4. r/CryptoMoonShots: Best For Budget Trading

Members: 1,900,000

Subreddit Description: “This subreddit is a place to discuss low market cap cryptocurrencies with a moonshot potential. Make sure you read the sidebar before participating.”

Official Discord Link: https://launchpass.com/cryptomoonshots/discord-access

r/CryptoMoonShots subreddit

The open-source nature of cryptocurrency projects means that many new coins are constantly entering the market. As a result, there are thousands of projects with very low market caps (total value of the coin). Many of these projects cost less than $0.01 per coin — many are thousandths of a cent or even less. For traditional market traders, these coins can be thought of as the cryptocurrency version of penny stocks.

r/CryptoMoonShots is a subreddit for discussions around trading these low market cap coins. The idea is that if you buy $50 or $100 of a cryptocurrency trading at 1 cent or less, you can earn if that crypto goes up by even 1 cent. These unlikely, but highly rewarding, scenarios are called “moonshots” — hence the name of the subreddit. The subreddit is dedicated to finding coins that are poised for large growth while they’re still in their beginning stages.

The only types of threads allowed on r/CryptoMoonShots are:

  • Single-thread discussions of a particular low market cap coin or NFT collection

Top all-time posts

The top posts on r/CryptoMoonShots are individual low-market-cap coins that have the potential to appreciate in price significantly. Community discussions take place in the comment sections of these threads, which is where subreddit members can ask questions and push back on any questionable claims made by the promoter of the cryptocurrency.

As such, it is more resistant to wild inflation and corrupt banks. With Bitcoin, you can be your own bank.”

Members: 2,400,000

Subreddit Description: “The most amazing place on reddit! A subreddit for sharing, discussing, hoarding and wow'ing about Dogecoins. The much wow innovative crypto-currency.”

r/Dogecoin subreddit

The crypto mania has produced a number of cryptocurrencies with no intrinsic use-value, but with a vibrant community of fans and traders that prop up the price instead. These coins are known as “meme coins” and the most popular among them is Dogecoin.

Based on the popular “doge meme”, dogecoin is a low market cap cryptocurrency that trades for around a few cents per coin. This is significantly higher than the $0.00020 price per Dogecoin that the cryptocurrency was trading for in its infancy in 2013. Dogecoin’s rise has also been aided by the support of billionaire Elon Musk. His frequent tweets about the cryptocurrency and his announcement that Tesla will take payments in Dogecoin have caused significant price movements on the Dogecoin markets.

The Dogecoin subreddit is the most popular meme coin subreddit and primarily features memes about the coin price, with some discussion posts interspersed.

Top all-time posts

The most popular posts on r/dogecoin are memes about the price of the crypto. Many memes revolve around the coveted $1 per coin mark that Dogecoin almost hit in 2021. Others express dejection at price crashes and solidarity with fellow traders on the arduous journey of holding Dogecoin.
