A cryptocurrency trader mistakenly sold an EtherRock NFT at the price billions of times lower than its valuation.
On March 10th the NFT collector accidentally stated the price of the asset at the level of 444 WEI, which meant to be listed for 444 ETH (WEI is the smallest unit of the cryptocurrency Ether and equals to an eighteen-digit denomination of the currency). By the time the trader noticed the misprint (which, according to the seller’s twitter, was instantly after publishing the offer), a trading robot had already purchased the NFT asset at a knockdown price. Right after the deal, the price of the EtherRock soared to 234 ETH (more than $600K at relevant exchange rates at that time)
The unlucky trader on twitter asked the snipers to show mercy and start over. However, there was no response from the other side of the deal.
EtherRock is one of the first crypto collectible NFT-type projects that depict various rocks. There are only 100 pet rocks on the blockchain.
