A few exchanges are even showing zero trading volume of the coin. RChain Market | Coinmarketcap Although it is a top 100 coin today, such a sudden spike in the trading volume of a cryptocurrency is unusual it is bound to make the crypto community skeptical. This cryptocurrency was at $2.90 in January this year with the 30th rank on CoinMarketCap. Fishy Behaviour According to the earlier reports, RChain Cooperative claimed that the RChain organization was facing bankruptcy. In early 2019, it was asserted that RChain’s liabilities were exceeding its liquid assets, thereby making it “Functionally bankrupt”. As per another post in April 2019, RChain informed its community that the company suffered a scam. Accordingly, KuCoin exchange (which is one of the exchanges which listed RHOC token) blocked the crypto wallet address of the scammers. RHOC in its blog summarized the scam as follow; “The RHOC being held by the scammers will not be honored upon reaching Genesis”. Th reason behind the coin’s sudden growth is unclear, but it is to be noted that this behaviour is typical of coins that are involved in pump and dump schemes. So readers, what do you think about RHOC’s token spike? Let us know in the comment below Image Source – Chainrock medium blog The post One of the Top 100 Coins is Up 220% today.
