Collector Loses $1 Million After Incorrectly Listing NFT

An NFT collector has been left with almost nothing after accidentally selling a picture of a rock worth $1.2 million, for the wrong cryptocurrency.

The collector, known as dino_dealer on Twitter, shared their misfortune on social media.

“How's your week?,” they said.

“Mine? I just erroneously listed @etherrock #44 for 444 wei instead of 444 eth.

“Bot sniped it in the same block and trying to flip for 234 eth.”

Wei and eth (Ether) refer to the cryptocurrencies the person was selling it for.

444 Eth is worth roughly $1.2 million, but 444 Wei is worth just $0.0012.

The mistake means the collector has possibly lost more than $1 million had the picture of the rock sold.

The collector went on to make fun of his mistake in a later tweet.

“Crypto customer service? Hello. Can I make a reversal request?” He joked.

Unfortunately the collector is unlikely to get his NFT back, as it was bought by a bot, which is a tool used to quickly buy NFTs as soon as they hit the market.
