Two prominent NFT collectors had their wallets hacked and robbed of dozens of high-value NFTs.

NFT collector CryptoNovo

One, NFT collector CryptoNovo, tweeted on January 3 that he had been hacked.

Hackers seem to have taken a fair amount of NFTs, including 3 CryptoPunks, 1 Bored Ape, 1 Mutant Ape, 3 Meebits, and 2 CloneX.

Within 16 hours of hacking the wallet, the hackers sold the 10 NFTs for a total of 492.66 Ethereum (about $618,000 at the time of writing). According to ZachXBT, which investigates on-chain hacks and fraud, the money was then transferred to an account on cryptocurrency exchange ChangeNOW.

The hackers may also have taken over CryptoNovo’s Discord account.

“DO NOT SEND ANYTHING TO ANYONE WITH MY NAME AND ACCOUNT NUMBER!” CryptoNovo tweeted.

“What you see below is a fake Discord account”

Nikhir Gopalani, COO of RTFKT

Another is Nikhil Gopalani, COO of RTFKT, an NFT project now owned by Nike. Gopalani said his wallet was leaked through a phishing scam.

Two wallets are believed to have stolen 19 CloneX, 18 RTKFT Space Pods, 17 Loot Pods, 11 CryptoKicks, and 19 RTFKT Animus Eggs from Gopalani’s collection.

Not all NFTs have been sold, so it’s difficult to estimate the exact value of each NFT, but given the current price of each collection, it’s worth over $140,000 in total. I think that the.

CoinDesk reached out to CryptoNovo and Gopalani for comment, but did not receive a response as of this writing.
