The Top 6 Bizarre Coins You (Never) Heard Of

Cryptocurrency’s sudden surge in popularity late last year encouraged an eclectic range of new coins to be produced. Although most tokens tend to revolve around a specific purpose or utility, a select few gain notoriety for their unusual niche focus. Listed below are six such bizzare coins and tokens as listed on Coinmarketcap.com.

1) PotCoin (POT)

Created in 2014, PotCoin seeks to provide a banking solution for the $100 billion global legal marijuana industry. It touts itself as the first digital cryptocurrency developed to facilitate transactions within the legalized cannabis industry. Coinmarketcap ranks this coin as #468 in marketcap. Although Cannabiscoin, Kushcoin, and other tokens also focus on cannabis, Potcoin gained worldwide notoriety for sponsoring Dennis Rodman’s diplomatic overture to North Korea.

2) JESUS Coin (JC)

According to Forbes, several friends came together to launch Jesus Coin as a form of satire in 2017. However, many investors invested in this project during the bull run of December 2017. As the company boasts, it’s presently “negotiating with churches to outsource sin forgiveness.” It also boasts “record transaction speeds between you and God’s son.” Jesus Christ was declared to be the founder and CEO of the company, according to the website, with Judas Iscariot and Saint Peter named as the trustee and public relations officer, respectively. And yet, in spite of the clear satirical nature of the tweets and notes on the company’s website, investors continue to buy coins (with a 30% rise in the price within the last 24 hours).

Created in 2016, TrumpCoin was created to honor Donald J. Trump and help him secure the Presidency of the United States. Now that he is the 45th President of the United States, the TrumpCoin community’s goal is to help the President accomplish his goals. The coin’s founders envision TrumpCoin as a future worldwide grassroots fundraising tool for projects the president deems important. According to its website, it promises a 2% staking reward.

4/5) Sex Coin (SXC) & MORE Coin (MORE)

With the adult entertainment industry being among the largest, there have been several cryptocurrencies created to support the industry. Among them are SexCoin, TitCoin, MoreCoin, and many others.

Sexcoin tackles the three main payment problems faced by the adult entertainment industry. These issues include fees charged by credit cards, lack of privacy, and potential chargeback claims. Thus, using SexCoin offers the following advantages: NO FEES to receive and only .001 Sexcoins to send payments; after confirmation, all transactions are final (this rule removes the likelihood of chargebacks, the bane of many within the adult entertainment industry); merchants/providers and their clients enjoy complete privacy, as personally identifiable information is required to send or receive payments.

MoreCoin is a cryptocurrency token created for the MORE brand, an adult entertainment provider seeking to become the #1 nightlife platform. A purchase of 5000 MORE tokens is required to obtain membership in MORE Las Vegas. Additional locations are scheduled to open in Los Angeles and Miami. Membership benefits revolve around special access to special arena events, exotic car rentals, and even a special pool cabana within Las Vegas.

6) Garlicoin [GRLC]

Developed in late 2017, Garlicoin originated from a meme that went viral on Reddit. Purely satire at first, Garliccoin continues to retain a strong fan base. Outside of DogeCoin, its the most successful meme coin ever. The coin’s primary focus revolves around Garlic bread and the community that has developed around it.

Garlicoin boasts cheap and fast transactions, a low barrier to entry, and a total focus on the coin’s community. These features have helped Garlicoin become a triumphant success: 40 second block times allow for blazingly fast confirmations, and ASIC resistant proof-of-work algorithm means anyone with a GPU can contribute to mining.

  • Total Market Cap: $63,924
