It was a typing error that wiped out more than $ 250,000.

It happened in an instant in which the owner of a work of art that does not exist physically, but only in digital form, “ate” two digits.

The piece is called “Bored Ape # 3,547” (boring monkey # 3,547, in Spanish), which is part of the new genre of art NFT, the acronym in English for ‘non-fungible token’.

Its owner decided to put it up for sale, but offered it for US $ 3,000 instead of US $ 300,000, its approximate value.
