Paul claims defamation after Coffeezilla's videos accuse him of scamming fans through the troubled NFT project, seeking $75,000 in damages.

Logan Paul, a well-known internet personality, has taken legal action against fellow YouTuber Coffeezilla, whose real name is Stephen Findeisen. Paul claims that Coffeezilla's coverage of his involvement in the CryptoZoo project has unfairly damaged his reputation.

Background on the CryptoZoo Project

CryptoZoo was an NFT game that Logan Paul promoted. The game promised users the ability to buy, sell, and trade unique digital animals. However, the project faced significant issues, leading to disappointment among its users and allegations of it being a scam.

Accusations and Legal Action

Coffeezilla released a series of videos and comments accusing Logan Paul of scamming his fans through the CryptoZoo project. Coffeezilla's content suggested that Paul had malicious intentions and mishandled the project, leading to financial losses for many participants.

In response, Logan Paul has filed a defamation lawsuit against Coffeezilla. Paul argues that the accusations are baseless and have caused significant harm to his reputation and mental health. He is seeking $75,000 in compensatory damages.

Paul's Defense

Logan Paul maintains that he had good intentions for the CryptoZoo project and relied on advisors to guide its development. He also points out that he has already refunded over $1 million to NFT purchasers from his own funds, demonstrating his commitment to resolving the issues faced by the project.

Paul further alleges that Coffeezilla's motivations were not purely altruistic. According to Paul, Coffeezilla launched a paid Patreon account following his initial video on CryptoZoo, suggesting that the accusations were driven by personal gain.

Current Status

As of now, Coffeezilla has not responded to the lawsuit. The legal proceedings will determine whether Coffeezilla's statements were indeed defamatory and whether Logan Paul is entitled to the damages he seeks.


This case highlights the complexities and potential pitfalls of the rapidly evolving NFT and cryptocurrency space. It serves as a reminder for both creators and consumers to exercise caution and due diligence when engaging in such projects. Additionally, it underscores the importance of responsible journalism and the potential consequences of spreading unverified information.
