OpenSea one of the best NFT markets is now facing a new charge. Renowned political NFT artist Stonetoss has charged the platform and Rarible of delisting the new NFT series Flurks.
The artist referred to OpenSea and Rarible on Twitter to have an explanation of what occurred. “I believe this was probably the result of a mass reporting campaign performed in bad faith.” Stonetoss wrote.
The Flurks series, which was at the center of the controversy, performed well before OpenSea removed Flurks from the list. The series with 5,000 NFTs sold in less than half an hour for $2 million. Within hours, it generated more than 100 ETH in trade volume.
Because of his work in the political arena, Stone explained many of the charges done against him in the past. Being called a Nazi sympathizer is one of them.
“My reputation as an artist is exactly because I can work in this censorious environment,” he said. Stone believes that the reason that OpenSea removed Flurks from the list is because it contained the Confederate flag.
The artist also responds: “Remember that my collection also had features like a Gay pride flag, a Gadsden flag, a Soviet army ushanka (hat) and a hammer- and- sickle shirt.”
