What's new?

An initial report stated that seven new coins were coming to South Korean exchange, Bithumb. On closer inspection this information has yet to be verified anywhere except by the original source.

The source

The information here was based on Where To Coin email notifications (pictured below). However, none of the coins have been announced by Bithumb, and have not been verified elsewhere.

It looks like the Where To Coin notifications are incorrect, and that the coins listed on this page are not currently coming to Bithumb.

This may or may not be construed as a reminder that fake news is rampant, and to always get your information from multiple sources.

Seven coins that are apparently not arriving on Bithumb

  • Mooncoin (MOON) – A micropayments-oriented moon-themed coin that comes with its own simple blockchain programming language, MoonWord.
  • NewYorkCoin (NYC) – Another quick low-fee coin. NYC's main distinction is that it offers a zero fee, instead of a low fee, transfers within New York and aims to become a widely used payment method in the city.
  • BLUE (BLUE) – An ERC20 token that's able to run static analysis on smart contracts to uncover potentially devastating programming errors or scams. Not to be confused with BlueCoin (BLU).
  • NVO (NVST) – An ecosystem built around an exchange and wallet to allow for secure direct peer-to-peer exchanging of cryptocurrencies. It also hopes to help bridge the gap between crypto and fiat in a similar way.
  • TheChampCoin (TCC) –A coin whose defining features are known to be self-promotion, a website that has earned criticism and a company whose potential has been questioned.
  • Bitzeny (ZNY) – A Japan-based CPU mineable coin.
  • Astro (ASTRO) –An ICO-oriented managed investment type coin. Astro does the ICO research, uses ASTRO money to invest in promising ones and pays dividends to its users based on the outcome.
