Late this week, it was announced that the Law firm Scott+Scott is now in the process of arranging a class-action suit against Yuga Labs. The reason why Yuga Labs may find itself on the other side of the courtroom is that they falsely promoted Bored Ape NFTs and ApeCoin, the collection’s native Ethereum token, as securities with guaranteed returns but which in reality plummeted in value over the last three months.

Most importantly, the company is best known for creating the world’s largest and most profitable NFT project to date, the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

The Feud between Yuga Labs & Scott+Scott

Law firm Scott+Scott started acquiring Yuga-backed NFTs and tokens back in April up until June with the hopes of guaranteed returns which is also promoted by Yuga Labs. Unfortunately, instead of getting guaranteed returns, the law firm is suspecting that they may experience losses because the Ethereum token plummeted in value over the last three months.

Although the firm is already in the preliminary stage of seeking plaintiffs who also suffered losses in association with the purchase of Yuga-backed NFTs and tokens from April to June, they have not left a response yet regarding the said announcement.
