Renowned on-chain detective ZachXBT has flagged Leaper Finance, a new project on Layer 2 (L2)  network Blast. Blast is an EVM-equivalent optimistic rollup on Ethereum, offering native yield (staking rewards) for Ethereum (ETH) as well as stablecoins (USDC, USDT, DAI) for depositors.

Blast advertises higher speed and cheaper fees besides the passive income incentive for depositors. This explains its allure for projects.

According to the on-chain detective, reputed for flagging multiple other rug pulls in the crypto sector, the group funded an address on Blast last week. Specifically, they depositing approximately $1 million of funds sourced and laundered from their previous malpractices. ZachXBT describes these deposits as a liquidity influx intended to bait people.

In the past they let the TVL grow to 7 figs before stealing all of users funds deposited to the protocol and falsify KYC documents + use low tier audit firms.

Reportedly, the group has swindles running on “Base, Solana, Scroll, Optimism, Arbitrum, Ethereum, and Avalanche” networks, ZachXBT says, adding Base-based Zebra Lending to the list of possible rugs.
