Dragoma, a Web3 lifestyle sports application built on Polygon that integrates GameFi and SocialFi features, has been reported to be a rug pull scheme. According to security company PeckShield, the native DMA token fell 99.8% to almost zero just after setting a record high of $1.81 on August 7.
A rug pull, to put it simply, is a scam technique where project creators, who are typically unknown, deceive investors into giving money to their cryptocurrency project. Founders frequently suck away liquidity, vanish, and abandon projects after amassing capital and making gains-oriented promises.

However, the cryptocurrency exchange has declared that it has halted DMA trading till further notice owing to unusual Dragoma on-chain transactions (DMA). In light of the suspension of DMA trading, the exchange has announced that the Dragoma Deposit Event will not take place.
