The AzukiDAO has launched a proposal to hire a lawyer and pursue legal action against Zagabond for alleged misconduct. The aim of this legal action is to recover $39 million worth of ETH that was earned from Azuki's controversial "Elementals" NFT collection launch. If successful, the funds recovered will be used to support the development of the Azuki community. As of now, 88.35% of the DAO's BEAN tokens have voted in favour of the action, while 11.65% have voted against it. The Azuki team has faced criticism for the launch of their "Azuki Elementals" NFT collection on June 27. The collection sold out in under 15 minutes during a private sale, generating $38 million for the Azuki team. The backlash against the launch involved concerns about short pre-sale windows, website overload, issues with minting, and a perceived lack of originality in the NFT art. Some NFT holders expressed worries that the introduction of 20,000 new NFTs would devalue the existing ones in the collection. Additionally, allegations have emerged that the project team moved 20,000 ETH from the wallet shortly after the collection concluded
