The Crypto world is full of opportunities and dangers as well. As an investor, trader or holder, you should take care of your cyber security. Robi is here to warn you about scam tokens and provide you with tools that will help you to handle the fraud.
What Scam token is?
A scam token is a cryptocurrency that is developed and launched for the purpose of stealing assets. About 100 tokens are created daily and some might be a trap. So there is a high risk of being deceived.
❗Biswap is a DEX which means openness and opportunity to launch liquidity to any token on the platform. So you should be aware of scams and avoid suspicious cryptocurrency.
What’s the Danger? | Stay Away from Suspicious Tokens!
There are many vehicles through which scam tokens can be used. Let’s overview a few of them to be aware and prepared.
A rug pull is a common scheme on DeFi that entails unexpectedly removing liquidity from the project.
Scammers create a new token and launch a liquidity pool, usually on the DEX. Often scam tokens may be put into a liquidity pool paired with another token like ETH or BNB, or they may be sold in an IDO. Token creators maintain a significant share of the total supply once the token launches. And when a token has attracted enough investment, scammers sell everything, making a decent profit and leaving other holders with worthless tokens.
As you can guess from the name, this scheme is characterized by attractiveness for investors. But you should remember that all that glitters is not gold.
As you know, cryptocurrencies are volatile, and price instability is a usual phenomenon. But more suspicious when a new token only goes up, and nobody seems to be selling it. It might be a signal that a honeypot scam is going on.
The trick is that the token’s smart contract allows only one wallet to sell them. And this wallet is controlled by scammers. So you can’t trade this token, and eventually, you will lose your investments.
Once again, we have a very attractive bait. Who refuses free tokens? But if I say they are malicious.
Scam airdrops make people think they have received tokens worth thousands of dollars. But, in fact, they can’t be traded on exchanges as there’s no liquidity. This scam aims to lure you to a shady website to connect your wallet and approve access to a malicious smart contract. After that, scammers can withdraw funds directly from your wallet.
How to identify Scam Tokens | Use Tips & Instruments!
It is important to understand that you take responsibility for your assets. For this reason, you should analyze all risks and check all possible aspects before investing in the token.
Following check steps will help you distinguish scam tokens from valuable ones without a 100% guarantee.
Check the Token’s Price History
If crypto is new and has experienced a huge price hike in a few hours or days, it might be a red flag. This fact does not mean that the crypto has a long-term promise, but it could indicate that the token will soon plummet or even become worthless under the scam scheme.
Analyze Token Distribution
Take a look at the distributed ledger or transaction history of the token. If any holder keeps more than half of the circulating supply, especially when it’s a new token, it might be a scam. Cybercriminals often hold a huge portion of scam tokens to sell back a massive share of the supply and make a big profit.
Make a White Paper Research
Whitepaper documents might be one of the trust indicators. Some projects’ white papers are incredibly detailed and give the investors a thorough idea of the plans, goals, and strategy according to the particular token. In contrast, scam projects would rather sidestep their token’s whitepaper as they don’t want to waste time on this.
Use third-party analysis tools
Here are a few services that help to identify the scam. We highly recommend scanning the token through multiple websites to increase the accuracy of the verification.
