Last year, the first NFTs in the Milady Maker collection were revealed as the creation of online collective “Remilia”.

The highest level, called the “SS”, has raised discussion of similarities to Hitler’s guard and the Nazi Third Reich.

Somehow that wasn’t the end, as darker revelations emerged as multiple sources reported Miya’s ties to ‘SystemSpace’, an obscure suicide cult that claims the reality is an artificial simulation and urges people to commit suicide to obtain the afterlife – which they have described as a cyberpunk paradise.
Born in 2017 as an online 4chan community, the movement has been called an attempt to “troll people into suicide”. Reality has shown that the cult was no joke, as a 17-year-old Canadian follower sadly committed suicide in 2017.

Apparently, it’s not just Miya, but also other members of the Remilia Collective who have racist views and ties to SystemSpace, says 0xngmi.
According to him, Remilia members followed several anorexic teenage girls on Twitter to further prepare them for eating disorders and self-harm.
Charlotte Fang and the Remilia team denied the connections and tried to hide the links between them through a network of anonymous accounts. However, they finally surrendered and admitted the truth on Saturday, May 21.
“OK, full disclosure: I was Miya,” Charlotte Fang wrote, admitting that her “toxic baggage” was hurting Milady Maker’s NFT community and she would be leaving the team.
OK, full disclosure: I was Miya. And his toxic baggage that hurts the Milady community and poisons the atmosphere. I apologize for trying to hide the past account – Miya has nothing to do with Milady Maker and should stay that way, so I’ll leave the team from here.
