Last month, Seth Green’s NFT collection was stole from him. The pieces he lost include Bored Ape #8398 which had been integral in developing his upcoming show. But recently returned after being “kidnapped.”
Fred Simian NFT, the jovial and lively #8398 Bored Ape NFT, was previously in the hands of a pseudonymous collector known “Mr. Cheese.”
On Tuesday, blockchain transaction records showed Fred Simian NFT transferring from Cheese’s NFT wallet to one of Green’s wallets. The actor said, “Fred is home,” confirming that his personal NFT had been back.
The records showed that Seth Green transferred 165 Ether, which equals $297,000 dollars to DarkWing84’s (Mr. Cheese’s alias) wallet. Despite his prior threats to sue the collector. This transaction implies that he buys his NFT again for about $100,000 more than its original price.
Fred Simian’s profile still has a “suspicious activity” label on OpenSea, preventing it from being buy or sell. However, anybody can do it with other services, though.
After more than a month of dispute, should the transaction turn out to be exactly as it appears. The whole ordeal will be over.
The entire incident begin when Seth Green’s NFT collection was stole when he fell for a phishing scam. The show White House Tavern. Which feature characters from these items and would have focuse on Fred Simian. Who play an important role. It Was halt due to this unforeseen turn of events and had to hit the brakes on production.
Seth Green maintain he never lost the IP rights to Fred despite the NFT getting stole. However, without any legal precedent with new technology. It left him in a very gray area of law and caused many problems for himself as well as others. Also involved who were trying to take action against phishing scams.
I bought that ape in July 2021 and have spent the last several months developing and exploiting the IP. Which is to make it into the star of this show. Said Green last month. Then days before – his name is Fred, by the way – days before he’s set to make his world debut, he’s literally kidnnap.
The producer and actor can now return to work on their show without being worrying about more legal problems now that Fred Simian NFT has return to his wallet.
