Despite the prevailing bearish sentiment, the surge pushed Maneki (MANEKI) to a fresh all-time high since its recent launch.

Shortly after its debut, Maneki experienced a whirlwind of activity as seven wallets, potentially interconnected, swiftly acquired a substantial portion of its total supply. In just one minute of Maneki’s launch, these wallets dumped a staggering 3,388 SOL, equivalent to approximately $525K, to acquire a whopping 3.99 billion MANEKI tokens.

This sudden movement accounted for nearly 44.9% of Maneki’s total supply, sparking intrigue within the crypto community.

Interestingly according to a post made by Lookonchain on X, instead of offloading the acquired tokens, the wallets dispersed them to almost 100 new wallets. The current valuation of the whales’ investment stands at around $88 million, fueled by the rapid surge in the Solana meme coin’s price.

While investors are intrigued by the sudden surge of Maneki’s price, the swift token accumulations by Solana whales raise concerns of potential insider trading, potentially leading to a pump-and-dump scenario.

Furthermore, during its pre-launch phase, the Maneki team had announced an airdrop campaign, allocating 10% of the total supply for community distribution. However, some participants reported discrepancies in receiving their airdrop tokens as promised.

In response, the team assured participants that they were actively addressing these concerns and processing the airdrop rewards accordingly.
