SafeMoon belongs to the penny cryptocurrencies category. It only costs tiny fractions of a cent, which makes it accessible to investors with small money.

How does SafeMoon crypto work?

SafeMoon launched in March 2021. The crypto recently upgraded to version 2 or V2 to introduce some improvements. The project has a dividend-type distribution for holders. SFM token transactions, like transfers between wallets and buy and sell trades, are subject to a fee. A portion of the fee is redistributed to existing SafeMoon holders, similar to how companies make dividend distributions to shareholders.

Another portion of the transaction fee is used to fund a token burn program designed to grow the value of the crypto over time. Through burning, the token’s supply is reduced, which creates scarcity that can lift the value of the token as its demand increases.

Is SafeMoon a good investment?

Many investors are attracted to SafeMoon with hopes that it could explode like the meme cryptos Dogecoin and Shiba Inu before it. The upgrade to V2 and the team’s ambitious roadmap are the other sources of interest in Safemoon.

Following in Shiba Inu’s footsteps, SafeMoon is also venturing into the DeFi and NFT spaces. In the DeFi space, for example, the team plans to launch a crypto exchange and that could open another source of revenue from trading fees to help grow the projects.

The SafeMoon team is working on an NFT marketplace, which could help the project make more money. The NFT market is booming, with sales forecast to grow to $80 billion by 2025 from about $25 billion in 2021. NFTs have turned out to be powerful marketing tools, which brands like Coca-Cola and Nike have shown. As a result, a move into the NFT space would make the project extra money and help grow SafeMoon crypto’s awareness to attract more investors.

SafeMoon lawsuit targets Jake Paul, Soulja Boy, and other celebrities

Investors behind the lawsuit accuse celebrities like Jake Paul, Soulja Boy, Nick Carter, Lil Yachty, and Ben Phillips of misleading them and others about the crypto’s potential. They have described the scheme as a slow rug pull.
