An alleged rug pull on the decentralized exchange (DEX) Swaprum has wiped out $3 million worth of customer funds.

A rug pull is a type of cryptocurrency scam in which developers abandon a project and steal the funds that have been deposited into it. In the case of Swaprum, the developers allegedly shut down the platform and disappeared with the funds.

The rug pull has affected a number of users who had deposited funds into Swaprum. Some users have lost tens of thousands of dollars, and others have lost their entire life savings.

The rug pull has raised concerns about the security of decentralized exchanges. DEXs are designed to be more decentralized than centralized exchanges, but they can also be more vulnerable to scams.

Users who are considering using a DEX should do their research to make sure that the platform is legitimate. They should also only deposit funds that they can afford to lose.
