In a major red flag, the site issued a warning to investors that holders of the coin aren’t able to sell it on Pancakeswap, a popular decentralized exchange. “We have received multiple reports that the website and socials are no longer functional & the users are not able to sell this token in Pancakeswap,” CoinMarketCap said. They also warned investors in the coin with the SQUID ticker to do their own due diligence and exercise extreme caution and that the project, while clearly inspired by the Netflix show of the same name, is not affiliated with the company that owns its intelectual rights. In another red flag tied to the crypto, the now-deleted white paper for the project included grammatical errors which has been a bad sign in previous scam cases. The collapse in value of the crypto came hours after Twitter flagged accounts associated with the crypto as suspicious and restricted access to them. It’s not clear exactly what happened to the crypto, but traders speculated on social media that it was a classic so-called rug-pull scam in which the developers of a crypto abandon the project and steal the funds invested in it. According to CoinDesk, the developers behind the project said Monday on their official Telegram channel that they didn’t want to continue running the project due to the stress of dealing with hackers. 00:00 Intro 00:54 Warning flags 01:50 Twitter closed 02:35 Rug-pull? 03:34 Recap 📊 Join our global trading community on Telegram.
