The Bored Ape Yacht Club Was Briefly Delisted From Opensea After An "Error." Here's What Happened:
After a technical error at the largest NFT marketplace, panic gripped the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
Many BAYC members received an email today from Opensea that stated that their bored ape has been removed from the marketplace.
“An item you own has been delisted because it goes against our Terms of Service,” the email stated. “This means it will no longer appear on your profile or in your collection.”
Many believed that this could be a sophisticated phishing attack, but it turned out to be an internal error on Opensea's end.
The BAYC took to Twitter shortly after their collection was delisted and explained what happened.
“There was a brief OpenSea error earlier in which they mistakenly and temporarily delisted a number of Bored Apes from their platform,” the club tweeted. “The issue is now resolved with all assets showing again. We are in contact with them to ensure this doesn't happen again.”
After the error, Opensea said that they have found the root cause of this problem and that the BAYC will not be delisted again.
“Earlier today, a number of Bored Apes NFTs were briefly delisted from OpenSea due to a technical error, Opensea Support told the Bored Ape Gazette. “The issue was resolved in under ten minutes with all impacted items relisted, and we've identified the root cause to prevent this from happening again.”
The entire Bored Ape Yacht club collection is now back on Opensea!
