Youtuber accused a friend of stealing nearly $1 million in Cryptocurrency

Youtuber Jianhao Tan, with nearly 5.5 million subscribers, lost about $1 million in Cryptocurrency and NFT because of his friend’s greed. Jianhao tweeted about it.

I’ve been down with Covid for the past week. But the amount of negativity I’ve been dealing with mentally, emotionally has greatly surpassed any effects of Covid. I’ve been betrayed by my partner, lost my BAYC, lost all APE, ETH and worst of all, lost a friend.

According to Jianhao, his friend stole all apecoin (APE), ether (ETH) Tokens as well as a non-exchangeable token (NFT) of the Bored Apes Yacht Club collection. Exactly which NFT is being referred to is unclear. The Singaporean youtuber added that he managed the assets through a shared wallet with a friend.

“At some point greed got the better of him. And he sold everything without my knowledge, invested in a gambling site and lost everything”
