Facepalm: Like cryptocurrencies, non-tradable tokens (NFTs), including potential scams, carry inherent risks. It appears that the investors in the advanced Monkey Project have found a tricky way out of their capital after its maker disappeared with 798 Ethers, valued at approximately $2.7 million.
Evoles Apes is a set of 10,000 NFTs for sale on the OpenSea Market. The bottom line is that in addition to having NFTs, they can be used in the fighting game Evolved Apes where owners compete against the winners of Atrium Rewards. More than 4,000 NFTs have been sold. Vice writes that it started selling over a week ago. But the creator of the project, aptly named Evil Ape, suddenly disappeared with his official Twitter account and website. They also took with them 798 Ether, which was taken from the investors' money. This was because the NFTs and commissions were sold in the secondary market and were to be used to develop and market the project.
Everything looked suspicious in September: several project leaders were inexplicably absent, some statements that the MP called "unprofessional". Fans have been asked to investigate the situation by the Mike_Cryptobull community, which has spent more than $10,000 on 20 Evolved Monkey NFTs.
wrote in His report: “What happened was that the Evil Ape got his hands off the project and laundered the wallet with every ETH. Paying cash, paying marketing fees, paying rare items, developing games, and more.” The Evil Ape also has a number of 1/1 Ape NEFT'S Apes to offer gifts. Definitely a bad week for the #ballerapeclub monkey club! We have a new community of volunteers who come together in #fightbackapes and can use any support or expertise
