The infamous chain letter that swoop the US back in 1930's keeps coming back again and again in history in various forms.

The original chain letter is known as Send-A-Dime or Prosperity club. This is possibly the first version of the Money Chain Letter which requested people to send a dime to the name and address of the person via snail mail and replace the name with their own at the bottom and forward it to 5 people.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

              Prosperity Club
                 In God we trust

Miss Jeanne Paris, 404-5th Street, Bismarck, N. Dak.
Miss Isabel Clark, Capital Commercial College, Bis
mark, No. Dak.
Mr. Jimmy Lies, Fessenden, No Dak.
Mr. Marvin O Miller, Fessenden, North Dakota
Miss Emma Keiper, Fessenden, North Dakota
Miss Caroline Billingmierer, Fessenden, North Dak.

             Hope--Faith--Charity. 

This chain was started in the hope of bringing you  prosperity. Within three days make five copies of this letter leaving off the top name and address and adding your own name and address at the bottom and mail to five of your friends to whom you wish prosperity to come.

Im omitting the top name, send that person ten cents as a charity donation. In turn when your name reaches the top of the list you will receive 15,625 letters with donations amounting to $1,562.50.

Is this worth ten cents to you?
Have the faith your friends had and this chain will not
 be broken.   [1935-05]

A similar version was started by crypto currency enthusiasts. Since the blockchain enables complete anonymous payments, this seems to be more successful than the original one. 

Below is an edited version of the same. Instead of snail mail or facebook messages, this one seems to have gone viral on WhatsApp.

             Hope--Faith—Prosperity. 

This chain was started in the hope of bringing you  prosperity. Within five hours of receiving this message, forward it by deleting the top bitcoin wallet number and adding your own bitcoin wallet number at the bottom and send it  to five of your friends to whom you wish prosperity to come.

In deleting the top name, send that person $10 as a goodwill gesture. In turn when your name reaches the top of the list you will receive goodwill amounting to $156250

Is this worth $10 to you?
Have the faith your friends had and this chain will not be broken.
