More Details About the BEN Token
BEN token is a meme coin with no particular use case or utility. It was just created to ride on the wave of other popular meme coins, such as WOJAK and Pepe, to make massive profits. Because of the influence Bitboy Crypto has in the crypto industry, the meme coin started attracting a number of investors who wanted to profit from the bullish wave. It was in the process that Bitboy made the promise that he won't be selling his own portion of $Ben tokens until after a period of 6 months.
Bitboy didn't buy the BEN tokens he was holding. It was given to him for free by another Twitter user named eth_ben. Increasing concerns about Bitboy rug pulling the project made the influencer promise to hold on to the token. With the new leakages, it shows Bitboy didn't live up to the expectations of BEN community members.
Bitboy Crypto Defense
According to Bitboy Crypto, he sold his own allocation of $BEN not because he wanted to increase his Bitcoin crypto net worth but because he made a deal with eth_ben to sell his original token allocation.
Apparently, the deal with eth_ben will allow Bitboy to earn a whopping $250,000 over a period of 6 months. Together with this, he would also earn about one thousand Ethereum. "So everyone is clear on the deal @eth_ben and I are making on $BEN & why I sold my original tokens
It’s for 1000 $ETH and $250k paid in stablecoins over 6 months.
We have a backer who is having to move funds from traditional accounts, and it’s taking longer than I want," he clarified on Twitter.
