“Did I imagine my very 1st purchase of a “useless” jpeg would cost $2m USD?” asked Cozomo on September 2. “Absolutely not. It should have been $4m. Frens, today I share the uncensored tale of how I entered the wild world of NFTs. From 0 to 8 figures in 30 days. Grab a glass, take a seat, & hold on tight,” the Twitter account added.

When he doxed himself, Snoop took to the Cozomo Twitter account and gave away a single ethereum (ETH) to one of his Twitter followers. “Dear frens,” Cozomo said, “since I announced my dox, events have transpired [that] most would not believe, nor understand. What I can share is I’ve received an outpouring of kindness here on Twitter. And many say they prefer to know me as Cozomo, and no one else.” Cozomo continued:
So here is what I’ve decided to do: To make this more fun, I have decided I will gift one random person who finds and shares the tweet, 1 ETH from the Medici Vault.
Interestingly, Cozomo further added that some people who directly messaged (DM) the Twitter account before it was revealed, may want to delete their DMs.
“Some important and powerful people have gotten word of this dox and are not pleased,” Cozomo stressed on Monday. “If we have had DM conversations I kindly and urgently ask you [to] delete them. Father made a phone call. The dox will go on.”
