Solana’s SLERF Token Witnesses Dramatic Price Surge and Subsequent Plummet

Solana’s SLERF token experienced a whirlwind of activity, characterized by a rapid price surge followed by a steep decline, leaving investors and traders reeling from the volatility.

According to on-chain reports from Lookonchain, an address identified as 5Jha8h…jmbzxd entered the market with a bold move, purchasing 69.74 million SLERF tokens at the opening for 9,894 SOL, equivalent to $1.98 million. 

In a remarkable turnaround, the address swiftly sold the tokens for 25,001 SOL in less than 12 minutes, generating a profit of 15,107 SOL, approximately $3.02 million. This impressive feat occurred as the price of SLERF surged by more than 30 times within an hour of trading initiation.

Another significant player, a whale holding 158,786 SOL valued at $32 million, made an entry into the SLERF market by investing 3,024 SOL, equivalent to $606,000, to acquire 1.7 million SLERF tokens at $0.35 each. Notably, this transaction marked the first token purchase for the whale wallet.

SLERF Developer Burning Blunder Results To Many Heartbreaks In The Ecosystem

However, the euphoria surrounding SLERF was short-lived as the token’s price suddenly plummeted by over 18%.

Reports emerged indicating that the Solana Memecoin project attributed this downturn to the burning of all liquidity pool (LP) and airdrop tokens due to an inadvertent operation error. Furthermore, the project clarified that new tokens cannot be minted as the minting permission has been revoked.

The repercussions of this development are significant, particularly for pre-sale investors who contributed over 50,000 SOL and $10 million to the project.

With the announcement that pre-sale investors will neither receive tokens nor SOL refunds, the situation has intensified, leaving stakeholders grappling with the aftermath of the token’s volatile trajectory.

As investors assess the implications and ramifications of SLERF’s rollercoaster ride, the incident underscores the inherent risks associated with trading in the cryptocurrency market, emphasizing the importance of due diligence and risk management strategies.
