By Published On: 10 February 2024Tags: ,

This past Thursday, the Star Atlas community token Puri experienced a massive decrease in price triggered a singular mass sell-off followed by liquidations on the lending platform Solend.

The initial triggering appears to have been cause by a long squeeze, likely in response to a now deleted tweet made by one of the tokens project leaders. In the now deleted tweet, an overleveraged long position on Solend was exposed, potentially catching the attention of a third party short investor. The unknown shorter hedged approximately $6,000 USDC in an attempt to push the price of Puri lower. While the initial sale caused an immediate liquidation of overleveraged positions on Solend, the Puri community enacted several buy backs in an effort to maintain the price of Puri. Through a flurry of social media campaigning, the Puri project was able to stave off the long-squeeze.

The Puri project released the following statement late Wednesday afternoon:

When an awesome community comes together nothing can stop it. United together under the flag of Star Atlas we have risen together to face attacks against us from the very beginning. The demon whale has not prevailed, assaults on X have not taken us out, a nemesis token is no match for us, infiltration into our ranks builds our bond, even well intentioned support that goes off course has not dampened our resolve. We are making a mark on the blockchain that will stand as a standard to those who follow in our footsteps. As we stand out among the others and gather support outside of our ranks we grow stronger. We are now allied with Orca as they have given us validation and will be only the first to do so. What we are doing is revolutionary and makes us the target of some, as this morning we endured another battle and came out victorious. A short seller attack looking to take advantage of our position quickly learned that we are indeed a formidable opponent. We stood ready for the fight and immediately put the attacker on defense. The community rallied around like no other and we successfully reversed the position and left the attacker with nothing. This is a call for us to continue to stand united. And a call to those who have not experienced what it means to be part of something bigger, join us. Together we will show the difference between a Star Atlas community coin and all the others. Power to the Puri and Puri to the People!!
