The crypto sphere is home to some of the world’s leading technological innovations, but that’s not all it has to offer. If you’re willing to deliver deeper into the world of cryptocurrency, you’re going to find the weird, wonderful, and downright ridiculous.
For a moment, it’s time to forget about Ethereum and bypass Bitcoin, as the following are 12 super weird cryptocurrencies that you’ve probably never heard of.
If you want to get your hands on the tastiest cryptocurrency around, Garlicoin certainly fits the bill. Brough to us by the brilliant mind behind Garlic Bread Dating Simulator – yes, that is a real thing – this garlic-focused crypto certainly represents the weird side of the Internet.
As far as pun-based cryptocurrencies go, nothing quite beats Coinye. The coin was designed to benefit musicians, but its name meant that it faced heavy fire shortly after launch. Kanye West did not take the name of this new token lightly, suing the company behind it and eventually triggering its demise.
You want something crazy? We’ve got your crazy right here, as Insane Coin is one of the most insanely pointless cryptocurrencies out there. It’s practically worthless, with the company behind the coin willing to give the coin away for publicity – if that’s not insane we don’t know what is.
What’s the opposite of a coin that’s being more or less given away? A coin that’s near enough impossible to get. Unobtanium – based upon the word “unobtainable” if you didn’t figure that our already – had no pre-launch announcements and no pre-mining beforehand. The entire premise of this coin is for it to be transparent and rare – we can admit that it’s certainly achieved the later with its 250,000 coin cap.
If you’re willing to head down a cryptocurrency blackhole, you might just find yourself getting political. Trumpcoin has a mission and that’s to use the world of digital currency to spread the message of the 45th President of the United States – who knows, this coin could Make America Great Again.
What’s better than one political coin? Two political coins. From Russia with love, Putincoin is bringing investors pure patriotism from the Motherland. Promoting the ideals of its charismatic leader – note the sarcasm – this coin is perfect for anyone that likes cryptos that carry a socialist twist.
Useless Ethereum Token
If you ever want evidence of how ICO fever got slightly out of hand, just look at Useless Ethereum Token. It has useless in its name, with each coin having zero value, so technically the token couldn’t fail. In spite of being absolutely worthless, it still managed to earn $62,750 in funding during its ICO – who says being useless doesn’t pay?
When your coin has the tagline ““The only cryptocurrency for dentists, by dentists” you know you’re onto something special. DentaCoin is the leading cryptocurrency of the dentist industry. Its goal is to improve dental care around the world by making it more affordable through crowd power. To the guys behind this coin, we say well-done gentlemen, as your cause is noble.
Ethereum Classic Classic
Oh boy, where do we even begin with this. Ethereum spin-offs are pretty common, but this coin is a spin-off of a spin-off. Ethereum Classic Classic is a pretty cheeky way for the creators of Ethereum Classic to generate some extra cash, but we’re on to you guys, as we’ve sussed out your ridiculous ploy.
It’s lude, it’s crude, and it’s X-rated – Sexcoin is an alternative payment system for the adult entertainment industry. Unsurprisingly, this coin is designed with true anonymity in mind, so users can keep any mature Internet activity under the radar.
You knew that there was going to be an expletive-laden coin on this list, so here it is. FUCK Token encourages us all to literally “not give a fuck.” To be honest, there isn’t much else to this coin apart from that, so if you support not caring you can now buy a token that shows that.
We’re ending this list on a bizarre note. Based upon a ritual to the elder god Cthulhu – we’re just as confused as you are – this coin speaks of reward, sacrifice, and a ridiculously long bounty awarded to the “chosen one.” Yes, you’re right if you think it doesn’t get any weirder than this.
