As it is the case with other businesses, the cryptocurrency industry is not exceptional. There are coins that registered massive gains during the month and there are those that never saw the light of the month. CoinIdol, a world blockchain news outlet, analyzed the market to define the 5 worst performers of March, 2021.
As other cryptocurrencies such as Medibloc (MED, has a 1-year gain of +67,914.27%), Theta Fuel (TFUEL, +24,477.04%), Kusama (KSM, +24,383.86%), GNY (GNY, +21699.99%), Voyager Token (VGY, +17,028.27%) and Theta Token (THETA, +16,566.91%), have taken advantage of the Coronavirus pandemic to increase their adoption, other cryptocurrencies such as Curve DAO Token (CRV has a negative 1Y change of about -50.74%), Keep Network (KEEP, -31.87%), My Neighbor Alice (ALICE, -15.08%), Multi-Collateral Dai (DAI, -0.34%), Tether (USDT, -0.02%) have not gained from the magical adoption of coins initiated by the pandemic.
In the entire market, Olyseum (OLY dropped by about -94.29%), RamenSwap (RAMEN lost by almost -93.11%), 3X Short TRX Token (TRXBEAR declined by 92.24%), Synlev (SYN dropped by over -90.38%) and Mushroom (MUSH plunged by about -89.88%), were the biggest losers in the past 30 days.
However, these coins were not the worst performers in the market. Below, there is a list of top five loser cryptos that registered the most massive drops.
Regardless of its poor performance, NEM (XEM) is still occupying Rank #38 by market capitalisation (MC). NEM was the worst performer of March 2021 among the top 100 virtual currencies, having dropped by 47.25 percent.
At press time, the price of XEM/USD is sitting at $0.377 (0.55%), with a 24h trading volume of over $282.642 mln, a market cap of $3.393 billion and the circulating supply 8,999,999,999 XEM.

The NEM digital coin is now targeting to hit again the $2.09 price (it last traded this price on January 4, 2018 - over 3 years ago).
Voyager Token (VGX) is a mobile-focused brokerage coin, is also a ERC-20 token and cannot be mined like other conventional PoW cryptocurrencies.
Voyager Token is sitting in Rank #92. Though it is showing signs of recovery, VGX managed to drop by about 31.70%.

VGX can be traded on popular exchanges such as HitBTC, ATOMARS, Binance and Uniswap. VGX is hoping to trade at $10, a price it last traded on Jan 5, 2018, but it has to do a lot of work if it wants to achieve this target.
