Belarusian Cyber Partisans, a decentralized anonymous hacktivist collective established in 2020, has attempted to sell non-fungible token (NFT) of a stolen Belarusian leader’s passport.

According to the tweet thread by Cyber Partisans, the hacktivist group has acquired the passports of all Belarus residents, including President Aleksandr Lukashenko

The collective then took the passports of the president and other Belarusian governmental figures and turned them into NFTs. Apart from Lukashenko’s passport, the Cyber Partisans have also created NFTs of a press secretary for the president Natalia Eismant, former head of the country’s Central Election Commission Lidia Yermoshina, and the deputy head of the Belarusian KGB Ivan Tertel passports.

The digital collectibles were posted on Lukashenko’s birthday, August 30th, on the OpeanSea marketplace

However, the NFTs were available on the OpenSea marketplace for less than 24 hours. According to the OpenSea spokesperson: 

OpenSea’s Terms of Service prohibit doxxing and revealing personal identifying information about another person without their consent. We enforce our policy in various ways, including disabling buying and selling on violating content, delisting, and in some instances, banning accounts — as was the case in this instance.

While the Cyber Partisans are searching for other alternatives to sell these NFTs, some Twitter users showed their skepticism, claiming that passports are fake. According to users, there are typos on the words “passport” and “Aleksandr”.

However, Cyber Partisans clapped back to these users by sharing a screenshot of the passport database information

Belarusian Cyber Partisans have reportedly stolen immense amounts of data, including the history of emergency calls, police CCTV footage, and the work history of individual officers, to show their resistance to the regime.
