ApeCoin is an ERC-20 governance and utility token used to empower decentralized community building at the forefront of web3.

Last month, we saw a similar ApeCoin Phishing Link Scam. Apecoin Team at that time has tweeted and advised its users to stay safe from these scams. So Just after Apecoin’s official Airdrop, there was a Flashloan Attack. Attacker firstly arbitraged about 60,564 Ape tokens, worth about $400,000. Then Attacker borrowed BAYC tokens and then redeemed them to get BAYC NFTs. Then he used BAYC NFTs to claim the AirDrop APE token. So Apecoin is the primary target for attackers and scammers. So users should be more careful.
We will advise our readers not to click on any suspicious links to buy crypto and NFTs. Phishing Link cases are increasing nowadays, so please stay alert and always check official links.
