OpenSea Listing Alerts Implemented After Exploit

The NFT marketplace giant, OpenSea, discovered a major exploit within the marketplace’s trading systems. Now, Opensea has created listing alerts and implemented several tools to identify erroneous sales orders. Users can quickly check their NFTs immediately for any undisclosed transactions.

The transaction errors were caused by members failing to cancel open listings because of the high gas prices. Later, the members would transfer the NFT from their wallets to another blockchain address. However, the sales order was still active in the background when the NFT returns to its original location. Unscrupulous traders were able to find the NFT items and purchase them, making a profit.

OpenSea will soon offer an additional tab called “listings” on its dashboard that allows members to view all active orders. The open orders will be displayed by a simple dropdown menu. The two options indicate “active” and “inactive” listings. Users can then scan the entries for errors and cancel any unwanted listings.


OpenSea has reimbursed 750 Ethereum (or, $1.8 million dollars) to users who accidentally sold valuable NFTs below their going market rate due to the “inactive listings” exploit.
