Crypto News – 3 Rare Ape-themed NFTs Hacked in Bored Ape Phishing Scam

Crypto News – It looks like a malicious actor took three NFTs worth a total of 54.8505 ETH ($164,400) from a holder of the Bored Ape Yacht Club. The Bored Ape holder claimed to have lost the 3 rare NFTs due to a phishing assault, as first reported by the crypto investigator ZachXBT. The wallet linked to the BAYC NFT transactions has been involved in prior phishing attacks, according to the blockchain explorer Etherscan. The specifics of this phishing attack’s execution are still unknown. 

Characteristics of the 3 Rare NFTs Under Attack

The Bored Ape NFTs that were phished were BAYC #2100, #6736, and #7531. The NFT marketplace OpenSea estimates their values to be 21 ETH ($62,960), 15.8505 WETH ($47,500), and 18 ETH ($54,000), in that order. 

Just 4% of the 10,000 NFTs exhibit the characteristic of white fur, which is seen in BAYC #7531. BAYC #2100 contains the attributes of Bored Pizza (0.5%), tie-dye shirt (1%), girl’s short hair (2%), blindfold (3%), gold stud (4%), and pink fur (5%). BAYC #6736 has the trait of a “small grin” with a rarity of 3%.
