Who is the Solana rugger?

The Solana rugger is a notorious scammer in the NFT community. Previously, they have rugged projects called Reptilian Renegade, Balloonsville, and Doodled Dragons. The lizard pfp that Alex uses is actually from the Reptilian Renegade NFT collection.

Despite many people investigating and studying the blockchain movements, the serial rug puller has yet to be identified. 

Twitter user @Topboycrypto has created a detailed thread in which he claims – with ‘evidence’ that ShiLLin_ViLLian is the Solana NFT rugger. They tweeted, “A thread on how @ShiLLin_ViLLian could be the potential Solana rugger or be a part of the team.”

Twitter thread suggests Alex has links to NFT rug pulls.

Topboycrypto has used Solscan to find a wallet they believe belongs to Alex. This wallet has recently sent over 250 SOL to an NFT wallet belonging to the Solana rugger. In the Twitter thread, they declare that they believe @ShiLLin_ViLLian is the Solana rugger.

Topboycrypto states this evidence suggests that ShiLLin_ViLLian is either the rugger or has links to them. 

Over the last year, the vocal lizard pfp character, Alex, aka ShiLLin_ViLLian, has gained massive popularity in the NFT space. He is controversial, with many fans and haters. Recently, he was also involved in a Twitter beef with Frank Degods, creator of DeGods and Y00ts.
