Dead Coins, a website which tracks ICOs of cryptocurrencies across the globe, reported via CNBC that more than 800 cryptocurrencies are now worth less than a cent, Fast Company writes.

CNBC points out:

There has been an explosion in ICOs. Companies raised $3.8 billion via ICOs in 2017, but in 2018 so far, this number has already shot up to $11.9 billion, according to CoinSchedule, a website that tracks the market. However, hundreds of these projects are now dead because they were scams, a joke or the product hasn’t materialized. (…) Bitcoin has fallen roughly 70 percent since its record high near $20,000 last year, adding to bearish sentiment around cryptocurrencies.
