1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [QUESTION] HELP ME UNDERSTAND - WHY SO MANY POINTLESS COINS? on: July 21, 2014, 07:08:52 AM
can someone ELI5 why so many pointless coins are popping up?  there are the obvious outrageous shitcoins which are just a joke, but then there are like a 100 coins that are just pointless clones.  and everybody seems excited to mine them etc.

what am i missing?  i don't get it.  there is literally zero chance that these coins will be here in a year. and who in their right mind would be these coins from miners on an exchange?

there's an explosion of new coins with new "features"

but what happens when the steady flow of coins with more and more features continues?

i understand how BTC will survive (first mover, largest by far) but I wonder what the current crop of coins must do in order to be around in a few years?
