A lot comes to mind when you hear this particular cryptos name, however the story behind it’s creation is kind of genius in a weird way. Mooncoin’s developers made it in a way that the total coin supply is limited to the total distance between the moon and the Earth.

Sounds like something someone did as part of a very elaborate bet right? We think so too.

No, it isn’t the same as that super rare and shiny rock from Pandora but it might be just as cool. As the name suggest, this particular altcoin is the hardest to obtain. To make it super exclusive, the developers ensured that miners could only get 250,000 units in 30 years! Similar to other precious and rare metals, the idea is that over time it’s value will increase, making it an excellent way to invest.

The UET is the perfect example of the lengths to which some people will go to when bored. According to it’s website, its creator states that he had no real purpose when he developed this alt coin. However, the website is full of elaborate warnings and sincere advice from the developers such as, “seriously, don’t buy this token” and “you’re literally giving your money to someone on the internet and getting completely useless tokens in return.”

And although the creater stated that “there are no whitepapers, no products, and no experts”, UET still bagged a whopping $340,000 in ICO crowdfunding.

“There lacks a universal standard for the valuation of fuck.” At least that’s what the website of this alt coin claims. Okay, well hear us out when we say they might be onto something. The concern that humans have become far more desensitized to the problems of the world is as real as it gets.

The popular swear word in the token’s name is actually an acronym that stands for “Finally Usable Crypto Karma” (FUCK). The aim is to come up with ways for the world to start giving a fuck again.

DogeCoin

Who doesn’t love the infamous 2013 doge meme sensation where an adorable Siba Inu dog tries to make the world laugh in broken English? At least that’s where the inspiration for Dogecoin comes from. Dogecoin was originally created as a joke by creators, Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus.

 

However, the meme inspired crytpo surprised everyone when it went viral and became as popular as the doge that gave it life. Today, the alt-coin has a very comfortable market cap of around $276 million and has even sponsored water wells in Africa.

WankCoin

Yes, the name is exactly what you thought it meant. With a slogan like “Bank while you wank”, this alt coin has one goal and one goal alone. To further the cause of the average wanker.

However, it isn’t all fun and games as this alt coin delivers on it’s promise and literally allows users to cash in on their sexual urges by mining WankCoins as they well, wank! The website even claims that “the more you wank, the more you mine.” It was created to help users anonymously share and/or buy porn.
