Deadcoins.com offers a list of every crypto that didn’t make it. Taking a look at the cryptocurrency graveyard can be a sobering reminder that not every crypto recovers.

Essentially what you’ll find are:

  1. Coins that were popular but just didn’t stand the test of time, likeĀ Tenebrix and FairBrix. These stand as a reminder that what is popular today won’t necessarily survive the next cycle.
  2. Coins that were never popular and then fizzled out and died, like solid coin. This stands as a reminder that not every ICO or new token is fit to HODL.
  3. Coins that got hacked and died that way, like UltraNote (a DigitalNote fork). Even a great project can be doomed by a hack… that said, UltraNote was not a great project and the reality is even massive hacks don’t typically take down the best coins (ETC is a great example).
  4. Scam coins likeĀ Bitcoonneeeeeeeect that made some people bank and ruined many more. This stands as a reminder that some cryptos really are scams.
  5. Joke coins likeĀ Useless Ethereum Token. Joke coins are often clearly marked as a joke, sometimes they become big like Doge, usually they drift away down the river of shhcoins. This stands as a reminder not to spend your crypto on coins that are created as a joke.

In all Deadcoins.com is a good resource and a good reminder that while many coins stand the test of time, some coins really do die.
