A crypto trader used a Banana Gun sniping tool to make a $6.77 million profit within three hours of the launch of the SatoshiVM (SAVM) token. The tool helped the trader acquire the token before the launch, which they later sold at an inflated price after the official launch. The trading bot has remained controversial since its release, with several cases of funds mysteriously vanishing post-sniping.
While a Banana Gun spokesperson told Cointelegraph that it is not an issue with the bot, some token contracts have functions where the contract deployer can move funds out of wallets. In one case, the tokens never moved to the buyer’s wallets due to a malicious contract.
