Behind the Steps:

As you experienced, it’s very simple for an illegal contract to rug liquidity from AMM Swap. All it need to do is simply sending two transactions:

  1. Surge liquidity of $RUG token from its rug contract.

  2. Swap all $RUG token to utility tokens like $ART, and pull them all.

However, Anti-rug Aspect makes a difference.

Anti-rug Aspect serves as a risk management module integrated into the blockchain runtime.

It identified the rug-pull transaction under its risk control logics, intervened and reverted the transaction before it was finalized, preventing any actual loss of funds.
