Before any investment, you got to DYOR “Do your own research”. The Sudorare team is fully anonymous and not doxxed anywhere. This is what I warned my community on 18 August 2022 when they came to me about investing in them.
This is not a one-off case. If you remember, Frosties freeze rug pull nets 335 ETH. Big Daddy Ape Club also took around the same amount at 9,136 SOL for NFTs that did not even exist. Evil Ape dupes the Evolved Apes NFT community managed to rug 798 ETH from project investors just one week after the collection’s launch. Their social media and website were also gone almost immediately.
SudoRare’s social media is gone. I cannot find their Twitter and Discord anymore. I would suggest those who have used their wallets on them to revoke your access.

SudoRare shuts shop, makes off with 519 ETH
SudoRare, an automated-market maker protocol, shut its services and social media accounts and made away with 519 Ether (ETH) worth about $815,000, according to blockchain investigator Peckshield.
A member of the crypto community was the first to draw attention to a suspicious transaction that used LooksRare (LOOKS) and USD Coin (USDC) tokens to siphon a sizable amount of money from SudoRare.

Evil Ape duped the Evolved Apes NFT community in October 2021 and managed to rug pull 798 ETH from investors one week after the collection’s launch. Their social media and website were also gone almost immediately.
Over $7 billion was stolen in cryptocurrency scams in 2021, according to a report from Chainalysis. This represents an 81 percent rise from figures in 2020.
In 2021, rug pulls accounted for over $2.8 billion stolen, or 37 percent of all cryptocurrency scam revenue. This is a significant increase compared to 1 percent in 2020.
