If the losses from the market crash were not enough, some holders are shooting themselves in the foot. Avid NFT collector and BAYC holder, who goes by nft_metaman, sold his Ape #3158 for just 10 ETH or less than $20,000. The sale resulted in a loss of 78 ETH or over $140,000 for him.

According to the former owner, he made a mistake and wanted to list it for 102 ETH.

“I was lowering the price on the ape from 130 to 105 – still think the warning was there but moved quickly… It’s definitely my fault,” 

he wrote on his Twitter handle.

While this unfortunate incident, many holders are selling their BAYC tokens for losses within months of acquiring them. If the crypto market does not regain losses soon, more people will dump their blue-chip NFTs to secure.
