Community reaction. OpenSea’s actions have drawn criticism from customers. Users are dissatisfied that a report of an NFT being stolen often appears late and without a proper investigation process, which is unfair to the customer. In some cases, such a notification appeared almost three months after the purchase. Customers demanded that the platform ensure that the process used to mark a token as stolen is transparent.

Earlier, representatives of OpenSea reported a leak of users’ personal data. This happened because an employee of the service, whose services the company used to send mailings, provided the data to a third party.
