Can You Pay With MetaMask to Attend deCashed?

The answer to the titled question above is: “Why yes, yes you can.”

The best evidence for that is a process we set up to register for our launch event on May 11th in New York City. No credit cards or cash are accepted to buy a ticket. It’s crypto-only. What kind? It’s your choice. For eth fans with MetaMask, registering can be accomplished in literally 20 seconds.

OpenSea is Sued Over Alleged Theft of a Bored Ape

OpenSeaPlaintiff Timothy McKimmy filed a lawsuit against OpenSea on Friday over the alleged theft of a Bored Ape NFT. McKimmy claims that he was the rightful owner of Bored Ape #3475, a digital piece of artwork that sports a cartoon ape wearing a blue hat and black sunglasses.

“On or about February 7, 2022, Plaintiff’s Bored Ape was stolen, listed, and sold to another individual on Defendant’s platform,” the lawsuit states. “Plaintiff did not list his Bored Ape for sale on the marketplace. Defendant’s security vulnerability allowed an outside party to illegally enter through OpenSea’s code and access Plaintiff’s NFT wallet, in order to list and sell Plaintiff’s Bored Ape at a literal fraction of the value (at .01 ETH).”

The plaintiff blames OpenSea’s technical “vulnerabilities” that resulted in the loss. He is bringing two claims:

(1) negligence
(2) breach of fiduciary duty, trust, contract, and implied contract.

Plaintiff seeks return of the Bored Ape, damages, and/or redress of more than $1 million.

As of this date, the ethereum address 0x78cc85c982435774c0768741e16b9b7e5083a221 is in possession of the Ape.

OpenSea Users Targeted in Exploit Roiling Crypto World

This story is developing…

opensea exploitOpenSea threw an alert up on its site on Saturday evening after dozens of users on twitter began clamoring about unusual activity that looked to be the result of a hack. Around 8:15 ET, one user claimed that 273 eth had been drained from his wallet in addition to countless NFTs.

Several users have pointed out that a malicious party could have copied and pasted a standard email that OpenSea had recently sent out to its users to inform them of a system update. A replica fake phishing email may have tricked users into signing away their wallet’s access.

Eth wallet: 0x3e0defb880cd8e163bad68abe66437f99a7a8a74 has already been fingered on Etherscan as the destination for the stolen funds. Presently the address has 641 ether in and dozens of NFTs including 3 Bored Apes.
