Vitalik Buterin’s X account hacked, over $691K drained from victims’ wallets

Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum’s co-founder, allegedly had his X (formerly Twitter) account compromised. According to prominent blockchain investigator ZachXBT, the incident has led to victims collectively losing over $691,000 after clicking on a malicious link. The hacker shared a malicious link to an alleged free commemorative nonfungible token (NFT) available, enticing victims to connect their wallets before ultimately stealing all their funds. Consequently, this incident has led Ethereum developer Bok Khoo, better known as Bokky Poobah on X, to claim he has suffered losses in his CryptoPunk NFT collection. At the time of publication, the prevailing floor price for a CryptoPunk NFT stands at 46.99 Ether.
