Some people call them cryptocurrencies. Others call them altcoins or alts. But to many they’re known as shitcoins: digital currencies that are like bitcoin but, well, crappier. Sure, they may boast faster transactions and lower fees, but they lack the brand recognition, network effects and catchy name. Without, they were destined to be doomed.

What’s in a Name? is a repository of the worst coins ever foisted upon the cryptocurrency community. Some were always a joke; others became a joke; and others were simply cursed with unfortunate names which meant they never got off the ground. Highlights include Scamcoin with its “innovative proof of scam system” and AssPennies: “Created in 2014, this coin was the shittiest of the original shitcoin craze”.

Other classics that are dead in the water include Fck Banks Coin, Fellatiocoin (it blew), Groincoin, and Crimsoncoin whose devs “sold their coins and ran off in less than a week”. No prizes for guessing what happened to DodoCoin. If you think that’s as low as it goes, strap in and hold on tight cos we’re just getting started.
