Back in the good old days (if you can remember as far back as 2017) nearly any crytocurrency was fair game for exchanges, it did not seem to matter if the crypto had a project ongoing, a team behind it, a working product, a testnet or even a use case. Thankfully for the long term future of the crypto industry the great bear market of 2018 has come along and the start of the shitcoin purge has begun. Leading in to 2019 more and more delistings are going to happen so be careful what and where you put your money.

There are two main websites aiming to bring information about abandoned crypoto projects, scams, failed ICOs, etc in order to help inform us about potentially dangerous investments and we will in time be featuring their results in more detail. They are Coinopsy which lists nearly 500 dead cryptos, and DeadCoins which lists over 900. If you are looking at small cap coins it is always impreitive you do your research and due dilligence before investing. If not the coin you buy may be one of the many getting delisted from the top exchanges. Speaking of which…
