UFC Strike Halts Pack Drops After Exploit
UFC Strike is pausing pack drops for October and sending credit to those who participated in 10 pack drops after freezing accounts belonging to a user who allegedly exploited those drops.
The Dapper-led project said the "bug" that allowed a user to pull an "abnormal amount of highly sought-after NFTs" from packs "has been identified and fixed."
UFC Strike said the exploit impacted its "technology" and doesn't apply to other Dapper products such as NBA Top Shot and NFL ALL DAY.
The announcement came after a Sept. 30 announcement that the platform was looking into "reports of suspicious activity" and had frozen a handful of accounts. No further information was given.
There are discussions in the UFC Strike Discord about the suspected user pulling nine Champion moments in as many packs.
UFC Strike wouldn't confirm the amount of rare NFTs collected, though a thread from Twitter user ZukCollections showed a user purchasing four packs and pulling rare NFTs in each pack.
