Tracking a hacker that stole $10M from NFT projects

TL;DR

  • We were able to find and report a scammer who stole at least 10 million dollars from dozens of projects, including @BoredApeYC discord hack.
  • We waited for more than a month for an investigation to get going, but nothing seems to be moving. In the meantime the scammer kept stealing and made millions more .
  • Our goal is to get victims and competent people to come together and start a prosecution
