8 Years ago today there were only 51 coins in existence (and only 2 of them remain in the top 10). Today there are 9379 coins and 90% of them will probably not exist in a years time (I am looking at you SafeMoon)

Here is a snapshot of life in the cryptoworld (eight years ago) back on September 24th 2013;

It’s amazing how a lot of those coins don’t even exist today. Either that or you can find them ranked outside the top 1000 or even top 2000 (outside of Litecoin which is still in the top 20). A common theme was that their names had to end in ‘coin.

Of all of those, only Bitcoin (BTC) and XRP remain in the top 10, the rest have either passed away or remain outside the top 1000 cryptocurrencies.

It seems that 8 years in the cryptosphere might as well feel like a lifetime.
