This is an ancient tale, as old as time.
A twitter user known as BoredApeG gave back an ape belonging to a member of the BAYC. He devised a genius plan to get his ape back and asked other members for their apes to trade for it, plus 5 ETH in return. While letting the members trade their apes for his.
After BoredApeG came up with the deal for the stolen ape, he tried to find the other ape, but was unable to do so. As a result, one BoredApe saved another.
This story is a reminder of how great the BAYC community is. This tweet by BoredApeG is a great example of the need to support one another.
We as a NFT community need to remain vigilant and support one another as scammers get more sophisticated in our space. It is my hope that sharing our story will further that message. He said after saving the Bored Ape.
As a result, the NFT community needs to unify and help each other out. Scammers and hackers will continue to take advantage of NFT collectors. Thus, it is crucial that we up our security protocols.
