Q. I believe we all experience this once or twice… Let’s share our experiences!.
What are the various types of rug pulls?
There are three main types of rug pulls in crypto: liquidity stealing, limiting sell orders and dumping.
Liquidity stealing:- occurs when token creators withdraw all the coins from the liquidity pool. Doing so removes all the value injected into the currency by investors, driving its price down to zero.
Limiting sell orders:- In this situation, the developer codes the tokens so that they’re the only party that is able to sell them.
Dumping:- occurs when developers quickly sell off their own large supply of tokens. Doing so drives down the price of the coin and leaves remaining investors holding worthless tokens.
This usually occurs after big promotion on social media that result in spike and sell-off are known as a Pump-and-Dump Scheme.
