Following the charity NFT auction known as “Bill Murray 1000,” on-chain analyst NFT Herder has reported that a hacker stole around $175,000 worth of ETH from Hollywood star Bill Murray’s wallet.

According to Etherscan and information provided by Murray’s team, the attack took place last week when the hacker withdrew 94% of the money from the actor’s wallet.

In addition to this, there was an effort to take some of Murray’s personal NFTs.

However, he was shielded from the worst-case situation by a wallet security team.

They accomplished this by transferring his priceless NFTs—among them Damien Hirst, Cryptopunks, Pudgy Penguins, Cool Cats, and Flower Girls—to a pair of safehouse wallets, greatly limiting the likelihood of additional heist.

800 NFTs from the collection he began were also the target of their theft attempt.

In an effort to track out the hacker and prosecute them, the actor’s crew has already filed a police case and is collaborating with Chainalysis, a crypto analytics company.

The auction’s runner-winner, Mishap72, reportedly gave 120 ETH to the Coinbase of Chive Charities in reaction to this attack to make up for what was lost.

The NFT Collection of Bill Murray

This past Thursday, Bill Murray published a book named “The Bill Murray 1000” which has 100 nonfiction stories (NFTs) about the comedian and actor.

The NFTs cover a wide range of subjects, including the day he met future President John F. Kennedy to how Hunter S. Thompson saved Bill’s life.

John Resig, the author of the book, collaborated extensively with Bill and his son to provide context for his greatest short stories. They did this while reviewing, editing, and approving each narrative.

The 100 tales NFTs each have a distinctive design that is drawn from the narrative.

There are nine more colours available for each original story/design pairing.

The NFTs, which were first offered on Coinbase, also grant users unique admission to a club that offers once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to interact with “the man, the myth, the legend.”
