Hey there, crypto enthusiasts and not-so-enthusiastic-but-still-interested folks! It’s time for another roundup of the most peculiar and downright bonkers hacking stories in the world of cryptocurrencies. Buckle up, because we’re about to dive into a whirlpool of stolen NFTs and shrewd blockchain maneuvers. Brace yourselves, and let the laughs begin!
First off, we have the case of the notorious #Fake_Phishing182232 (couldn’t they come up with a better name?), who managed to snatch not one, not two, but THREE NFTs. Among the stolen digital treasures were the prestigious #BoredApeKennelClub #5330 and the mysteriously named #Otherdeed #68622. Our thief extraordinaire even had the audacity to sell them for a decent ~2 $ETH. Talk about making a fast buck, or rather, ETH!
Speaking of NFTs, the #PudgyPenguins were also caught in the crosshairs of the dastardly #Fake_Phishing182853 on the popular platform #Blur. A pair of these adorable digital creatures, including the preciously numbered #1602, were whisked away by our elusive thief. How dare they steal our beloved digital penguins! We cry foul, or should we say, fowl play?
Now, let’s take a detour into the world of cybercurrency cat burglars. Hold on to your wallets, folks, because this one’s a doozy. An individual going by the name 0xa262 decided to take a joyride on #Polygon, draining a staggering ~3.376M $MATIC and exchanging it for a whopping ~72.29 $BTC. With moves like that, they’ll be dancing the Cha-cha on the blockchain!
But wait, there’s more! Our agile drainer cunningly transferred 800K #MATIC (approximately $448K) to not one, but TWO new addresses, 0xD807…59Bc and 0x71d6…B14a. Looks like they’re not putting all their hacker eggs in one digital basket. Currently, the drainer is comfortably sitting on a fortune of ~10.1M $MATIC (worth a whopping ~$5.7M) and those 72.29 $BTC on #Polygon. Talk about taking a dip in the pool of ill-gotten gains!
It seems like even cyberspace isn’t safe from the cunning thieves of the digital realm. The notorious 0x0422…c272 managed to snatch the official #BEANZ wallet, specifically the precious #15758. Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t covet those precious #BEANZ? We hope there’s a digital police force on the case, chasing down the wrongdoers!
In total, a jaw-dropping ~$41M worth of cryptocurrencies were pilfered from @Stake, with a significant chunk (~$7.85M) siphoned off from #Polygon (that’s a jaw-dropping 14.24M $MAITC). The colossal crypto caper occurred on September 5, leaving us all with one thought: can’t these hackers take up a more respectable hobby, like knitting or pottery?
And there you have it, folks! Another thrilling episode of Hacking Hijinks that proves once again that the world of cryptocurrencies is never short on drama and surprises. Will the stolen NFTs ever be recovered? Will the mastermind drainer slip up? Only time will tell. In the meantime, let’s keep our passwords strong, our wallets secure, and our sense of humor intact. Happy hacking days, everyone!
