What is A Shitcoin? How to Spot A Viable or Promising Shitcoin from a Fake One


Cryptocurrencies, like BTC and ETH, have proven resilient, useful, and dynamic. At least, they are weathering the storms the existing economic setup is posing against them, in excellent fashion too. Aided by the infamous 2020 lockdown, investors’/stakeholders’ interests, both retail and corporate, in digital currencies have risen dramatically in recent months. However, this article is centered on the concept ‘Shitcoin’: what it means and how to spot a viable/promising Shitcoin.

As the name conveniently implies, Shitcoin is a crypto (mostly new and unpopular) whose utility is not defined, yet valueless and extremely cheap. Cryptocurrencies are mostly pushed by certain individuals/institutions to rise in value, almost like promoting a small golf club for regional and international competitions. A good example of a Shitcoin is the $SHIB and $Dogecoin, the former made its big break into Binance yesterday 11th May.

This is the same with most Shitcoins, as they have relatively small communities of low and middle-class investors backing them for more value. The real breakthrough comes when major Cryptocurrency platforms like Easycrypto, Binance, Lobstr, etc enlist them for trading.

However, the uncertain futures of most Shitcoins give rise to several scams. Hoax communities are formed to ‘promote’ hoax Shitcoins to attract genuine investors who then unsuspectingly commit their resources. Most times, they quietly disappear later.
