Nifty Gateway users have complained about NFT theft. The marketplace denied the attack

Users of the Nifty Gateway marketplace have complained about the theft of non-interchangeable tokens (NFT). Representatives of the platform confirmed the interception of some accounts.

The marketplace noted that the affected users did not enable two-factor authentication (2FA) and recommended that everyone do it.

“We have not noticed any signs of compromising the platform. Our team communicates with a small number of affected users. We continue to analyze what happened,” Nifty Gateway said.

One of the users who reported the theft of $10,000 worth of NFT closed his Twitter account.

Another victim told about the interception of $150,000 worth of assets by hackers, as well as the use of a credit card attached to the account to purchase $20,000 worth of tokens.

Later, he said that Nifty Gateway solved the problem and returned all the stolen assets. He also confirmed that he had not enabled 2FA in his account settings.

Previously, former DC Comics artist Jose Delbo earned $1.85 million on the sale of NFT with Wonder Woman. The publishing house urged to abandon the sale of non-interchangeable tokens due to intellectual property violations.

In March, an NFT copy of a burned Banksy painting called “Morons” went under the hammer for 228.69 ETH. Christie’s auction house has sold a Beeple painting titled “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” for a record $69.3 million.

What is NFT?

Recall that the head of Tesla, Elon Musk, released a techno track about NFT and announced that he put it up for sale. Valuables has already offered more than $1.1 million for a tweet with this news on the marketplace.

A few days ago, billionaire Mark Cuban put up for sale one of his motivational quotes in NFT format.
