2.2 million dollars of boring ape NFT stolen, OpenSea frozen transactions OpenSea has frozen $2.2 million of stolen Bored Apes NFTs after the owner reported the incident. A total of 15 apes and mutants have been stolen. The NFTs on the marketplace now have a warning saying that it is “reported for suspicious activity.” Buying and selling of such items are suspended. This is the first time NFTs from a major collection have been stolen in recent times and draws some concerns about security. The crypto community has been said that the decision to freeze the NFTs brings decentralization into question. They argue that the handling is pretty “anti-crypto,” according to some and that it was poor security on the part of OpenSea. OpenSea is the market’s most popular NFT platform and has attracted hundreds of thousands of users and heavy trading volume. With these NFTs becoming stolen, it will draw concern about the safety of other NFTs on the platform. Here too are the complainants saying that a truly decentralized marketplace wouldn’t allow bans.
