Arbitrum decentralized exchange IAO cancelation draws controversy

On Apr. 26, Xirtam token’s scheduled initial airdrop offering (IAO) on the Arbitrum decentralized exchange (DEX) AlienFi was canceled minutes before launch. 

It is not immediately clear which party was responsible for the cancelation. In a series of screenshots shared on Twitter, AlienFi alleged that unbeknownst to the development team, Xirtam had conducted “a seed sale sold 3x+ below the Fjord price” before the scheduled IAO and Xirtam “decided to cancel” after AlienFi developers discovered the event, leading to a pricing dispute.

According to an Apr. 20 post, Xirtam was scheduled for a two-part presale with liquidity protocol Fjord Foundry and a private-public sale with AlienFi. The IAO with AlienFi was scheduled for Apr. 26 with a total raise target of 350 Ether (ETH) for 50 million Xirtam tokens. 

According to data from Fjord Foundry, Xirtam’s presale lasted between Apr. 23 and Apr. 26, drawing a total volume of $3.9 million. In a statement released on Apr. 26, AlienFi developers said the launch was cancelled “5 minutes before it’s supposed to begin.” Cointelegraph has reached out to Xirtam for comments but did not receive a response by press time. None of the allegations mentioned in the story have been independently verified by Cointelegraph.
