Did Keith Gill (RoaringKitty) really sell his X account.  X, formerly named Twitter, is one of the biggest social media platforms on the planet, but we don't need to tell you that.

Polymarket, a website that lets users bet on the outcome of events with crypto, replied to @SCHL0MS' tweet saying that it "can confirm" the transaction occurred and that it helped facilitate the sale of Gill's X account.

SCHLOMS is described by ThisPaper.com as a "Conceptual artist and crypto-dadaist Shl0ms brings the heat with limited edition NFTs showcasing the aftermath of an exploded Lamborghini Huracan sports car to shed light on greed arising from monetary motivation in cryptocurrency."

Polymarket bettors aren't buying that Gill sold his X account, at least not yet.  Only 8% are backing that he did sell the account.  Supposedly X accounts can be sold for around $200 for every 5,000 followers, or about 4 cents per follower.  Gambling911 has no way of verifying this to be the case.

Reddit users are questioning whether Gill was behind Roaring Kitty's recent social media posts, an account that started tweeting again for the first time in three years this past week.

Inactivity on Gill's other social media accounts, including Reddit and YouTube, raised suspicions among Redditors.

In case you don't know, Gill, 37, is a YouTube influencer, trader, and is the man behind the GameStop stock surge back in 2021.  He also goes by the handle "DeepF--kingValue" on Reddit.

He shared his thoughts about GameStop on Reddit and YouTube, expressing why he believed the company was undervalued, even going to to invest $50,000 into GameStop.  Others soon joined him and eventually the stock price's value skyrocketed to $483 in January 2021.

According to the SEC report, this volatility was only in part due to the massive buying power of retail investors. The company received significant media attention during January and February 2021 due to the volatility of its stock price in the GameStop short squeeze.

On Sunday Gill posted a sketch on his X account @TheRoaringKitty of a man sitting in a chair and leaning forward while holding what appears to be a video game controller.  This was the first tweet from the @TheRoaringKitty account since June of 2021. This post has since garnered over 124,000 likes and 25 million views.

Polymarket explains how this bet option will be settled.

This market will resolve to "Yes" if it is confirmed by May 31, 2024, 11:59 PM ET that the Twitter account @TheRoaringKitty (https://twitter.com/TheRoaringKitty), believed to be owned by Keith Gill, was sold or transferred to another individual between the time of his 2021 post and his May 12 post. Otherwise, this market will resolve to “No”.

The primary resolution source will be a public statement from Keith Gill confirming the sale or transfer of the account, however, a consensus of credible reporting may also be used.

Polymarket does not accept bets from those based in the U.S.
