Tom Holland’s X Account Hacked to Promote Crypto Scam

Tom Holland'S X Account Hacked

An imposter allegedly announced the Spider-Man star’s “Spiderverse” launch in collaboration with Binance, a worldwide cryptocurrency exchange, on the account, which has over 7 million followers. In addition to promoting the fake SPIDER cryptocurrency and Spiderverse NFTs, the hijacked account linked to a fake website that claimed early access to the products. Early screenshots revealed an unknown man’s selfie on the actor’s X page, adding to the suspicion of a hack.

Tom Holland'S X Account Hacked

The post, since removed, displayed the suspected hacker’s inverted face, his mask pulled down to his chin. The description of the post by the possibly hacker, who may have curly hair, read, “Would u kiss me while I hang from my web xxx?” a reference to the famous upside-down kiss from the original Spider-Man film starring Tobey Maguire.

He deleted the post after it was pinned to his profile. Furthermore, the timing of this break is perfect, because on April 15, select theaters will show Sam Raimi’s 2002 film again.

Following the event, a swarm of posts from confused fans ensued. Others took advantage of the strange turn of events to make fun of Holland, while others were relieved that he hadn’t actually supported cryptocurrency.

“How do you hack Tom Holland’s Twitter account and make the stupidest tweets ever instead of having ur chance to fake tease Spider-Man 4 and go crazy?” was one of several memes that sprung up online as fans seized the opportunity to mock the circumstances.

Others, however, were merely delighted to learn that the crypto plan had spared them the loss of their beloved webslinger.  Someone wrote online: “okay nvm tom holland was hacked he is redeemed really thought we lost another man to disappointment!”

Marvel’s Venture into Web3: Spider-Man NFTs

Even though Holland’s “Spiderverse” article is obviously not real, Marvel has tested the waters of web3.

American movie theater company AMC and Sony Pictures partnered to make thousands of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) available to anyone who bought early tickets to Holland’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home” in late 2021. It became a huge success, earning over $1.9 billion at the box office. The NFT ploy helped propel AMC to its second-highest ever single-day ticket sales.

Before then, VeVe, an NFT company based in New Zealand, had partnered with Marvel to offer NFTs featuring Spider-Man. VeVe, one of the NFTs, published the original Marvel comic book in 1939. X-Men, Spider-Man, and other Marvel heroes appeared in NFT comics produced earlier this year by VeVe, an Ethereum-powered digital collectibles platform.
