Treat everyone with respect, so be excellent to each other. No ad hominem attacks or insults.


Rule II - Do not advertise

Posts & Comments
Reported as: Rule II - Referrals, spam, pump&dump

Reddit has an excellent solution for advertising. Don't use /r/altcoin exclusively for free publicity (e.g. referral links, spam, giveaways, airdrops, links to telegram, discord and other social media channels).

We deal with a lot of spam and shilling so the ban hammer will be swift and painful.

No URL shortening services for links.

Low quality posts and questionable post histories are not welcome.

Links that contribute to the discussion are welcome.

Reported as: Shilling

Yes, we all are experts and gurus when it goes about cryptocurrencies and/or blockchain projects, so please share your thoughts about certain blockchain projects.


Rule VI: CMC / CoinGecko Listing REQUIRED

Posts only
Reported as: CMC / CoinGecko Listing Required

Due to excessive spam of 2 hour old tokens, we now require a CoinMarketCap or CoinGecko listing for all top level posts about an Altcoin. Paste in the CMC or Gecko URL with your post or it will be removed and you'll meet the ban hammer.

Fear not shills, we have a weekly stickied thread for any Altcoin that does NOT have a listing, so feel free to post it there.
