RChain runs on top of Ethereum platform and is available on 7 crypto exchanges in different trading pairs. Presently, RChain is actively trading on Bitinka, KuCoin, CHAOEX, BitMarket, Bilaxy, Hotbit and CoinPlace cryptocurrency exchanges with a very low 24-hour trading volume. A few exchanges are even showing zero trading volume of the coin.

According to the earlier reports, RChain Cooperative claimed that the RChain organization was facing bankruptcy. In early 2019, it was asserted that RChain’s liabilities were exceeding its liquid assets, thereby making it “Functionally bankrupt”.
As per another post in April 2019, RChain informed its community that the company suffered a scam. Accordingly, KuCoin exchange (which is one of the exchanges which listed RHOC token) blocked the crypto wallet address of the scammers. RHOC in its blog summarized the scam as follow; “The RHOC being held by the scammers will not be honored upon reaching Genesis”.
Th reason behind the coin’s sudden growth is unclear, but it is to be noted that this behaviour is typical of coins that are involved in pump and dump schemes.
