1st April is a day when almost everything shared and said are majorly termed as jokes. Due to the significance of this day, people prefer to scrutinize information, especially the significant ones, before subscribing to it.
Such jokes also attracted the attention of the cryptocurrency community members a couple of hours ago. Some crypto enthusiasts and companies decided to pull legs with crypto-related updates.
Three of the crypto-related April-fools’ jokes, which we found as most captivating and funny can be found below:

Some hours ago, the leading cryptocurrency market data company, CoinMarketCap announced that it has added a new coin dubbed the Toilet Paper Token. CMC even pointed out that the new coin presently outperforms Bitcoin (BTC), the first and largest cryptocurrency.

The cryptocurrency market data company only used it to describe the extent of the scarcity of toilet paper supply in the stay at home ordered by governments across the world, especially in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy and other developed countries that are majorly affected by coronavirus pandemic.
