I see 3 options to startup a coin:
1.) Buy out a forgotten coin & fork the codebase. Buying the community. Revived coins may be easier to market, since some coins exist with forgotten hodl'rs
2.) Fork a coin and rename it . this is what most people do. it's hard to get it marketed.
3.) Use a platform like Ethereum or Waves or Minereum or Bancor... super easy, super inflated, no control over source code.
The only problem I see with 1 is that I may not be able to buy all the coins.
I want to know the best way to start a coin as a single developer.
