NFT collection Azuki’s Twitter Account Hacked

In this post:

  • The Twitter account for the non-fungible token (NFT) collection Azuki was hacked on Friday afternoon.
  • Followers were cautioned not to open any links in current tweets.
  • The Azuki name and branding have previously been exploited by hackers to deceive unsuspecting Twitter users.

According to Hoshiboy, Azuki’s project’s co-founder, the Twitter account for the non-fungible token (NFT) collection Azuki was hacked on Friday afternoon.

The collection’s native metaverse platform, The Garden, was the subject of a fraudulent link that the account tweeted encouraging followers to “claim land”.

Azuki is in touch with Twitter to address the attack, according to Hoshiboy. Community manager for Azuki Emily Rose tweeted about the hack and cautioned followers not to open any links in current tweets.

As of Friday afternoon, the tweets were removed from Azuki’s Twitter account. However, Discord moderators continued to advise members not to click on the link in Azuki’s bio since it still takes them to a malicious website.

NFT collection Azuki’s previous hacks

The Garden has just been made available to owners of the popular anime-inspired profile picture (PFP) collection as a meeting venue. Azuki’s current floor price is 14.76 ETH, or around $23,600, and the project has generated 274,510 ETH, or about $4.4 million, in total transactions since its January 2022 start, according to data from the secondary market OpenSea.

Hackers have previously exploited the Azuki name and branding to deceive unsuspecting Twitter users. Azuki NFT fakes were airdropped last April after a hacker took control of the India University Grant Commission’s official Twitter account. Authorities soon recovered the account.

Hilumia recently debuted its virtual city with a fully functional toy store and arcade to mark Azuki’s one-year anniversary. Even at the interactive “Love Island” romance tournament, participants can put their love to the test! Unsurprisingly, trading activity for Hilumia increased by 86% on the day of the announcement alone, according to NFT data tracker CryptoSlam.
