The attacker hacked the Discord account of Boris Vagner, BAYC’s community manager, and posted several phishing links in the account, its related metaverse account ‘Otherside’ and on the NFT fantasy football club Spoiled Banana Society’s (SPS) Discord account, reported Coindesk.
The global crypto market capitalisation went up by 3.43 per cent to $1.27 trillion as of 8.50 am. The global crypto volume was up by 18.04 per cent to $51.24 billion, as per Coinmarketcap data.
