OKHotshot mainly stated that most people who invest in NFTs will lose money, and he mentioned blue chip NFTs and advised investors to run away since there are no steady investments in NFTs. He also suggested grabbing profits when they are available rather than depending on diamond handing, which is not the most excellent way for investors to generate money.

The majority of nft projects fail to stay above mint price 4 months after launch.

Breaching Over NFT Projects

The popular social networking platform for Non-Fungible Token (NFT) projects, Discord, has been the target of recent hacker attempts. According to new research from Web3 security company TRM Labs, during the last three months, there has been a rise in hacker attacks on Discord. 

In June 2022, the detection of phishing attempts connected to NFT minting scams held by using hacked Discord accounts soared by 55% as compared to last year. The data from TRM Labs also shows that the NFT market has struggled and lost around $22 million since May 2022.

Additionally, Bored Ape’s social media accounts Instagram and Discord compromised earlier this year led to a loss of over $13 million. Following that, hackers recently gained access to Premint, a well-known NFT registration platform, and stole 320 NFTs worth more than $400,000. Furthermore, NFT influencer Zeneca became the latest victim as the attackers promoted on Zeneca’s Twitter account in an attempt to attract investors.
