Christmas shopping has been getting a lot of attention recently as the holidays approach, but not everyone is buying into the festive spirit of the season.
One popular way to find Christmas merchandise for your collection is through the popular crypto-currency Schnucks, which is trading at around $1,300 per coin on the Bittrex platform.
Schnucks were first created in 2014 by cryptocurrency enthusiast and entrepreneur Christian Pang, who believes that the Schnucks are a way for people to make a small donation to charity.
Schnuck, the name of a traditional Christmas beverage that has historically featured alcohol and spices, was designed to promote the festive season by promoting the good cheer associated with Christmas, which has become increasingly popular as the holiday season has wrapped up.
Schnucking is not the first cryptocurrency to adopt the Christmas theme, however.
There are numerous other cryptocurrency exchanges and trading platforms which also cater to the festive holidays.
However, Schnucks popularity has sparked a lot more attention online.
A few weeks ago, the Schnuck community noticed that the cryptocurrency exchange platform Coinbase was listing a wide variety of Christmas-themed items.
The items were listed under the category of “Christmas gift”, meaning that the items were designed for those who do not want to purchase them.
Coinbase, a cryptocurrency exchange, said that it will be removing the Schnuts listings over the coming days.
It has already removed many of the Schnukes listings.
The Schnucks have been the subject of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice in the United States, after it was discovered that the exchange platform has knowingly offered goods and services to people who did not want the items.
Coinbase is also the subject for an investigation in Japan, after a local media outlet revealed that some Schnucks listings were marked as a fake Christmas gift.
The cryptocurrency exchange site Coinbase has not yet responded to CoinDesk’s request for comment.
