Although the market has performed poorly recently, some people are still making a lot of money by using MEME coins.

On June 21, a MEME coin called WATER Coin raised more than $41 million in the pre-sale stage alone. The project raised 200,000 SOL within 1 minute of the start of the pre-sale, and 300,000 SOL within 5 minutes, worth about $41 million, becoming the largest MEME coin pre-sale case to date, with more than 26,000 wallet addresses participating in the pre-sale. On June 24, the WATER token was launched on Solana, and its market value once exceeded $1 billion. For a newly launched project without clear endorsement, it is dramatic to achieve such a large amount of funds. PANews conducted an in-depth analysis of the project and found that the popularity of this WATER token is not accidental.

The infamous German Prince is the manipulator behind the scenes

According to PANews investigation, the team behind WATER is the same team that operated the previously popular MEME token BEER on Solana.

BEER token is a beer-themed MEME token. On May 20, the pre-sale reached 30,000 SOL, worth nearly $5 million. After the launch, the price of BEER tokens soared, with the highest increase of 30 times and the market value reaching $500 million. According to netizens, the team behind BEER coin is Marcus Prinz von Anhalt (generally known as Prinz Markus), a German brewer. Prinz Markus is a famous German businessman who also runs several nightclubs and brothels. He has attracted public attention with his luxurious lifestyle. In 2006, he spent millions of dollars to buy his new name Marcus Prinz von Anhalt, which means Prince Marcus von Anhalt, by being adopted by the princes wife. Since then, Prinz Markus likes to call himself German Prince in the media. In 2014, Prinz Markus was sentenced to four years in prison for tax evasion and fraud. He has also been charged with money laundering, tax fraud and human trafficking.

Judging from Prinz Markuss social media information, he has been keen on investing in the cryptocurrency field in recent years. After the launch of the BEER token, he has taken the initiative to endorse BEER many times. Currently, Prinz Markus has 7.74 million followers on Instagram, and the prizes in the BEER holding event, such as CYBERTRUCK and private jet trips, free beer supply, etc., have also been displayed on Prinz Markus social media. However, Prinz Markuss reputation is not good. On social media, some people directly call him a liar.

According to netizens, another initiator of BEER is German entrepreneur Ben Bilski, who was previously a professional swimmer and has won the German championship many times. After retiring, he started a business in the technology field and founded NAGA Group AG (one of the most highly valued fintech companies in Europe). Ben Bilski resigned as CEO of NAGA Group AG in March this year. According to public information, Ben Bilski is also keen on cryptocurrency investment.

In addition to the two German entrepreneurs, there is also a Gotbit hedge fund behind BEER. Gotbit has clearly stated on Twitter that it has reached a cooperation with BEER and helped BEER complete the market value management. Gotbit is a hedge fund that specializes in helping tokens achieve market value growth. Previously, ZachXBT, an on-chain detective, said on the X platform: I would be cautious about any project that cooperates with the market maker Gotbit Hedge Fund because a leaked report showed that there are big problems with the services it provides. Gotbit claims in this document that its strategy is to push the price up to 10 times in the first few minutes of the price discovery phase to create FOMO and accumulate as much purchasing power as possible to reach the limit and sell all tokens in the subsequent peak. And judging from the price curve of BEER, it seems to be in line with this trading idea.

Unique marketing tactics

Unlike many MEMEs, the marketing position of BEER tokens is not on Twitter, but on Instagram and Telegram. Its main user groups are from Germany and Dubai. In addition, BEER has made more designs in the gameplay, in addition to the normal pre-sale. BEER has also launched various coin holding reward activities and rewards after the market value breaks through certain ranges. The rewards include a two-person private jet trip to Munich Oktoberfest, an annual beer supply, a Tesla Cybertruck, and personally brewed beer.

WATER adopted the same marketing strategy after its launch. WATERs token rewards include cruises, Maldives tours, etc. In addition, the WATER token also simulates the characteristics of water in the token design, naming the pledge and token burning as freezing and evaporation.

In addition, the BEER team made full use of its influence on Instagram to promote it to many users who did not know much about cryptocurrency, including some tutorials on how to register a wallet from scratch to buy BEER tokens. An athlete named absolut_lukas has commented on the project and retweeted it many times. The blogger has 66,000 followers on Instagram. A Twitter user named @Shayaniii revealed that they got in touch with a lot of influential people (not just cryptocurrency people) and spread it like fire, even including big rappers like Luciano. Of course, the biggest help was Prinz Markus himself, who posted videos on Instagram many times to promote the token.

In addition, the BEER communitys Telegram channel also has 2 million subscribers.

The team continues to ship, and the chain snipers suffer serious losses

Although the initial increase in the BEER token was quite exaggerated, the price also plummeted as the team frequently sold it. As of June 25, the price of the BEER token had fallen by more than 90% from its high point, and the market value had also fallen back to around $50 million. According to LookonChain monitoring, the BEER teams associated address had shipped several times after the price rose, with a cumulative sales of more than $3 million. In response, the BEER official said in the Telegram community: On-chain analysis shows that 95% of the quota has been sold in the recent panic. This is a very good signal for the project, and we expect that the subsequent sales pressure will be greatly reduced.

Perhaps seeing the strong wealth-making ability of MEME coins, WATER achieved unexpected results when it was issued. It received a pre-sale amount of 41 million US dollars in 5 minutes. It far exceeded its expected hard cap of 55,500 SOL. Finally, WATER increased the hard cap to 250,000 SOL (about 32.5 million US dollars) and refunded 11,000 SOL to the robot accounts that participated in the pre-sale.

The WATER token rose nearly 10 times in a short period of time after its launch, and then fell all the way within a few hours. As of June 25, its price fell to as low as $0.00097, which was lower than the issue price of $0.0016 at the opening.

In addition, the development team seems to have replicated the insider trading operation on BEER. According to lookonchain, the development team has transferred 844 million WATER tokens to 11 wallets that did not participate in the pre-sale. According to PANews’ investigation, these 11 wallets have currently sold WATER tokens worth $2.36 million, and still hold tokens worth 1.75 million, which are being sold one after another.

An on-chain sniper suffered heavy losses in this opening. The sniper, whose address starts with 63KCv, spent 15,000 SOL to buy WATER (worth about 1.9 million US dollars) after the opening. Less than 10 minutes later, he sold it and only recovered 9,306 SOL, worth 1.2 million US dollars, with a loss of 710,000 US dollars.

For the BEER team, the result of this pre-sale was far beyond their imagination. However, the market trend seems to be difficult to replicate BEERs route, and the teams usual strategy of insider trading has already exhausted all the fish in the pond. I wonder how many people will be willing to pay for the next beverage MEME coin when it is issued.

Original author: 1912212.eth, Foresight News Multicoin Capital first gained huge attention with a number of crypto investment articles, and then became famous for successfully betting on well-known projects such as the high-performance chain Solana in the last bull market cycle, and became one of the top VCs.

In December 2022, it admitted that it had suffered heavy losses, and the asset size plummeted by 90% that year, which shocked the public. For a time, there was a constant stream of criticism from the public, and discussions about Multicions incompetence or innocence were rampant.
