Another NFT Rug Pull: ‘Evolved Apes’ Creator Disappears with $2.7M

·1 min read

BeInCrypto –

Evil Ape, the creator of the Evolved Apes NFTs, has seemingly stolen $2.7 million worth of ETH from investors. The individual’s Twitter account and website have both gone offline.

It appears that the creator of the popular Evolved Apes NFT series has absconded with $2.7 million worth of investor funds. “Evil Ape,” the pseudonym of the creator, is no longer on social media platforms, and the website has also gone offline.

The Evolved Apes series is a collection of 10,000 NFTs “trapped inside a lawless land,” where only the strongest of apes will survive in a survival of the fittest. It was envisioned as a fighting game, though, that certainly hasn’t come to fruition.
