Dillon Danis has allegedly just been tricked into promoting a fake NFT project, and failed to disclose that he was doing so as a paid advert. This is just the latest in a string of events that has brought Danis to the attention of the fans and media for less-than positive reasons. This incident was given even more attention due to the fact that Gordon Ryan shared it on his social media as well. This should come as no surprise either, as Danis and Ryan have a long history of going back and forth on social media and this is far from the first time that Ryan has taken shots at him
Dillon Danisrecently shared an image of an NFT on Twitter with the message:
“Check this out! SourzNFT Candies Are Moonbound!”
Another account then quote that tweet and declared that they had tricked Dillon Danis into promoting the NFT project, that was actually completely fake. Apparently, they paid him $1,000 to send the tweet and gave him the wording that he used in order for it to spell S.C.A.M as an obvious hint to the nature of the promotional work. As many people know, it’s common practice and in many cases a legal requirement to disclose to the public when a social media post is a paid advert with the use of the hashtag #ad.
On Twitter, this isn’t a requirement. So in fairness to Danis, he did not actually have to disclose that the tweet was a paid advert according to the Twitter terms of service. Regardless, it’s still something that many popular figures choose to do in order to remain open with their fanbase when promoting products or projects in exchange for money.
The news that Dillon Danis was allegedly tricked into promoting a fake NFT project without disclosing that it was a paid advert was announced in a post to Gordon Ryan’s official Instagram account.
