Hello people, had an idea about doing the experiment of checking top 10 coins right now on the front page of the /r/CrytoMoonShots with CoinSniffer.
#What is Token Sniffer?
It is a site that has the idea of trying to help people spot shitty, rugpull tokens. The functionality is pretty easy, you copy the contract of the token you are going to sniff and copy paste it in the search bar of the site, of which you will get a “small test” results that show you the following info
* Is it a verified contract source? This tells you that someone did register and that the code of the contract will be what is being deployed into the blockchain.
* No prior similar token contracts? Tells you if the code behind the contract is similar to other tokens released before, basically if your token is a copy paste from another token that was done in the past. **This one is important**
* Source does not contain a proxy contract? Basically if your contract checks if your contract isn’t wrapped on another one that could be used to “hide” it’s shitty status.
* Source does not contain a pausable contract? Tells you if whoever is in control of the token can pause or not it’s transactions.

Post: [💎$Coco Swap is trending now! Get on the Mission To The Moon 🚀](https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoMoonShots/comments/n9hef5/coco_swap_is_trending_now_get_on_the_mission_to/)
results It isn’t found by the sniffer.
First off, the amount of emojis on the titles is disgusting.
So we have 10 token contracts, out of which we have 8 copy pasta coins, basically coins that required no effort to be done and come from completely sketchy unsafe sources, with many of them incluiding older rug pulls, and literally each one is a share their similarity with other tokens that have completely stupid names. 1 of them seems to pass each one of the sniffers simple tests, but doesn’t have any info registered, it doesn’t even have a name binded to the contract that the sniffer can show, and at last a coin that doesn’t even shows up on the sniffer.
After all as you can see, /r/CryptoMoonShots is a completely shitty subreddit, don’t get anywhere near it, most of the tokens that get there are scams, rug pulls or pump and dumps, in the past when I was more of a newbie I also got caught up in the idea of finding the next gem, and visited the subreddit and some others, I was convinced at points but the hassle to get on the swaps or the gas on UNI were too much and my stupid impulse was repressed by the time I had figured out how to buy them.
