Cryptocurrency community cheated a fraudster and recovered stolen NFT tokens


The scammers received only 2% of the resale price they requested. Stolen items returned to owner

The World of Solana (WOS) cryptocurrency community has tracked down and recovered some of the NFTs stolen for resale, buying them back for 2% of the value assigned by the attacker.

WOS is an NFT collection on the Solana blockchain that consists of 2,222 unique tokens depicting various characters.

The official Unchained NFT studio page on the social network Discord was hacked, resulting in the hacker gaining access to 109 wallets. The largest loss was suffered by a user who lost 25 NFTs from the WOS collection.

He and other community members asked the developer Cyber Frogs to set a royalty of 98% on the stolen tokens. The company went along, and NFT fans began to see new lots posted on the MagicEden Marketplace, which sells items from the series.

Two days later, an intruder put all 25 NFTs up for sale on the platform. World of Solana members were able to buy 15 items from him, the remaining 10 were bought by another user.

Later, this buyer was sent a message that he had purchased stolen items and would not be able to sell them. He was offered a refund and agreed to help return the NFT.

On May 22, hacking Beeple’s account brought the attackers $438,000 in NFT, and in early May, Actor Seth Green lost $300,000 in NFT when he clicked on a phishing link.

o the fall of DOGE despite the support of Elon Musk.

The DOGE altcoin began the week falling 9.5% to 0.14 per coin. analyst Rakesh Upadhyay believes that this decline despite the support of Tesla CEO Ilon Musk, a major meme-coin fan, signals that his opinion will soon stop influencing the price of this cryptocurrency.

Last week, Elon Musk became Twitter’s largest shareholder after acquiring a 9.2 percent stake in the social network. On April 11, it became known that he would not join the board of directors, and Twitter shares fell in price by 1% at the opening of trading in the U.S.

DOGE also fell, although Musk immediately after the news of his share purchase offered to accept DOGE as payment for Twitter’s special services.

According to Upadhyaya, the fact that DOGE is not responding to Musk’s Twitter statements as it used to, means that the correlation between the businessman’s support and the coin’s price is declining.

Now, the analyst says, if the DOGE drops to $0.13, it will continue to fall to $0.1.

At the same time, if buyers manage to raise DOGE to $0.18, the growth to $0.23 is possible.
