A trader has recently drawn significant attention in the cryptocurrency community for amassing approximately $2.5 million in profits, a 6,102% gain, by trading meme-based cryptocurrency Grok (GROK), a new token that rivals Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB).

Grok, a new AI Chatbot — inspired by Douglas Adams’ science fiction novel “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” — that aims to compete with Microsoft’s Copilot (formerly known as Bing Chat), Google’s Bard, and OpenAI’s ChatGPT by being more fun and less woke was announced by Elon Musk’s AI startup xAI on 4 November 2023.

According to xAI’s announcement, distinctive for its wit and rebellious nature, Grok is tailored for users who appreciate humor in their AI interactions. A unique feature of Grok is its real-time world knowledge due to its integration with Elon’s social media platform X. This enables Grok to address bold and unconventional questions, often avoided by other AI systems. Currently in its early beta stage after three months of development, Grok is expected to evolve rapidly with user feedback and interaction.

xAI’s vision behind creating this chatbot is to develop AI tools that assist humanity in its quest for knowledge and understanding. Grok aims to be a versatile research assistant, empowering users across various backgrounds and political views. Currently, Grok is only available to X Premium+ subscribers in the United States.

The Ethereum-powered GROK token has the following tokenomics:

According to an article published earlier today by The Daily Hodl, the blockchain-tracking service Lookonchain reported that the trader achieved these profits through astute timing in buying and selling Grok (GROK). This token, inspired by but unrelated to Grok AI, a chatbot service on Elon Musk’s social media platform X, has seen a substantial increase in value.

The trader’s strategy involved purchasing GROK at a low price shortly after trading opened and then selling portions of the holdings on the cryptocurrency exchange Gate.io as the memecoin’s value surged. At the time of writing, the trader still possesses nearly 70 million Grok tokens.
