How Many Cryptocurrencies Are There?
I wonder - just how many cryptocurrencies are there out in the wild? And how many of them are actually used in real life (for anything other than trading)? Yes garlicoin, Im talking about you.
It is now much easier to create one since the advent of crypto platforms such as Ethereum and Neo.
Anyone care to do the math?
There are around 1500 that are known of.
I recently found out that many of them are in infancy and are not even introduced to mainstream market.
So it's really hard to tell. With Cryptos like NXT, which is used to create Tokens and Coins there could be thousands of unknown coins
I think you're right @Roginich - coinmarketcap lists 623 tokens and 913 coins.
If you're not even on that list, lets assume its a shitcoin or scamcoin ;)
Just seen Garlicoin is coin #394 !! Go garlicoin !!
@joes Haha Garlicoin cracks me up too. There's even one called "FlappyCoin" which I assume is referring to that game Flappy Bird.
@lucky777 oh nice. Did you hear about Asstoken?
@joes lol. So there's a token you can send to the assholes in your life. I'll buy a few and send my boss one lmao.
@lucky777 sure is (was) - if you dont want to spend too much money, you could always send him AssPennies instead. Ha. Sadly though both projects are on the deadlist.
