the “Firefest” is notorious as a high-profile scam. The festival was supposed to bring together an audience of stars and provide luxurious services. The guests who arrived in large numbers on site were soon disappointed by the reality. The organization of the festival turned into a nightmare with performances that in no way matched the advertised standard. A scam if you know the admission ticket was… $12,000. In addition, the person responsible for this festival was sentenced to 6 years in prison. The Netflix streaming platform recently released a documentary about this “festival”.
Trevor DeHaas, one of the unfortunate guests, tweeted the pphoto of his sandwich to testify to the scam. The sandwich is painful to watch with its two slices of cheese and its salad. Later, he decided to make money from this accident by selling his tweet with the picture of his sandwich in the form of an NFT. The starting sale price was set at $80,000 by Trevor DeHaas. The money he hopes to raise from the sale of this NFT should enable him to pay for certain medical costs associated with a kidney transplant.
