How to Identify a Legitimate Gamester Ape
First you need to check the mint date. Gamester Apes were minted on November 12, 2021-November 13, 2021. Any dates other than this, is a forgery. Below is an example of a fake listing, as the date is not within the minting window. Notice, there are also reports of fraud for this particular listing
November 12 -13 2021 are the only legitimate mint dates.
Second, when you scroll down, check Blockchain details for contract address information and that token IDs match as well. Below is an example of a legitimate listing. Notice Token IDs match each other and the Contract Address is correct.
The only proper contract address is: 0x4bd2a30435e6624CcDee4C60229250A84a2E4cD6
Contract Address, Token ID and Attribute description are key to detecting fakes.
Attribute data will be shown on legitimate Gamesters, and will not for fakes.
So while we really would prefer as many to wait for the officially verified BAS Marketplace on Pancake swap, as long as the contract address matches: 0x4bd2a30435e6624CcDee4C60229250A84a2E4cD6 and the Token IDs are the same, you can feel confident you are purchasing a legitimate Gamester.
