It would be difficult to miss.
What makes this particular transaction extra suspicious is that the seller (cchan.eth) alsosold a Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT (#11670)at the same time for 25 DAI ($25). Again, that’s dramatically lower than the floor price or the cheapest available Mutant Ape on a marketplace, which is currently at 22.8 ETH (over $76,000).
So while it’s possible that someone made a mistake and sold a pair of NFTs for at least $461,000 less than their market value, it could also be the result of some kind of exploit.
OpenSea recently dealt with anexploit regarding inactive marketplace listingsthat had not automatically expired, and doled out millions of dollars to compensate victims. In another recent situation, OpenSeablamed an external phishing attackwhen users saw NFTs in their respective wallets sold without their express permission.

Why is BAYC so expensive?
One of the top-selling NFT series by Yuga Labs, BAYC’s avatars’ value depends on the number of unique features they have and how many apes share these characteristics. For example, Bored Ape YC #7495 is one of the rarest apes, with a rarity score of 364.42.
Its seven traits are an aquamarine background, a dagger in its mouth, a cross earring, a cyborg eye, Dmt fur, a wool turtleneck and an Irish boho hat.
