Singapore High Court Injunction Blocks Sale and Transfer of rare NFT BAYC #2162
On May 13, the Singapore High Court gave an order forestalling the sale of an rare Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT.
The Singaporean man has won a court order to stop any potential sale and possession move of a non-fungible token (NFT) that was recently claimed by him.
The order, gave by the Singapore High Court last Friday, is likewise supposed to be the primary in Asia - as well as universally for a simply commercial dispute - to safeguard a NFT. Besides, the Bore Ape being referred to for its especially rare attributes.
The debate revolves around a loan understanding between a Singaporean NFT investor (petitioner) and a pseudonymous character (litigant). While the Singaporean man's personality was redacted, an inquiry on the Singapore Court's site uncovers it as Janesh Rajkumar. In the mean time, the personality of "chefpierre" is expressed to be "unknown" in both court records and on the site.
In a nutshell, Janesh is trying to repossess the BAYC #2162 NFT. He had involved it as insurance for a loan from "chefpierre." Moreover, that's what he guarantees "chefpierre" had taken it from him improperly and that he is the legitimate owner.
With a freezing order, Janesh needs to urge "chefpierre" to acknowledge reimbursement of the loan and return the NFT. In fact, it is the “only one wearing a beanie and has a jovial expression.” Also, “it was a ‘virgin ape’ which has not been fed with mutant serum.”
Law office Withers KhattarWong, which addresses Mr Janesh, said in a public statement gave on May 18 that the High Court's order perceives NFTs as a asset.
In addition, the directive follows the UK Court's decision, which perceived NFTs as "private property." Accordingly, the court conceded an order to freeze two taken Boss Beauties NFTs.
