A newly launched website has released a crypto token called “Corona Virus Token.” Similar to other crypto tokens, it claims to be completely decentralized and that there is limited supply of 1 million tokens. The site displays “LET’S HELP THE VICTIMS OF THE CORONAVIRUS AROUND THE WORLD”, in an attempt to cash in on the sympathy for victims of the pandemic.
