Though seasoned scammers create the Rug pulls, it is easy to spot them if the investor pays close attention to the following signs.

Low Liquidity

The best way to check liquidity is by looking at 24hr trading volume, which should be at least 20% to 40% of the coin’s total market cap.

Low TVL(Total Value Locked)
