From what I have been reading on the forums some alternative cryptocurrencies have been designed purely to provide the early adopters or those pre-mining in secret with a high number of coins to facilitate pump-and-dump like selling.

Which alternative cryptocurrencies have had these characteristics?

What other approaches have been used by alternative cryptocurrency developers to facilitate pump-and-dump like mechanisms or other ways of making money fast?

Which alternative cryptocurrencies have been abandoned after pumping-and-dumping or similar activities?

What evidence is there to prove any of these?

Conversely it would seem the alternative cryptocurrencies with good development teams seem to live long and prosper. There are a few out there I have a lot of respect for.

I think it's when after a few pages into the coin's thread, you come to realize whether these guys know what they're talking about or not

Does anyone know what happened to chinacoin? Did it have a massive reward for the first set of blocks and then drop off sharply thereafter?

don't want to harp - (because i don't have to ) - and this forum is ultimately a very small market..

but

nibble NBL was not a pre mine or an instamine - that is why i started to support it , and that's why it is going to be successful .
 

Litecoin's 1st 12,096 blocks produced 604,800 LTC - though GPU mining wasn't released to the general public (but that's not it wasn't used)
Feathercoin's 1st 12,096 blocks produced 2,419,200 FTC  <<<<< WTF ?
Nibble's 1st 12,096 blocks will produce 127,054 NBL  (of which the Dev holds about 3k present )



is it's symbol

and my advice is to mine it now or buy it now, but that's just my advice.  I have been wrong before - but not that often on this stuff.
