Key themes on high risks:

  1. Roughly 34% of the newly identified risky addresses were through threat intelligence. These addresses are either confirmed rugpulls (project has already removed rugged) or scam tokens that have high risk of rugs.

  2. Another theme for these contracts is that they showed scam features. This means that it could be a Ponzi, Honeypot or fake token. This portion represents 26% of the total newly identified risky addresses.

  3. Another theme for these contracts is that they have a privileged role, e.g owner is an EOA, which could mean some centralization risk as the owner can mint or toggle honeypot mode at will, so there could be rugpull risk. This portion represents 21% of the total newly identified risky addresses.

Tip: Filter by Top_TVL_Risky_Pool / Trending_Risky_Pool / Trending_Risky_Tokens to retrieve the risky addresses from different sources.

Integrations with PancakeSwap

Hashdit has partnered with PancakeSwap to integrate the DappBay’s Red Alarm. The risk score level reflects how risky the interacted token is, helping users make better informed decisions.

Example: Fake Circle Token - 0x84ef2e2e977062da3cfc12c038fa3ce2d42d01b1 IMG-1

Please take note that the risk level in Pancake & Risk Scanner might be different, because Hashdit use more conservative strategies for PancakeSwap than DappBay risk scanner.
