On December 16, the peer-to-peer trading platform NFT Trader suffered a security breach, allowing hackers to steal millions of dollars in nonfungible tokens (NFTs).

NFT Trader verified the situation on X (previously Twitter), advising users to cancel delegations to two addresses: 0xc310e760778ecbca4c65b6c559874757a4c4ece0 and 0x13d8faF4A690f5AE52E2D2C52938d1167057B9af.

According to, the stolen NFTs include at least 13 Mutant Ape Yacht Club and 37 Bored Ape tokens, as well as VeeFriends and World of Women NFTs, totaling over $3 million in losses.

Following the incident, rumors and misinformation spread on social media sites. Furthermore, it’s unknown how many hackers took advantage of the security hole. One of the attackers ascribed the original exploit to another user in a public message. “I came here to pick up residual garbage,” they said, asking ransom payments in exchange for the NFTs’ return.

“At first, I came here to pick up residual garbage, as I always do.” I initially thought I could just earn TOKEN, but I later discovered that I could also get NFT. I’m a good person, and the worth of these NFTs is sufficient for a person to live a free life, but I don’t care. “I’d rather pick up the trash,” one of the attackers stated.
