A Solana (SOL) developer, Voshy, recently ran a “GREED experiment” to educate people about meme cryptocurrency cryptocurrency scams.

Voshy made a joke tweet about a new coin, $GREED, when he had around 2000 followers on Twitter platform. On the other hand, the tweet got trending, and his follower doubled in 6 hours.

He likewise created a website, asking people to connect their wallet and Twitter account with “write permission,” to get a greater airdrop. 55,000 wallets were connected to the website, while 42,000 Twitter accounts were connected.

Gradually $GREED started trending on Twitter platform with nearly one Million tweets.

Voshy wrote on a Medium blog:

“Copycat accounts started appearing. Tens of Voshys and dozens of Greeds, both Twitter accounts and crypto tokens launched. In a panic effort to stop people from getting scammed, I go and create a crypto token was known $GREED, with 0 supply and post about it.

I was hoping everyone having that crypto token mint address makes them less likely to throw money in every crypto token was known $GREED while thinking it has anything to do with me.”

Lastly, the developer ended the experiment with a tweet :

“Greed consumed me.

I connected my wallet to a random site, signed a blind tx, handed over write perms for my Twitter.

This was the $GREED experiment.”

As of writing, his follower count has increased over 16 times, from an initial 2,000 followers to over 32,000.
