OpenSea has lauched OpenSea Pro and as a thank you some users are receiving free nfts.
These NFTs are free to mint and are currently selling for about 0.06 eth ($118.00 ) so of course people are putting up offers and trying to trade them.
Unfortunately for one Trader is seems he fat fingered the amount and accidentally put an offer for100 eth.
you can see the transaction here
and I know what you guys are thinking it was a wash trade but this was an open offer that could have been accepted by anybody, so it would be a pretty big risk hoping you were faster than anybody else looking at the offers at that moment.

and here I am, thinking about selling my Drip Squad for 0.0003
yearly fortune already used (will be available in another year)
Fat fingers, the number one road block to crypto mass adoption =)
You don’t see this everyday… i hope the seller returns at least some of the Ethereum.
The seller accidentally accepted the 100eth bid too.
How are this people allowed to have so much money and be that dumb lol
Someone made 100 ETH from a big standard NFT. Lucky.
Some people are living a very different life than me
Fat fingered or money laundering? It’s very sus…
That’s a fun ethical question.
If you’re the seller, how much of the 100 ETH do you return?
I probably offer to give him back 95. If he bitches, I keep it all.
Most expensive free picture ever paid
Reasons why crypto is not ready for mainstream adoption
100 ETH for a free picture?
F to pay respects
Thanks for making me feel like less of a dumbass for my own crypto fuck-ups.
he just paid the stupid tax
He is not a “pro” after all.
Either that or it’s some weird farming technique.
That’s a fucking lot of money to just fat finger
That’s one expensive mistake
Yeah, I’m pretty sure Crypto will replace traditional money any day now…
I wish someone bids high eth into my reddit free avatars /s
Pretty expensive mistake to make
Buyer accidentally bids 100 ETH on free NFT and seller accidentally accepts it!!
You know someone’s taking an unplanned vacation this year!
Atleast he will be able to claim it as capital loss. Better than nothing I guess
To be honest I would probably return ETH minus 5-10%
Both parties satisfied and can sleep well at night
Something a member of r/cc would do, fess up which one of you was it?
I’d feel bad for the guy though if it was me and offer it them back
I’m going to say this was a philanthropic donation. Probably invested in Eth very early and just wanted to share the wealth. 😝
Expensive lesson indeed😬
This thing feels at some points terrible.
I tried it half of the day and a lot of errors happend.
Some failed transactions and I managed to buy the wrong NFT – a lot of transactions made it hard to use it, at some point the “buy now” button just speeds away under your curser.
Enough internet for the day guys. I’m done i guess.
Damn, I was hoping this was a free Reddit avatar. Can never have enough gen 3 exposure
Must feel like winning the lottery for the seller
The question is why would want I to buy a free NFT at all?
That buyer looking at his hot wallet wondering where 190K worth of ETH just went…
Maybe he’s just tax harvesting. 😉
Wow, talk about a rookie mistake! That NFT trader just threw away a fortune. Reminds me of the time I accidentally deleted my entire hard drive.
I read the title of the article and went straight to check my wallet, sadly no accidental money there 🙁
“Accidentally” yeah sure
I have some free NFTs and I’ll sell them for only 10 ETH each. Hit me up.
100 eth to him is chump change
Option 1. Return all the eth
Option 2. Return most but keep some
Option 3. Shut down your opensea account, transfer it out of your hot wallet through a series of intermediary wallets and pretend like you don’t exist.
I’m thinking I do #2….but sitting here trying to figure out the most foolproof way of doing #3 lol
Wow, talk about a rookie mistake! Maybe this trader should stick to buying NFTs instead of bidding on them.
Holy crap I think I’d just retire from crypto forever if that sort of luck happened for me
I probably would’ve not checked my opensea, forgot, and missed out on 100eth
This guy has got to be either moving money between accounts, paying the other for something else entirely, or laundering money
Hoping this person has many eth to spare.
Lucky I don’t have that kind of eth to make that big a mistake, ouch
