Bored Ape #3547, a cyborg ape with x’s for eyes, was listed by owner maxnaut, whose real name is Max, on Saturday for well below market value.
“How’d it happen? A lapse of concentration I guess,” Max told CNET. “I list a lot of items every day and just wasn’t paying attention properly.”
Max said that he instantly saw the error but the transaction had already been completed. “And just like that, $250,000 USD was gone.”
Several errors regarding listing pricing for NFTs have been seen in recent months. In November, a CryptoPunk was accidentally listed for $19,000 USD instead of $19 million USD. And with prices for apes reaching up to $3.4 million USD each, sellers need to remain extra vigilant.
“The industry is so new, bad things are going to happen whether it’s your fault or the tech,” Max told CNET.
