SafeMoon is the latest kid on the block making lots of money for cryptocurrency traders. SafeMoon which is only a few weeks old launched in March 2021 saw itself doing high percentage growth with over one million users.

The coin since its launch shot to the moon with up to 200%, what that means is that if you had bought $500 worth when it was launched, you would have made $100,000 when it went up.

SafeMoon has been likened to be the new dogecoin reasons cause of the mad increase and the true nature of the coin’s project. Weeks back Dogecoin value went up by 6,000 percent and the intrinsic value of the coin is not actually because of the problems their invention solves (that’s if they solve any at all) but on social media frenzy and memes sharing.

In as much as, we would like to think of SafeMoon as just any other cryptocurrencies we have on ground, with the blockchain which serves as a public ledger for all transactions and decentralized from any government, financial sector, or persons.

But is it? SafeMoon is a De-Fi Token built on the Binance Smart Chain.

Another interesting feature of SafeMoon is a strategy the people behind it choose to make sure token owners holds the tokens is the 10% fee they charge one when they choose to sell the token; Half of this fee is being given back to all other owners who still hold theirs and the remaining half of is burnt during the transaction.

Since SafeMoon launch and the whole social media frenzy and massive adoption by lots of people making it explode in high-value weeks ago. So many controversies have followed with people, cryptocurrency influencers calling it a scam, a Ponzi scheme, another rug pull to happen. Here are some of them;

You should also know that SafeMoon like some other altcoins Dogecoin is referred to as ‘ shitcoins ’. These are coins whose demand, value increase are as a result of people's demand for them like commodity assets, social media frenzy, hype, price speculation, etc but not purely on the financial or societal problem they tend to solve.

Imagine something not having any prominent problem in the real world it is to solve but having such tremendous growth increase and massive user adoption. One should tread with caution when it comes to investing in such altcoins ‘ shitcoins ’ as they could make you money but with danger lurking around. Don’t invest an amount you are not willing to lose to put yourself in a safe spot in case things eventually go down south.
