Reason For SAVM Price Crash

The SatoshiVM crypto witnessed a significant decline of over 35% amid a dispute involving Ape Terminal, a fundraising platform. The conflict emerged when an adviser to SatoshiVM, MacnBTC, accused Ape Terminal of fraudulent activities during the Initial DEX Offering (IDO). They alleged that all SAVM token allocations were unfairly distributed to Ape Terminal’s team members.

MacnBTC took to X and wrote, “A person I considered a friend and ate dinner with a week ago has lied to my face, betrayed and scammed me, several IDOs and the crypto community. @theapeterminal has scammed all of the IDO launches on their platform.” In addition, they noted that out of the 200,000 wallets that applied for SAVM rewards, all 10 winners were from the Ape Terminal team.

Meanwhile, Ape Terminal refuted the accusations, claiming that MacnBTC was the one profiting from the token sales. The controversy unfolded on social media, exposing conflicting narratives. Moreover, Ape Terminal went on to label SAVM as a “bittersweet” development for them. Additionally, they alleged that MacnBTC leveraged the opportunity to harvest their “own community for millions in profits.”

Consequently, the SAVM price crashed massively. At press time, SAVM traded at $7.92, indicating a plunge of 27.57% on Thursday, January 25. Whilst, it held a market cap of $53.21 million. On the contrary, the trade volume for SAVM soared by 95.45% to $49.79 million in the last 24 hours.
