OpenSea’s nightmarish week
BREAKING: Everyone head to https://t.co/nRpSAHivfe
and make sure all of your old listings are cancelled. There is currently an exploit on @opensea letting someone buy your NFTs for old listing prices. This is happening right now!!

What's going on:
Listings made a long time ago are resurfacing when items transfer back into lister’s wallets.

1/ WARNING: DO NOT CANCEL YOUR OS LISTINGS AS STATED IN THE EMAIL THAT OPENSEA JUST SENT OUT🚨🚨
Please FIRST transfer your NFT to a different address and cancel the listing/s on the original address BEFORE sending it back
OS just put everyone at even more risk than before🧵

So i got two emails today from @opensea about listings, and lost 15 ETH+ from exactly what their trying to prevent...

This kind of robbery hits home for reasons more than money. The @BoredApeYC that was taken from me on @opensea was part of the identity that I built. Was paired with an M1 and M2 mutant in a set I was never going to break. I haven’t slept all night.

Diem is dead
The USA cared more about Facebook Libra / Diem Stablecoin than it would ever feared Bitcoin.
The US government gives zero F'cks about El Salvador making it legal tender than FB trying to onboard 4 Billion users to cryptocurrency.
Why don't the North Koreans make it legal tender?

I've been writing hatchet jobs on the Libra project for years now because it was an outright assault on the rules based international order and led by one of the most evil people on the planet. Glad to see it being scraped in a giant fire sale.https://t.co/1Q6cBNc1eJ

I expected this to happen (and said it to Facebook executives): Diem (or Libra) was a distraction, and would fall apart as soon as FB realised the complexity of dealing with >180 different regulatory regimes for money transfers pic.twitter.com/UaM5TxU7QP
