Bitcoin still dominates the portfolios of most crypto investors and is by far the most popular cryptocurrency, meaning its price is less prone to drops than the rest of the market.
In 2018, CNBC reported that approximately 800 cryptocurrencies, which appeared as a result of initial coin offering, can now be called "Dead," because they are traded at a price below $0.01.
Here are our top-five dead cryptocurrencies - which were terminated by their founders - that turned out to be scams or had trading volumes of less than $1,000 for three months.
The entry, withdrawal and exchange of the NEM cryptocurrency takes place on exchanges.

"Cryptos developed because of BTC. The cryptocurrency story is a Bitcoin story. It is difficult for me to specifically name those coins that will be worthless, but I genuinely believe that 99% will become worthless because their origination was driven by an attempt of a person, company or consortium to ride the coattails of Bitcoin. I believe that LTC and ETH have a good chance to retain value because of their already mass acceptance. On the other hand, I believe that niche coins and coins largely controlled face an uphill journey."
