Scam Artists

Even though there are great projects out there, many meme coins are often scams.

In most cases, a honeypot or rug pull is more likely. A honeypot is a type of scam that lures investors into a coin, but prevents them from selling.

A rug pull is a type of scam where developers abandon a project and take their investors' money.

Honeypot scams bait investors with a “pot of cryptocurrency” or the promise of big returns. 

Then, rookie investors fall for the trick and transfer cryptocurrency to the scammer’s wallet.

By the time they realize it's scam, their crypto is gone.

Rug pulls thrive on DEXs because these types of exchanges allow users to list tokens for free and without audit.

Rug pull coin prices usually shoot up fast. It could move from 0 to 100X in a day. This trick is designed to drive FOMO so more newbies will invest in the token.
