List of the top 25 rarest cryptocurrencies

One of the main drivers for bitcoin’s price is the fact that it’s rare. It can’t be inflated or manipulated. All told, there will only ever be 21 million bitcoins mined. 100 years or 1,000 years from now, there will only be 21 million bitcoin. In the world of alternate currencies, though, that’s not rare.

What is the rarest cryptocurrency in the world?

That honor belongs to Onecoin – a cryptocurrency featuring just one coin, literally. I haven’t yet found an exchange where you can trade onecoin, though.

What’s the rarest cryptocurrency trading on a top exchange?

What are you favorite rare cryptocurrencies?

I’m still learning about each of the coins on the list, but at the moment, I’m personally invested in Anoncoin (ANC), Bitbar (BTB) and Cryptogenic Bullion (CBG). Why? Each has what I see as a competitive advantage. Here’s what I like:

  • Anoncoin: Anoncoin supports the i2p darknet, which makes it the only crytocurrency that can be scrambled and used on the darknet. That means coins can be used without being traced back to an individual wallet. Should governments crack down on cryptocurrencies, anoncoin might be one of a handful that still survives and thrives.
  • Bitbar: As the scarcest cryptocurrency on a major exchange, Bitbar’s a play on a surge in value for ALL cryptocurrencies. The coin’s scarcity makes it vulnerable to manipulation, but if serious buyers get interested in Bitbar, it’s price will surge – and it could easily cost more on a per-coin basis than bitcoin.
  • Cryptogenic Bullion: Conceived as a buy-and-hold cryptocurrency, CBG will actually pay you interest (1.5 percent a year) if you keep the coins in your CBG wallet. As institutional investors move into alternate currencies, they could bid up the price for CBG. The quantity of coins is low but not too low.
