Blockchain security company PeckShield first reported the alleged rug pull, noting the sharp decline in the value of Dragoma’s token DMA.
According to available information, over $420,000 USDT and 880,000 MATIC were rugged from the project.
DMA’s value fell sharply from $1.8 to less than $0.0023 in the last 4 hours. The token was widely hailed as one of the top gainers on August 6 after its value rallied by over 160%.

The extent of the rug pull is unknown; however, over 5700 wallet addresses held Dragoma, according to data on Polygonscan. One crypto community member lost $10,000 to the rug pull.
The GameFi application website is currently inaccessible, and its Telegram channel has been deleted. Other social media platforms like Twitter have also been deleted.
Meanwhile, the rug pull comes less than a day after the MEXC Global exchange listed the token in its Assessment Zone and opened the DMA/USDT trading pair.
However, the exchange has released new information on its blog stating that it has suspended trading of the token till further notice because of “abnormal on-chain transfers of Dragoma (DMA).”
Dragoma is a move-to-earn game similar to Solana STEPN. Pitching itself as a Web3 lifestyle game, it allowed players to earn the DMA token for performing several activities ranging from training a dragon to pet combat.
Non-fungible tokens play an integral part in the game. The Dragon eggs hatch after 40 days of the player walking 500 meters daily. The beta version of Dragoma world was set to launch at the end of August.
