OpenSea delisted BAYC for a hot minute

Last night OpenSea delisted Bored Ape NFTs for a few hours, a move that resulted in much consternation and gnashing of NFT teeth.
According to Twitter user @economist, BAYC NFTs appeared to be disabled on OpenSea. This meant they could not be sold or even accessed on the site but that they were still accessible via blockchain wallets.
“An item you own has been delisted because it goes against our Terms of Service,” wrote the company. “This means it will no longer appear on your profile or in your collections.
“Delisting an item on OpenSea does not remove it from your wallet. It remains on the blockchain and you can still transfer and share it in other places. You can see what’s in your wallet on Etherscan.”
The error happened after a number of hacks appeared to target OpenSea users including a phishing attack using the company’s own email list and Discord links sent to users who might have clicked them unwittingly. The result? OpenSea locked things down, resulting in a Bored Apes ban. The company outlined the issue in a blog post.
“There was a brief OpenSea error earlier in which they mistakenly and temporarily delisted a number of Bored Apes from their platform. The issue is now resolved with all assets showing again. We are in contact with them to ensure this doesn’t happen again,” the BAYC team wrote.
