In the beginning shitcoins were just a means to continue to use your GPU's when ASIC's started coming online to keep getting more bitcoin. People mined Litecoin and Darkcoin etc for more btc. I never thought litecoin would overtake bitcoin but why not mine it for more btc since we couldn't mine btc anymore? It wasn't long before all the mining services even automatically converted it to btc for you.
why not mine it for more btc
Exactly that mentality, promote the putrid shitcoinery. You simply sustain a shitcoin to exist. If shitcoins do not have lazy people to mine them, will never exist, simple as that.
Stop giving them ANY reason to exist.
