What is Skepticoin?

Skepticoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that enables you to send money online. It’s also the central community of people who think that’s bullshit.

What’s your problem with Crypto?

Crypto-currencies are fine when viewed as a technological curiosity. If you actually believe that blockchains are the future, that bitcoin is a store of value, or that non-fungible tokens are anything but a scam, things get problematic.

Why a coin then?

Crypto-enthousiasts have an incentive to be loud about crypto-currency: the more other people they convince, the richer they themselves become. Crypto-sceptics are a silent majority: they have no such incentive, so you never hear them. Skepticoin changes that, by making the sceptics invested in a coin themselves.

Goals & motto

  • 1 SC equals 1 BTC
  • Not “to the moon”, but “into the ground”

Get coin

Skepticoin is a “early phase” coin. This means you can probably mine some yourself, as per the instructions above.

If you have ethical objections against this, you can always go to the faucet to get some free coin.
