PlaySide Studios (ASX:PLY) shares were down about 15% at 3.30pm.

The Aussie gaming studio says a technical glitch left its big time non-fungible tokens sold for whatever ‘minimal consideration’ is supposed to mean.

The downer follows PLY’s $8.5m sale of 7777 Beans NFTs, based on some cartoon characters from the ‘Dumb Ways to Die’ game.

PlaySide says there won’t be any long-term impacts from this issue nor will there be any material change to revenues earned from the original mint, given the strong secondary market volume.
