About half of the presales based on Solana turned out to be scams

More than 40% of projects in the Solana ecosystem stopped further development a month after the presale. This conclusion was reached by independent on-chain analyst ZachXBT.

The expert studied 27 projects that raised more than 655,000 SOL during the pre-sale of tokens. 12 of them were related to fraud.

It is reported that their creators raised 180,650 SOL (about $26.7 million). After that, they stopped supporting the projects and did not return their assets to users.

According to ZachXBT, the LIKE memcoin collected the most funds – 52,220 SOL, which is about $8 million. The founder of the project under the pseudonym pokeee.eth launched the LIKE token on March 17, 2024 with a market capitalization of $577 million. However, in the first 8 hours of trading, the value of the memcoin fell by more than 90%, the source claims.

The second largest project was MOONKE, launched on March 20 by a user under the pseudonym RockyXBT. In a matter of hours, the asset collapsed by more than 99%.

Note that traders’ enthusiasm for memcoins on the Solana network has decreased in recent weeks. Since April 1, the value of most tokens, including Dogwifhat (WIF), has dropped significantly.
