Netacea Quarterly Index: Top 5 Scalper Bot Targets of Q3 2021


Article Contents

    Netacea’s Threat Research team investigated the top five items targeted by scalper bots from July to September 2021.

    The research revealed many of the same trends observed in Q2 (April to June 2021), including video game equipment and designer items targeted aggressively by scalpers. However, specific items targeted by bots continue to change to mirror the latest “hot drops”, while the rise in popularity of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) sees a new entry to the list in Q3, and cryptomining continues to steer the gaming/scalper landscape.

    This quarter, the team also made predictions on the top items set to be targeted by scalpers in the run up to, and during, Black Friday weekend and Christmas 2021.
