Seth Green's NFT fiasco


Recommended Posts

Seth Green is having a bad time after he claims some of his NFT apes were stolen from him using a phishing scam. One very special ape in particular was taken and then sold to another user, which is bad news for him because Green planned and created an entire new TV show starring that digital ape NFT. Now that he no longer owns it or the rights to it, that TV show might be dead.

 

Famous (?) comedian, actor, and NFT buyer, Seth Green claimed on May 8 that an anonymous scammer stole some of his NFTs via a phishing scheme. On Twitter, Green broke the news of his stolen and resold NFT assets. The scammer grabbed a Bored Ape, two Mutant Apes, and a Doodle. The assets were ripped from Green’s wallet after he accidentally interacted with a scam site.

And as reported by Buzzfeed, this could cause some major problems for the actor who, since July 2021, had been creating a whole live-action TV show based on some of his NFTs. The show is planned to star Bored Ape #8398, who Green had named Fred, as a bartender.

 

“[I] have spent the last several months developing and exploiting the IP to make it into the star of this show,” Green said in an interview on May 21, “Then days before — his name is Fred by the way — days before he’s set to make his world debut, he’s literally kidnapped.”

 

During that same event where he was interviewed on stage, he debuted the first trailer for the show which looks about as funny and interesting as I expected a show about NFTs living in the real would be. (Which is to say, it looks pretty terrible…) Though if Green will even be able to finish and release the show is up for debate.

Not an important story, but an interesting one. Hearing about this story is probably more entertaining than the show would have been.

Just another point to show how outrageous the whole NFT concept is. If you're hacked you can be ruined just like bitcoin. ANY electronic currency or medium is only as secure as the severs can be made or the devices storing the items/info. At least a bank can be insured, how would you insure an NFT? Legal documents that would change with each sale is a possibility but would become cumbersome after time.🤷‍♂️
