Two days earlier, though, he listed it for 0.75 ETH instead of 75 ETH, and the NFT got sniped instantly.
The one who offered it by mishap reportedly informed CNET that it was an error and that bots sniped it prior to he might cancel the listing.

Back in August,
CryptoPotato reported that somebody offered Mutant Ape 5275 was sold for $17 instead of $54K – – a technique that many consider being blatantly obvious.
