Altcoin Horoscope: Does Your Zodiac Sign Have Its Own Cryptocurrency?

After Cointelegraph posted an article about the Gemini exchange, we became interested: how many astrology-based coins are there? Is it possible for every cryptocurrency enthusiast to find a token that fits their Zodiac Sign?

Of course, Gemini is not an altcoin, but it was neither the first nor the last project to have a reference to star signs.

So let’s try and find cryptocurrencies dedicated to each of the 12 astrological constellations.

You may want to ask “Why 12? How about the 13th?” The answer is: we’re still in denial about Ophiuchus -- it’s not a real constellation. With that taken care of, let’s proceed to our list.

Cryptocurrencies of the celestial sphere

Aquarius [Jan 20 - Feb 18]

The cycle of Zodiac signs starts with Aquarius and -- bingo! -- we do have an Aquariuscoin or ARCO. It was first mined on February 19, 2016. A year before, the project leader, Jure Pirc, gave an interview to Cointelegraph about promoting Bitcoin in Slovenia. Today, the coin is not as popular as it used to be: recently its market cap has dropped to $32,000.

Pisces [Feb 18 - Mar 20]

There’s no ‘Piscescoin’, but there’s Coinye whose logo is Kanye West shaped like a fish. So there’s that. The singer didn’t like the idea and his lawyers had the project closed. This token was introduced on January 11, 2014, and only lasted for a week.

Aries [Mar 20 - Apr 20]

Aries had two coins, but both are kind of dead. Here is the sad story: AriesCoin, or AQT, fits the name but looks like a scam, so we’re not going take it seriously. There’s also GOATCoin - though it hasn’t been active since 2014. Its name is an abbreviation of “The Greatest altcoin Of All Time” and its mascot is a goat in a military uniform. However, these powerful symbols don’t seem to have helped this crypto survive.

Taurus [Apr 20 - May 21]

As we know, Tauri are well-known for their stubbornness. But this time it didn’t work out -- the coin we have managed to find is also kind of dead. Taurus or TRC wasn’t a long-lasting token with only one mention remaining online.

Gemini [May 21 - Jun 21]
