the disruptive foolcoin

A pataphysical philosophy and a research-first driven approach

Let's go


For a long time, the world of cryptocurrents has been full of ICO’s scams, tokens of great uselessness and the agony of lame coins. All these cryptocurrencies can be called “fool-coins”. PoissonCoin (pwasɔ̃ kɔɪn) is a big revolution in the fool-coins’ ecosystem because it is not a scam. It’s a pataphysical cryptocurrency !

The development team conducts an intensive research to collect the most inefficient features of existing and non-existing cryptocurrencies. Then the team implement them badly … but for real ! Ontologically speaking, PoissonCoin is a proof-of-concept.

PoissonCoin is a French cryptocurrency born on April Fools’ Day 2018.

Discover PoissonCoin now!!


  • A new kind of blockchain

    public ledger based on a centralized database (inspired by the Ripple)

  • A trustful system

    proof of work made by the user (inspired by IOTA). Overdraft allowed without charges!

  • A great distribution model

    early adopters exponentially advantaged (inspired by Bitcoin)

  • An arbitrary supply

    no limit of tokens, every "pump" is a bubble (inspired by Stellar Lumens and IOTA)

  • A brilliant participation

    stakers earn money thanks to a Ponzi protocol (inspired by Bitconnect)

  • An outstanding security

    keys generated by a high quality ROT29 cryptosystem (a revolutionary protocol)

Understand PoissonCoin

The PoissonCoin has been called so for two reasons. First, it honors the famous French mathematician Simeon Denis Poisson who gave his name to the Poisson distribution in probability theory. Its ICO roughly follows a Poisson distribution. Secondly, on April Fool’s Day, French people are used to making jokes by sticking a paper fish to a victim’s back! (“poisson” means fish in French)

PoissonCoin has been developed by the team of Vivien Berriche, researcher in pataphysical cryptography at Kim Kardashian College of Cryptography.

The whole project is detailed in the whitepaper.





1st-30th of April: presale of tokens (ICO)

April 25: a huge announcement!

May 1st: bank holiday for the International blockchain Workers’ Day

May 2: blockchain usable by the whole world (including China, Iran and North Korea)

July 1st: new surprise feature

December 25: 18 PoissonCoin offered to hodlers for Christmas


March 14: Vivien Berriche’s conference at the WTO (to be confirmed)

April 1: Vivien Berriche’s conference at the UN (to be confirmed)

June 14: new surprise feature

December 25: 19 PoissonCoin offered to holders for Christmas


Q1: because of a hack, PoissonCoin splits into PoissonCoin and PoissonCoin Classic.

Q3: because technical disagreements, these two forks split into four: PoissonCoin, PoissonCoin Cash, PoissonCoin Classic and PoissonCoin Classic Cash.

December 25: 20 PoissonCoin offered to hodlers for Christmas


February 20th: update (softfork)

Get PoissonCoin

ICO usually means “Initial Coin Offering”. But for PoissonCoin Foundation, it means “Incredible and Comic Opportunity“.

During the month of April, PoissonCoin’s tokens are available according to a Poisson distribution based on DogeCoin ! Pratically, It means that its price will increase! First day : 1 PoissonCoin = 1 DogeCoin. Last day : 1 PoissonCoin = 10 DogeCoin.

If you don’t care to own Poisson’s tokens, we perfectly understand! You can help the research in pataphysical cryptography with a donation. The development team will buy organic bread, sulphite-free red wine and stinky cheeses. We do not want a Lamborghini because we prefer to ride bikes.

  • Vivien Berriche


Vivien Berriche is French. His name is pronounced “bearish” and not “be rich”. He studied at “Milton Friedman” school, an expensive private business school in Versailles, France. Despite the easy network of this kind of school, he couldn’t find a job because he was the worst student. Then, he started a PhD : “the Schadenfreude applied to speculation”. But it was mostly copy-pasted from other works. So, he couldn’t find a postdoc either. The emergence of cryptocurrency has been a great opportunity for him: he has created his own job at the PoissonCoin Foundation. He knows some HTML, CSS, Scratch and he is learning some PHP and Python. He is the inventor of ROT29.
