As a token born based on the inspiration of Netflix’s TV series, SQUID will also have a total of 6 levels for investors to participate in, with a large bonus for the last winning player.

However, players need to buy a certain amount of SQUID to participate or restart if they lose, with “fees” ranging from 650 – 15,000 tokens. 10% of the tokens from this fee will be sent to the SQUID development team, while the remaining 90% will make up a huge prize for the winner.

According to CoinTelegraph, PancakeSwap is currently the only exchange where users can make SQUID investments. This token is currently trading at 35.58 USD at the time of writing, among the top growth coins/tokens on Coinmarketcap, with daily trading volume at 6-7 million USD.

Top growth but signs of a scam?

In the context of SQUID’s amazing growth, the news that users cannot sell this token has raised many doubts from the crypto community. Accordingly, many investors have assumed that SQUID could be a scam.

Accordingly, a Twitter user named Crypto Tyrion discovered the identity of the founding team of SQUID extremely shady. These people don’t even have LinkedIn accounts. Normally, the profile on LinkedIN allows investors to ‘scan’ the background of the development team, thereby assessing the credibility of the project. Also according to Crypto Tyrion, the team behind SQUID also blocked comments on Twitter.

“Pull Rug 100%,” Crypto Tyrion asserts. In the cryptocurrency market, Rug Pull is a term that refers to the act of withdrawing all investors’ capital and running away. This action usually occurs on decentralized platforms when a certain token is drained of liquidity and is no longer valid for exchange, causing great damage to investors who previously purchased the token.

Some investors also pointed to problems in the SQUID’s white paper, including grammatical errors, typos, and “unverifiable” statements. According to the popular website authority testing website Scamadviser, SQUID’s website is classified as “suspicious”, with a confidence score of 45 out of 100.

He also emphasized that CoinGecko is not a partner of the Squid Game token, as mentioned on their website: “This is certainly not true and we are neither a partner nor related to Squid Game. “.

Netflix itself also asserts that it is not related to SQUID and requires users to be absolutely careful when investing in this token.

Meanwhile, a warning article published by Coinmarketcap on October 29 emphasized that the rapid growth of SQUIDs may lead to a situation where it is difficult for players to play the game Play-to-Earn to meet the requirements. hold at least a certain amount of tokens. For example, in the final level, players who want to participate are required to hold a minimum of 15000 SQUID tokens, which is more than 525,000 USD at the time of writing – a number that few investors can afford.
