DEX Screener To Review Moderation Policy Amid Flurry of Racist Memecoins

The platform ensured it won’t be a gatekeeper, but that it’s also not here to spread hate.

A proliferation of racist tokens has pushed DEX Screener, a real-time DeFi token analytics platform, to review its token profile moderation policy.

“We’ll be reviewing our token profile moderation policy in the coming days,” said the platform’s X account, adding that it, “won’t be the gatekeepers of what happens on-chain, but we’re definitely not here to spread hate.”

The announcement, made late Friday, March 22, came as a number of unsavory token profiles began popping up on the platform–most of which are surfacing on Solana.

Some of these include derogatory terms and symbols based on race and religion, as well as other hateful language.
