As detailed by journalist Zach Bussey on Twitter (thanks, Kotaku), the hacked Discord bot was used to advertise a limited amount of NFTs, with each one “selling” for one Solana (around £133) each.This was of course a scam, and there were no NFTs being sold – victims were simply handing their money over for nothing.
