>> No.29577204

Some really ultimate shit coin I'm pretty sure mods even banned being typed on here because of the shilling around it at the time - called rf...BTC (no dots).

It was an absolute text book pump and dump, from launch at 0.003 to 0.09 in half a day, then back to 0.003 again within the next 24 hours. Luckily I sold at a decent time and actually made good profit - it was my very first shitcoin and I accidentally executed buy/sell time near enough perfectly, sold at like 0.82 or something and made more than a 10,000% return. I remember I posted the all time graph in their telegram after the dump with no additional context and they banned me at the speed of light, lmao. It was a real lesson learned and a very textbook rug.

I feel kinda bad because I later realised that I had rode the wave with the scammers and had also accidentally scammed people too by proxy. And also because some of the community has now inherited the coin and is trying to build some game affiliated to the coin to save it or some dumb shit I really have no idea how that works or is remotely useful for anything but yeah, it is never seeing the light of day again. Still holding about $20 in it for absolutely no reason

Was doing good, but got rugged for small amounts with VICE and SODA. Seemed slightly ruggy, but I took a chance. To completely coinfess, I shilled them a bit here, but at least let people know they were probably rugs and to take profits. Still feels bad. No more shitcoins.

>> No.29579845

Following this, if I can give some advice to people - if you join the telegram of a shitcoin and it has like 5-10 guys who are just spamming gifs over and over, it's very probable that it's a scam and those guys are who are behind it. This coins telegram had 5-10 guys who would do nothing but spam gifs to push legitimate questions out of the chat and they were non-stop circle jerking about how it's going to moon and etc etc. It was pretty clearly an organised effort to keep the gifs being spammed as much as possible and keep the 'hype' up. As soon as the rug happened they all disappeared. Big red flag to watch out for

probit doesn't have as much liquidity, but makes it easier to trade tokens without the gas fees.

here's another RUG. this one was called xstable. this is how i learned that twitter influencer "Calls" are code for "i'm going to dump on you". And that's exactly what happened on the following day. SpiderCrypto IMMEDIATELY dumped on everyone, because he's a complete bag of shit. And "rebase" tokens don't do shit.

by the glory of god, i instinctually sold at that dead cat bounce of $2.63 cents. RiP to the other holders.

Rubic. Didn’t lose much luckily and swapped it into fantom.

You should exit Fantom soon as well, when Afghanistan is dumping its bags
