News that a lawsuit pursued by a Safemoon investor who claimed insiders manipulated the price for personal gain has been dropped appears to be the main catalyst for the price action. However, #SAFEMOONBLOCKCHAIN is also trending on Twitter as the community speculates over a possible future native blockchain for the project.

Following a continuous array of negative coverage of the Safemoon project due to past activity, the dropping of the lawsuit may indicate to some investors that those days are behind them. YouTuber, Coffeezilla released several videos covering the Safemoon project and shared damming allegations of widespread misconduct and fraud. Regardless of previous scandals the community, or SafemoonArmy, remains bullish on the project.

Safemoon currently describes itself as “A human-focused technology and innovation business expanding blockchain technologies for a brighter tomorrow.” Such a tagline seems far removed from its early days of a simple deflationary tokenomics project. The official Twitter account has over 1.3 million followers while the subreddit has 300 thousand subscribers.

Twitter and Reddit contain numerous community posts celebrating the weekend price action with them stating “If you are still here after all the FUD… I salute you” and “The rocket boosters just getting started.”

On Nov. 4 Safemoon announced a beta test and bug bounty program for its upcoming security product, Orbital Shield. No dates have yet been released, however, given the limited information available about the product, any form of progress is likely welcomed within the community.
