New Solana Memecoin THUG Cat Gains Attention Despite Insider Sell-Off

The emergence of Thug Cat ($THUG), a new Solana memecoin, has caught the eye of the crypto community, propelling it to the sixth position on the Dex screener today.

However, recent data from Lookonchain reveals an intriguing development involving insiders profiting from the token’s surge.

Insiders capitalized on the hype surrounding Thug Cat by strategically maneuvering their holdings to maximize gains. According to the data, insiders made a significant profit of 9,954 SOL (equivalent to $1.49 million) by dumping their Thug Cat tokens.

The insider activity began with a calculated investment of 1,500 SOL (approximately $225,000) to acquire 674 million Thug Cat tokens across four wallets. Notably, this purchase coincided with the developer’s addition of liquidity to the platform, suggesting a coordinated effort to capitalize on the token’s liquidity event.

Subsequently, the insiders distributed the acquired Thug Cat tokens to multiple wallets before initiating a sell-off. A total of 464 million Thug Cat tokens were liquidated, resulting in a substantial profit of 11,454 SOL (approximately $1.72 million) within a mere 10-hour timeframe.

Following the sell-off, the insiders opted to burn the remaining 210 million Thug Cat tokens, effectively reducing the circulating supply of the token. Despite the insider activity and subsequent sell-off, Thug Cat’s market capitalization currently stands at $1 million, indicating continued investor interest in the project.

The rapid profit-taking by insiders highlights the speculative nature of the memecoin market and the potential for significant gains in short periods. As Thug Cat continues to garner attention within the Solana ecosystem, investors should remain vigilant and consider the implications of insider activity on the token’s price dynamics.
