreon to hire a good lawyer," Paul warned towards the end of the video.

A few short days later, Logan Paul's tune appears to have significantly changed. Over the weekend, he removed his video firing back at Coffeezilla from his YouTube channel (although there are still reaction clips all over YouTube). Not only that, but Paul has gone so far as to apologize to both Coffeezilla and the "CryptoZoo" community. Of course, this is a major reversal from his stance last week.


Coffeezilla reveals he's spoken to Logan Paul

On January 6, just three days after Logan Paul released his explosive video, Coffeezilla tweeted that the YouTuber was attempting to make amends. "Logan called me. He said he's deleting the two responses, and is dropping the lawsuit threats," explained Coffeezilla, who revealed that he would be holding off on posting his own response video until he saw what Logan Paul's next upload included. "Hopefully this time he takes accountability and refunds the victims of CryptoZoo. That's what matters." This echoes Coffeezilla's previous sentiments, in which he tweeted about his disappointment in Logan Paul for never addressing the fans who felt they'd been scammed by the game.


It seems as though Paul is ready to squash his beef with Coffeezilla and move forward. Coffeezilla has gone on to post screenshots from the "CryptoZoo" Discord server, wherein Logan Paul appears to be promising real change and results. On top of confirming that he had deleted his videos blasting Coffeezilla, Paul told the members of the server that he should not have rushed into making the videos, which he described as "misaligned with the true issue." 

It's unclear at this time what Logan Paul sees as the "true issue," but from the looks of things, he has a plan.

Logan Paul and the future of CryptoZoo

On Discord, Logan Paul wrote, "I'm grateful [Coffeezilla] brought this to light. I will be taking accountability, apologizing, and coming forward with a plan in the near future." He then went on to thank his followers, saying, "I know it's been bumpy but your support is everything to me and I will make this right."


At the end of his (now-deleted) response video to Coffeezilla, Logan Paul promised that the full version of "CryptoZoo" would be launching at some point in either 2023 or 2024. These most recent Discord promises seem to imply that Paul and his team will be working to make sure that comes to pass.

Logan Paul's update on the future of "CryptoZoo" should be arriving later this week, and it would seem the influencer has his work cut out for him. "CryptoZoo" has become a bit of an internet punchline in the last month. Not only do jokes and memes about the scandal abound on social media, but one YouTuber, Yipy, took it upon themselves to create a "working" version of the game, called "RealZoo." According to Yipy, the game was built in just three hours' time — and it can be played for free, unlike "CryptoZoo." 


As of this writing, neither Coffeezilla nor Logan Paul have explained what exactly led to Paul's change of perspective regarding Coffeezilla's investigation, but it seems he now has bigger fish to fry. Fans and onlookers will definitely want to tune into Paul's next YouTube upload for further details. Rehabilitating the public image of "CryptoZoo" is not going to be an easy feat, but it sounds like Paul will soon be making an attempt to do so, starting with the deletion of his controversial response videos.
