I currently have a token pair (Token A and ETH) listed on Uniswap DEX. However, Token A's smart contract has been paused by its issuer, rendering this token immovable at the moment. Now, I'm aiming to remove the paused Token A and separate the paired ETH.

Since these two tokens were listed as a pair, a liquidity pool maintaining their relative value has been created. Despite the pause on Token A, I find it challenging to separate the ETH using the liquidity removal feature provided by Uniswap.

In this situation, I believe I may need to lift the paused status of Token A, but I would appreciate any guidance on specific methods or alternative solutions.

Furthermore, I'd like advice on what to look out for when examining smart contracts to prevent similar issues in the future, and considerations when investing or trading tokens that include specific features like the pause function.

Thank you in advance for your help.

  • cryptorachel.com might help you. It's a legit site, you may check in the Uniswap Discord, Rachel is an admin there. Re the second question: there are many automated tools that scan the token contract for such shenanigans, like tokensniffer.

I keep running into the scam tokens myself some I make money off of and some I don't but yeah sucks u get into one that u can trade then it skyrockets and you can't sell it lol is there a way to enter a lp with the coins and be able to cash it after it rockets up? I wanna be able to scam the scammers per say 🤣

  • You could ask this as its own questions as it's not really an answer. Usually even the dex cannot get their cut of fees, because lp can't be unwound, only scammer will make money.. Also who would you really be making money from, the scammer or the victims?
