  1. “The hacker has so far stolen 4 BAYCs and 6 MAYCs, worth 100s of millions of dollars”

    With the current valuations, 100s millions usd seems like a bit of exageration

  2. Sorry, but some of you guys behave like dicks. We can dislike NFTs or bored apes but laughing or telling NFTs are worthless when people lost something valuable to them is shitty no matter of everything. Not everyone is milionaire, if you would have one NFT bought for few hundreds dollars and worth now a lot how would you feel? Probably terribly. Have a little empathy.

    Situation is definitely bad for victims and hope it will end well for them. And fuck those hackers.

  3. To quote that guy on Twitter, I hope the victims immediately stop using those NFTs as profile pictures, since according to the blockchain they no longer own them.

  4. Hacker won’t gain anything really, the BAYC’s will be easily blacklisted from opensea and all major marketplaces and he’ll never be able to cashout

  7. Inside job. NFTs are worthless now. If they’re stolen, it’s the same as selling them for what you paid, if you’re insured.

  8. Ppl talking about NFT and I still don’t understand whooooo the fuckkkkkkk are going to buy a fucking bored ape at 25,000 ETH…. If you don’t had a bidder your only buyer is mister floor price 🥴🥴🥴🤣🤣🤣

  9. Those NFTs are only worth what people are willing to pay.

    Could easily show what NFTs they are and ask people not to ever pay for them, then they’ll have stolen exactly $0.
