The British Army has apologized after its Twitter and YouTube accounts were compromised by entities that used them to promote NFTs.
As recorded by The Wayback Machine, the @BritishArmy Twitter feed hosted content promoting non-fungible tokens described thusly: "The Anomalies is a collection of special Possessed 1/1s".
According to Web3-watcher Web3 is going just great, the British Army YouTube account was taken over at the same time as the Twitter takedown. The YouTube takeover replaced the legit account with fake logos resembling those used by an investment management firm and filled it with more crypto boosterism – namely a video that cut an old chat between Elon Musk and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey into a new and misleading narrative.
