The coins with the highest market cap (Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ripple, and others) get the most attention, and rightfully so. However, not many people know how many funny and unusual blockchain-based digital tokens exist. In this article, we will share the weirdest, craziest, and most ridiculous coins that have emerged over the past few years.
Cryptocurrencies from the world of memes
Dogecoin was created at the end of 2013, based on a meme about a Shiba Inu dog. This meme became popular thanks to communities like Reddit. Dogecoin has made a lot of noise. For example, it sponsored Olympic athletes from Jamaica and NASCAR drivers. In 2017, its market capitalization was estimated at over 650 million dollars.
In early 2021, the price of this digital coin has skyrocketed to new heights, with growth rates exceeding even those of Bitcoin. From January 28 to January 29, the value of Dogecoin increased by about 216% to 0.023535 dollars after a comment from Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Dogecoin became the most talked-about cryptocurrency within days.
Nyancoin was created in 2014, based on the Nyan Cat meme about a cat made from a cake flying in space with a rainbow behind it. What is happening with this cryptocurrency today is not entirely clear.
Some sources report that the cryptocurrency isn’t active, while others say it is and offer data that proves small growth.
Cryptocurrency from the world of Kodak
KodakCoin. The camera manufacturer announced KodakCoin at the CES exhibition in January 2018 to manage digital image rights and pay photographers for the use of images. The company even announced a new Kodak KashMiner mining rig. KodakCoin has been available from the start, and the company has already postponed its initial coin offering (ICO) to check potential investors. However, since the second half of 2018, there has been no new information about the state of this crypto token.
Cryptocurrencies inspired by famous personalities
Coinye. This doomed cryptocurrency was created in 2014 and obliterated by Kanye West’s lawyers a few months later.
PutinCoin was created around 2016, positioning itself as the national cryptocurrency for Russia. It should be noted that the president did not comment on its existence in any way. PutinCoin had been in business for over two years when it reached over 11 million dollars market capitalization in 2018. The currency has not been active for the last two years.
TrumpCoin describes itself as a cryptocurrency that supports the Trump administration, its conservative followers, and patriots. Its crowdfunding blockchain provides funding and recognition of patriots using PatriotNodes and PoS mining.
Cryptocurrencies inspired by space and mythology
UFOCoin (Uniform Fiscal Object) uses the so-called neoscrypt technology, which “creates stronger encryption and therefore an additional layer of network protection”, and its unique architecture allows anyone with a desktop computer to mine UFO coins.

Mooncoin is a cryptocurrency and blockchain network in which the total supply of coins is limited based on the average distance from the Earth to the Moon. It also has its own programming language MoonWord for coding decentralized applications (DApps) and keeping records on the blockchain. We bet Moonman himself would approve.

Cryptocurrency for dentists
Dentacoin is a digital token and blockchain network for the dental industry that helps dentists and patients exchange data and medical records, trade products, and materials, and even pay for procedures.
Dentacoin’s price today is 0.000008 dollars, and the 24-hour trading volume is 234,820 dollars. Dentacoin went down by 10.16% in the past 24 hours. Its current CoinMarketCap rank is 918 with a market cap of 4,042,218 dollars. It has 528 105 296 887 DCN coins in circulation and maximum delivery of 7 899 848 965 678 DCN coins.
The creation of digital tokens is still affordable and unregulated, which often leads to the emergence of strange and funny cryptocurrencies.
Since the boom in the development of cryptocurrencies in 2013, the number of so-called altcoins or alternative cryptocurrencies has grown exponentially due to an increase in the number of initial coin offerings that allow companies to raise money by creating their own cryptocurrencies. The number of altcoins currently exceeds 5,000.However, despite the popularity of such cryptocurrencies, the Cratos crypto exchange service still recommends storing your cryptocurrency in the form of the most reliable and stable coins. Cratos offers a free service for storing and exchanging cryptocurrencies for both corporate and individual clients.
