2017, what a hell of a year. It was a year that seemed to last an eternity, yet pass by like a car crash. And through it all, countless people — and things — spent the year unwittingly vying for the title of the biggest villain on the internet.

Who will win? Place your bets — using your preferred volatile cryptocurrency — and watch.
