Crypto exchanges who provide purchase and promote providers, have creeped into the US Sports activities markets with stadium and different naming rights deal, however not often has a coin paid to advertise itself in skilled sports activities.
The crypto coin, which trades at a fraction of a cent, grew to become widespread on social media platforms like TikTok which led to a parabolic rise in mid-to-late April. It has fallen dramatically since, collapsing over 60 per cent from the height.
Safemoon has come below criticism from many within the area as a ponzi scheme, with Kiwi crypto fanatic Lark Davis calling it ‘insane’ and saying that ‘individuals actually love ponzis’.
#safemoon is value virtually 7 billion totally diluted market cap…. insane! Folks actually love ponzis, appears that scams at all times pump the toughest.

In one other tweet, Davis likened the crypto to a Ponzi, evaluating it to the failed platform BitConnect.
“Keep in mind simply since you make cash off of a Ponzi doesn’t change the truth that it’s a Ponzi,” Davis mentioned, including “#safemoon.”
Keep in mind simply since you make cash off of a ponzi doesn’t change the truth that it’s a ponzi. #safemoon
