There are currently

cryptocurrencies in the world.

## Why is it hard to know how many cryptocurrencies there are?

Cryptocurrency is a decentralized industry and there is no central authority that governs the issuance or creation of cryptocurrencies, coins, or tokens. Anyone can create a token on various blockchains (Ethereum, Solana, Polkadot, and many more), so there is no good way to keep track of the number of cryptocurrencies in the world.

This is why various sources like CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko have widely differing numbers of cryptocurrencies, as they have their own methodology to count and list cryptocurrencies. We update our counter daily to account for the latest listings on various platforms, and the number presented is our closest estimation.

## How many active cryptocurrencies are there?

There are about 720 active cryptocurrencies, though this number highly depends on how you define active. We define active as coins or tokens with over one million in daily trading volume since most cryptocurrencies depend on public interest, and trading volume is a decent way to measure the public interest in a cryptocurrency.

## How many dead cryptocurrencies are there?

Consequently, there are over 20,000 dead crypto projects. Once again dead is a somewhat subjective definition, as even a crypto with a core community of 100 people could theoretically be alive and well. But since we need to draw a line, we apply the one million in daily trading volume here as well. Many of these projects aren’t “dead”, but they might as well be for most of the world.
