Jesus Coin is an open-source, satirical cryptocurrency built on the Ethereum blockchain based on the figure of Jesus. Introduced as a "joke currency"[2] on September 2017, Jesus Coin quickly developed its own online community.

According to its white paper[3] Jesus Coin uses the cryptographic breakthrough of the blockchain ledger and anonymous cryptocurrencies, to be “THE currency of God’s Son.”[1]

Jesus Coin was launched on September 18th 2017 and its crowdsale lasted from September 25th to December 25th[4]. Jesus Coin got listed on Coinmarketcap on Tuesday February the 13th 2017 and achieved an all time high market cap of $20.476,903 in just 24 hours with a trading volume of $661,827.[5]

The creators of Jesus Coin remain anonymous. The total supply of the coin is 20,325,184,344 JC.


Jesus Coin claims to make getting closer to Jesus safer and faster due to the use of blockchain technology. Since it is run on the decentralized Ethereum blockchain, Jesus Coin cuts out middlemen, eliminating counterpart risks such as banks, and bringing trading and market costs down.[6] Jesus Coin has attracted multiple international investors because of its speculative nature and early low value.


Jesus Coin has been featured on multiple international media outlets, from Forbes, to Wired and Bloomberg, in the English speaking world as well as Numerama and La Vanguardia. CNN and Daily Beast have also done profiles of Jesus Coin. On March 12 2018 John Oliver mentioned Jesus Coin on his weekly show Last Week Tonight as an example of the diversity of currencies in the blockchain.[7]
