Blockchain researchers note the “incredible diligence” of the developers of scam dubious coins. And they note that every day several new cryptocurrencies are released from the address scammer.
One scammer launched 114 scam meme cryptocurrencies in the past 45 days, a blockchain researcher under a nickname ZachXBT reported on Twitter. According to him, each time the funds received as a result of the fraudulent scheme were sent to the same address.
“I suspect that there are even more of them [issued cryptocurrencies]. These are just the ones sent to the same address,” ZachXBT added.
He attached a diagram that shows the “scam tokens” with names. Which refer to famous brands, such as KingKong, BBC, TrumpMind, Arbitreum, Mozilla, SpeechAI, PEPAPIG, are redirected to one address on the Coinbase exchange.
Users on social media noted that the scammers are acting like “criminal geniuses,” sending funds to a large centralized exchange, thereby giving themselves away. ZachXBT suggested that Coinbase had not detected the fraud because the transfers were coming in small amounts.
On April 27, a social network user under the pseudonym Guru also reported another similar case. In doing so, pointing to the address of a cryptocurrency wallet, which allegedly launched 2-5 memcoins daily for almost two years in a row.
“These developers have an incredible work ethic. Make sure you take note of their address on Etherscan. So you don’t fill their pockets with your money. Absolute insanity,” he wrote.
Our experts point out that scammers take advantage of the fact that meme tokens are popular in the cryptocurrency community. And in doing so, despite the fact that they do not bear any practical benefit. For example, new meme coins were launched in mid-April. Which are associated with famous Internet memes – Pepe the frog and Wojak the character. Their value rose by hundreds of percent after the launch. And now dozens of projects are launched every day that use PEPE, etc. in the name. Be careful 99% of these projects will be shut down within days of launch.
