Harry.ETH, a security researcher from MetaMask/MyCrypto, tweeted that “Beeple’s Twitter account has been compromised (ATO) to post a phishing website to steal funds.”

It appeared that the victims had lost 35 ETH today, so far, valued at about $71,000.

BEEPLE’s account was hacked to share a fake link to an “official raffle entry,” and Twitter users were warning others not to click on it as some said their wallets had been drained of ETH.

As The Block previously reported, Louis Vuitton commissioned BEEPLE for non-fungible token (NFT) art as rewards for a raffle and game called Louis: The Game.

BEEPLE has about 672,000 Twitter followers, his page says. Last year BEEPLE sold an NFT through an auction for a record $69 million.
