During the AMA, Smith said SafeMoon's own token exchange was "in the architecture phase."
He added the exchange would work in a similar way to the token, in that people will get rewarded for not selling—referred to as "holding"—and penalized for selling.
"So when you hold your Bitcoins with us and someone transferson our platform, you're going to be reflected from that user, some of that Bitcoin," Smith said.
"Same with all of the other coins and tokens and things that we support. That'll be the core function of the exchange."
The team has been seeking to raise $1 million to create the SafeMoon Exchange. Currently the fundraiser has gained around $774,000 USD.
We need to talk about my crazy new $600 crypto hardware wallet
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are all the rage right now. The deafening buzz surrounding NFTs has caused ethereum to climb, Elon Musk's tweets seem to constantly send dogecoin soaring, and bitcoin is flirting with $60,000 yet again after having climbed to an all-time high above $61,500 earlier this month. Countless people have been introduced to crypto markets for the first time thanks to all the hype right now. Companies like Robinhood and Paypal are also jumping on the bandwagon, making it unbelievably simple for people to buy bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrencies in their apps.
The team also announced some sort of NFT support in the SafeMoon wallet app.
SafeMoon has become one of the most-speculated cryptocurrency tokens on the web in recent weeks amid the Dogecoin surge. SafeMoon is currently worth roughly a four millionth of a dollar.
The currency has received a great deal of support from fans while some cryptocurrency enthusiasts have voiced skepticism.
Onepost yesterday read: "SafeMoon's market cap is over a billion dollars, and it's only existed for one month! We're making history."
Analyst and crypto blogger Lou Bagel writes: "As far as I can see the coin has no utility. I would not claim this is a Ponzi Scheme but I do see the same upside and downfall.
"Upside: Investors keep making money as long as new people are buying in. The 5% of transactions going to current investors ensures this. Downfall: It falls apart when no-one new wants to buy. If no-one is buying then investors are receiving 5% of nothing and no demand causing price to fall."
