The video also depicted the co-owners discussing Moist’s reluctance to engage in business with crypto sponsors that have become more and more present in the esports industry over the past year.
“Don’t you have to win a lot of money to win that much?” Ludwig asked Cr1TiKaL.
“Didn’t Susan [Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube] give you a lot of money to burn?” he replied.
Towards the end of the clip, the new business partners could be seen burning fake money together.
