In a post on Twitter on the morning of January 26, Kevin Rose, founder of the famous NFT project Moonbirds, admitted that his crypto wallet containing NFT has been accessed by bad guys and from there withdraw assets.

According to data from the blockchain, the hacker stole 40 NFTs from Kevin Rose’s wallet, including 1 Autoglyph; 25 Chromie Squiggles; 1 QQL Mint Pass; 1 Admit One Pass from gmoney; 1 Cool Cat NFT; 1 The Currency NFT; 1 Quantum Key; and some NFTs OnChainMonkeys. The total value of these NFTs is approximately $1 million.

Thankfully, Rose kept her most precious NFTs in a separate vault on OpenSea, which contained 1,000 ETH ($1.6 million) CryptoPunk #5066.

Regarding the reason for the wallet hack, Kevin Rose is said to have signed a request to impersonate OpenSea. This is a phishing attack method that is easy to trap if crypto users are not careful.

In the past, there have also been many famous KOLs in the crypto industry whose wallets have been hacked because of carelessness, such as NFT.GOD investor, early Bitcoin developer Luke Dash Jr. or fund manager DeFiance Capital Arthur0x.

Moonbirds is an NFT project that emerged in April 2022 and still maintains a large community. To date, this collection has reached a total trading volume of 177,677 ETH, with a floor price on OpenSea of โ€‹โ€‹8.1 ETH. The number of investors owning Moonbirds is more than 6,500 people

However, Moonbirds caused controversy when it became one of the first NFT collections to open copyright to everyone instead of giving it to NFT buyers. Since that decision in July last year, the price of Moonbirds floor has continuously declined.
