Many people are aware of a high risk of investing in newly launched tokens on BSC blockchain. You can easily become a victim of a scam (small-scale or big, e.g. hyped Squid Games). However, if you invest smart, it might be extremely profitable (x100-x1000).


LaserDiscovery BETA is a live feed for discovering newly launched BSC tokens. It investigates all BSC transactions, detects launches in real-time and analyses tokens based blockchain and social data.

  • blockchain data
  • social data (Telegram, Twitter, Reddit and website)
  • contract code (80+ checks based on Slither library)

It also publishes score from our partners (TokenSniffer).

LaserDiscovery token survival

Note that LaserDiscovery 1.0 (BETA) is already:

  • at least 20 times better than random search among recently-deployed BSC tokens
  • at least 2 times better than random search among PCS-listed tokens

And there are a lot of improvements planned to increase this ratio further.



  • at least 97% of BSC-deployed tokens are hopeless (either dump or flat)
  • at least 93% of PancakeSwap-listed tokens are hopeless (either dump or flat)
  • LaserDiscovery is already 2X-4X better than random search
