NFT marketplace Fractal is created by Twitch co-founder Justin Kan. The platform had a disaster when its Discord bot was hacked to sell fraudulent NFTs, and they lost 150.000 dollars.

Some hacker managed to gain access to the Fractal Discord server posing as a bot with a link advertising a drop of NFTs to be sold. The scammers managed to sell 3,294 NFTs before it was shut down, and of course, no NFTs were sold.

Fractal issued a statement in response.

“Earlier today, approximately 373 of our community members fell victim to a scam posted on our Discord. We are sorry. We are going to make this right,” it reads.

“The hacker made out with ~800 sol (~$150,000) by managing to post a fake mint link in our #announcements channel. With over 100,000 members in our community, it’s quite impressive that the hacker only managed to dupe .3% of our community.”

The statement explains that those scammed will be refunded, before warning that “we must all be careful out there”.

“If something doesn’t feel right in crypto, please don’t proceed, even if at first it looks legitimate,” reads the statement. “We must use our best judgment as there’s no “undo button” in crypto.”

Kan himself issued a video statement on Twitter, apologizing to those affected and warning us to “trust your instincts if something seems fishy”.
