Why are so many online influencers promoting alternative cryptocurrency known as altcoins, memecoins, and shitcoins? Matt Binder takes a look at what's going on with the social media celebrities and livestreaming superstars who are pushing altcoins, why they're doing it, the shady marketing tactics and outright scams and ponzi schemes, and breaks down recent examples from members of esports team FaZe Clan and Twitch streamer Adin Ross.
