Azuki NFT Project Hit by Twitter Hack, Loses $750K

Azuki NFT

Hackers have taken over the Twitter account of the top non-fungible token (NFT) project, Azuki, and have stolen over $750,000 worth of crypto assets.

The hackers posted a wallet-draining link disguised as an invitation for users to participate in a virtual land mint in The Garden, Azuki’s native metaverse platform.

Wallet drainers are phishing mechanisms that trick victims into approving transactions that transfer crypto assets from their wallet to that of the hackers.

The attackers made off with over $751,321 worth of USDC, 3.9 ETH, 11 NFTs, and $6,742.62 in USDC from other crypto wallets. Azuki has since reclaimed control of its Twitter account and an investigation is currently underway.

This is not the first time that the Azuki NFT project has been the main character in a social media crypto scandal, last year, hackers hijacked several verified Twitter accounts and used them to promote the airdrop of fake Azuki NFTs.
