Return of Fame Lady Squad

The Fame Lady Squad (FLS), a non-expendable token (NFT) avatar project that was allegedly created by an all-female team, will relaunch today with a new team after it was discovered that three Russian men were behind the project a early this month.

The project’s NFTs represent female cartoon avatars, and the tokens have generated $ 1.9 million in total sales since their launch on the OpenSea Marketplace in mid-July.

The FLS website formerly listed three team members named Cindy, Kelda, and Andrea who had female avatars.

On August 10, Fedor Linnik, co-creator of the NFT Neural Pepe project, tweeted that he had collected “enough evidence” to connect three men to the project on August 10, specifically highlighting the pseudonymous developer “D Mefi” as one of the creators of FLS.

Following the allegations, Russian developer Max Rand also confessed to work on the project via Twitter the same day. The FLS Twitter account also confirmed the news, but did not name the third member of the team.

After facing public backlash, the founders of FLS reportedly conducted a poll on Twitter asking the community if they should hand over the project’s smart contract to a new owner, to which more than three-quarters of those surveyed voted in favor.

FLS stated that they have handed over the smart contract to well-known NFT advocate, “digitalartchick.” Digitalartchick has since passed the project on to a team of women that includes NFT collector Ashley Smith and NFT advisor Daniel Davis.

The FLS website is offline at the time of writing.
