10 awkward cryptocurrencies

In the world of cryptocurrency, there are not only serious coins that bring real income but also awkward digital money that causes a smile. Currently, there are over 1,531+ coins on coinmarketcap.
Here is a list of coins i find ridiculously awkward; you can call them the black sheep of the family.

 1. Coinye West
Coinye prior to its release found itself embroiled in a trademark infringement lawsuit for using the likeness of American hip hop artist Kanye West whose image as a fish in sunglasses was placed on the coin’s logo.

Wondering why the fishtail on the logo? This is how it all went

In January 2014, West’s lawyer issued a cease-and-desist letter to the anonymous developer
In reply to the letter, the developer added a fishtail to the logo of the singer’s face – in reference to the South Park ‘Fishsticks’ episode that mocks West for taking himself too seriously and not having a sense of humor.
And his lawyers filed a trademark-infringement lawsuit a few days later which led to Coinye’s creators backing down and tweeting that it has been “dispersed”.
In documents filed July 22 in New York, a U.S. District Court declared Kanye West the victor over
most of Coinye makers, some of them John-and-Jane Does, by default because they never bothered to respond to his complaints.

2. Dogecoin (The joke cryptocurrency)

Analysts consider Dogecoin, which appeared in 2013, one of such ridiculous virtual payment tools. The coin depicts a dog of the Siba Inu breed. At first, it was created as a joke currency but soon gained attraction as one of the most popular cryptocurrency.
Back in 2013, lots of cryptocurrencies where been released every week and in reaction to that an Adobe marketing specialist from Sydney Jackson Palmer posted a jokey tweet on 28th November 2013 which says ” Investing in Dogecoin, pretty sure it’s the next big thing ”
It definitely has become a big thing.

3. Insane coin (Definitely for those who wants to get crazy in cryptocurrency)

INSANE COIN is a unique cryptocurrency project aimed at bringing more awareness of digital currencies to the Masses, and takes out the word boring from all things on the verge or nerd!
Its website says, “Insane Coin is more than just a coin, it is a happening … a state of mind. You don’t have to be insane to be part of our community, but it sure couldn’t hurt.”
Its appearance is reminiscent of both the ghost and the psychedelic mask. The plan for its development, according to the developers, includes the creation of a voting system and the opening of the Insane Space store in the UK in 2018.

4. Trumpcoin

The attitude to the current US President Donald Trump is mixed. The developers who released the Trump Coin cryptocurrency turned out to be his supporters. This means of payment was intended to support the head of the White House. At the same time, the capitalization of Trump Coin is quite small: this month it was only 6 cents.

5.The legends room (LGD)

The Legends Room (LGD) cryptocurrency has a non-standard application: you can pay by it at one of the strip-clubs in Las Vegas (USA), and for 5000 tokens – you can receive a lifetime VIP-membership to a Las Vegas strip club run by a team that includes mixed-martial-arts fighter Phil “New York Bad Ass” Baroni.
All holders get a 20% discount (members get 50%) on drinks and services except gaming

6. Moon Coin

Another insignificant cryptocurrency is Mooncoin. This digital means of payment is tied to the same blockchain. The purpose of its creation was to carry out revolutionary changes in investment, but this was never achieved.

7. Skin Coin

The Skin Coin (Skin) cryptocurrency helps its owners to purchase a large number of skins for weapons, as well as to exchange them. The primary placement of Skin Coin tokens took place on June 21, 2017, and by June 30, there had already been raised investments for $3.3 million in Ethereum.

8.  Unobtanium

The Unobtanium cryptocurrency seriously claims the title of the rarest cryptocurrency token in the world. The coin developers claim that in the next 300 years no more than 250,000 similar copies of this payment instrument will be produced. “If Bitcoin is compared to new gold, then Unobtanium is platinum,” the company’s management declares without a shadow of a doubt.

9. Panda coin (PND)

Who doesn’t love panda bears? This cryptocurrency was marketed to crypto novices as easy to understand and use. It’s basically an alternative bank account. If you hold Panda coins in its Panda Bank, you can earn 2.5% annual interest, but only when your computer is online and Panda Bank is open. Market cap: $1.3 million

10. Useless Ethereum Token (Most honest)

“The world’s first 100% honest Ethereum ICO.” This website is full of digs aimed at ICOs.
FAQ: “Wait … is this a joke? Is it a scam? Neither! This is real — and it’s 100% transparent. You’re literally giving your money to someone on the internet and getting completely useless tokens in return.
