“Candyman” token has been rising fast barely three days after its creation with a pre-sale price of 1000 Candies/ 0.0005BCH and rising fast. News of its surge has been all over the place thus raising everyone’s interest in this “barely-three-day-old” currency. I do not intend to write about the sudden “hall of fame” of the Candyman token but will like to do a quick review of the “downfall of Metamask” as observed during an attempt to swap some tokens for some Candies.
While scrolling through the feeds on noise.cash about few minutes past 5pm (WAT), I came across username Zeshan3333’s post where he mentioned buying some Candyman tokens at a price of 1000 Candies/ 0.003 BCH and noticed a X2 increment in about 3 hours. This got my attention and decided to swap some of my other sep20 tokens for some Candies so I wouldn’t be left out in this amazing opportunity.
Decided to scan through marketcap.cash to monitor Candyman token’s price before swapping some of my tokens when I also came across SHIBA BCH; a new sep20 token listed on the platform with a price of $0.000000000 but rising fast with a liquidity of $1,155, market cap of $4,017 and a 24hour rise of 220.1%.
This looks like good news and caught my attention even more. I concluded I was gonna be swapping some of my tokens to Candyman and some to SHIBA BCH when the unexpected happened- Metamask went down.
“It should be noted that Candyman slp and Candyman sep20 tokens are two separate things; while the slp token was created on the 11th of November 2020, the sep20 token was created on the 11th of September 2021”.
In an attempt to swap some of my sep20 tokens to Candyman and perhaps some SHIBA BCH tokens, I observed that none of my balances were available except my BCH balance of $6. The rest were all on the “unable to display balance” prompt for over two hours as shown in below screenshot.
In an attempt to by-pass the “unable to display balance” prompt, I went to the Metamask browser while Ignoring this prompt and attempted to swap my tokens anyway; this didn’t seem like a solution as the balances refused to load as well. “Has Metamask been hacked?” thoughts crossing my mind.
I restarted Metamask after about two hours of observation and was shocked by my new discovery; my Metamask balance went back to the initial state of about five days ago; where I had only 151100 $CATS, 1760000 $KITTENS and 20 PHA, instead of a balance of $151100 $CATS, $1864731.53 $KITTEN, 7020 PHA and 2000000 ARG as shown below.
My cousin also stated similar observation which brought about the conclusion that it may be a general issue. Thus, begging the question “Is Metamask down?” I sincerely hope not.
At the time of writing this; 9pm on Tuesday (WAT), my Metamask wallet isn’t back to its original question which is a real bother. I sincerely hope the downtime is only temporary, and as a result of a routine checkup or perhaps a maintenance procedure. At this point I’m with the hope that I am not the only Metamask user with this weird observation, or it would mean I have been hacked and there would be no redemption.
For the newbies; marketcap.cash is a similar platform to coinmarketcap.com but for sep20 tokens.
