Bitcoin education portal 99Bitcoins is the newly appointed undertaker of the cryptocurrency industry.
It’s taken over the Dead Coins project, which provides a burial ground for more than a thousand dead cryptocurrencies, and breathed new life into the project by ensuring the list is accurate and by removing joke burials for Bitcoin, Tron, Dogecoin and Tether.
Deadcoins.com was started in 2017 to document the demise of the hundreds of altcoins that materialized off the back of the ICO boom that year. 99Bitcoins meanwhile was founded in 2013 to offer a practical and non-technical guide to those new to Bitcoin.
The list of dead cryptocurrencies is a nice companion piece to 99Bitcoin’s highly-referenced ‘Bitcoin Obituaries’ page which records every time the mainstream media claims that Bitcoin has died. At last count, Bitcoin had died 399 times.
The newly cleaned up Dead Coins page is reporting 1559 altcoin fatalities at the time of writing.
