The contract address 0xAf2358e98683265cBd3a48509123d390dDf54534 has been blocked by the PEPE deployer, and this address owns a total of 2519324010963 tokens worth a staggering $8 million USD as of the current price. However, these coins have been locked forever. The crypto enthusiast, @0xCygaar explains:
The blacklisted address purchased $PEPE within a couple hours of the Uniswap pair being launched. They were blacklisted by the PEPE deployed 8 minutes after purchasing the tokens. No other address has been blacklisted.
These blacklisted addresses can never be modified since the ownership of the contract has been renounced. 0xCygaar further explains: “There was once a minimum and maximum token amount that an address needed to follow before it could purchase from the Uniswap pair. This threshold was removed right before the deployer renounced ownership”.
Although there’s a burn functionality available in the contract, there’s no further minting functionality available.
