The cryptocurrency market is flooded with projects and companies are formed over night, promising use-cases of the blockchain that have never been heard off before. They create websites, announce ICO dates, execute them and then they fall off the face of the market because their coins have become virtually worthless owing to multiple reasons.
These reasons could be as simple as the idea did not materialise, the interest that they expected from the community wasn’t achieved, etc. Irrespective of what the reason for tanking is, the fact is that the coin, project and by extension the company have failed. Coins that become virtually worthless over time are called Shitcoins in the community.

Most of these coins have not even crossed the $1 USD mark in the last 8 months of this year and have stayed sub-zero dollars for more than five months.
