After announcing his not-so-well received partnership with an NFT project, voice actor Troy Baker has now cut ties with VoiceVerse NFT.
Some of Troy Baker’s most popular roles include Pagan Min from Far Cry 6 and Joel from The Last of Us Part II. Only two weeks has passed since his initial announcement, and it was negatively received by both his fans and the voice acting industry. The whole partnership announcement is as reads:
I’m partnering with VoiceverseNFT to explore ways where together we might bring new tools to new creators to make new things, and allow everyone a chance to own & invest in the IP’s they create. We all have a story to tell. You can hate. Or you can create. What’ll it be?
People were quick to react violently, while some attempted to educate him on how NFTs are negatively affecting the world. This negative reception prompted a long statement from Troy Baker, saying that “[he’s] grateful there are those who are passionate about their stance & not only feel safe to express that but also have the means to do so,” and that it was a “bad attempt to bring levity.”
A couple of weeks after, he issued a new statement announcing that he has cut his partnership with Voiceverse. It reads:
Thank you all for your feedback and patience. After careful consideration, I’ve decided to not continue the partnership with VoiceVerseNFT. Intentions aside, I’ve heard you and apologize for accusing anyone of “hating” just by simply disagreeing with me.
