Cryptocurrency journalist and insider Colin Wu shared a screenshot of OpenSea’s main Discord channel, the world’s largest marketplace for non-fungible tokens. Seems like scammers have taken control of it.

No, YouTube has not scored a partnership with OpenSea

Mr. Wu took to Twitter to share that scammers hacked into OpenSea Discord’s main server and started publishing fake partnership announcements.

Scammers have announced that OpenSea is reportedly partnering with YouTube video hosting and is poised to make an exclusive NFT drop to celebrate this partnership.

Only the first 100 participants can claim their tokens with a 100% discount. As such, OpenSea Discord followers should immediately click on what appears to be a phishing link.

Fraudsters are also trying to lure OpenSea supporters into promising them the “insane utilities” YouTube will provide to those who have claimed the NFTs. Like other fraudsters, they claim that this offer is exclusive and that the coin will not get a second round.

OpenSea Launches API-Based Tool for Crypto Professionals

As previously described by U.Today, on April 1, 2022, a number of Discord servers associated with high-value NFT collections were hacked in the same way.

Namely, the fraudsters compromised the Discord server of the Bored Apes Yacht Club (BAYC) collection and managed to steal $65,000 in Ethereum (ETH) equivalent from one of its followers.

OpenSea also launched an API module earlier today. The new protocol, called the OpenSea Stream API, is set up to enable developers to stay informed about all the crucial events in the OpenSea ecosystem, such as price fluctuations, offers, bids and ownership changes.

Developer documentation required for OpenSea API integration is already available on the OpenSea official website.
