NFT On The Rise In 2023
After terrorizing the NFT market last year, hackers and scammers show no signs of slowing down, even in this new year. Yesterday, Nikhil Golapani, the Chief Operations Officer at Nike incubation studio, confirmed that his crypto wallet got hacked.
According to Golapani, scammers stole NFTs worth more than $173,000, including 19 CloneX NFTs worth over $138,000 combined, 18 RTKFT Space Pods (over $6,300 total), 17 Loot Pods ($6,200), 11 CryptoKicks ($3,000), and 19 RTFKT Animus Eggs ($20,200) in a phishing attack.
In a related attack last month, a scammer stole 14 Bored Ape Yacht Club non-fungible tokens worth more than $1 million from a crypto investor. The scammer faked to run a reproduction firm and instructed the NFT collector to use his crypto wallet to sign a contract via the fake company partner website.
