What is a Dead Coin or Dead Token?
A token or coin that has been abandoned, scammed, website dead, no nodes, wallet issues, no social updates, low volume or developers have walked away from the project.
Any unknown information sent to us on the dead cryptocurrencies could have a bounty up to 0.1 ETH, things like linked projects and developers. Only with some proof and stuff that is not readily available with a common google or way back search.

Why do some of the coins on the list say current?
This is because they can sometimes still be traded, it is not advised to trade these coins. Because they have very large risks, very little development and low liquidity, talking volume under $1000 per day! and a market cap in the thousands.
*note as the market grows the ranking could change from 1000 -> 1500 -> 2000.
