Dead Coin

A cryptocurrency that is no longer in existence.

What Is a Dead Coin?

Dead coins are digital tokens that have failed or been revelaed as scams, and thus, no longer viable. There are thousands of failed cryptocurrency projects or ICOs that are no longer active for a number of reasons ranging from internal corruption amongst developers, massive devaluation, low liquidity or total abandonment. Though most coins that become labeled "dead coins" go extinct, some do come back to life and regain value if there is enough interest.
