Social crypto platform has bounced back 23% in the past 24 hours, after last week's launch of its token and version two (V2) of its platform didn’t go to plan.

Many who were able to claim their tokens appeared to be immediately selling off their tokens, with FRIEND's price tanking 46% from $2.78 to $1.49 in less than four hours, according to CoinGecko

Since then, is up around 60% to $2.38. In part, the community believes this is due to those who simply farmed the airdrop having immediately sold, leaving the market. However, the SocialFi platform has also made a number of changes to the platform to the joy of the community.
