The following cryptocoins match your criteria (sorted by popularity):
1. VERGE (XVG) (16)
Verge (XVG) (formerly DogecoinDark (DOGED)) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Dogecoin in October 2014 and re-branded as VERGE in February 2016. The project exploited the growing popularity of the "fun" Dogecoin cryptocurrency while adding code to increase the coin's anonymity and privacy features, notably the network's ability to run on dedicated Tor nodes. Verge is a pure proof-of-work cryptocurrency that uses multiple hashing algorithms to mine new coins. The number of coins issued has been set to 9 billion during the first year and one billion per year thereafter. Original announcement.
2. Decred (DCR) (34)
Decred (DCR) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in February 2016 by a group of former Bitcoin developers. The new project aimed to address concerns over the increasing centralization of power in Bitcoin and a growing conflict of interest between the user community and those funding the Bitcoin project. On the technical front, Decred is a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake (PoW/PoS) cryptocurrency which can be both mined (using the BLAKE-256 hashing algorithm) and staked. The project offers a choice between a graphical web-based wallet and a command-line client for all popular operating systems, including the BSDs. Original announcement.
3. Sia (SC) (37)
Sia is an open-source, decentralised storage platform where users contribute disk storage from their computers to form a decentralized network. This disk storage space is available for rent. The Sia software provides a Bitcoin-like blockchain with smart contracts and strong encryption which ensures secure, reliable and private decentralised storage. As a payment medium the network uses Siacoin (SC), a proof-of-work (PoW) cryptocurrency, which can be generated by standard PoW mining (using the BLAKE hashing algorithm) or it can be purchased on a cryptocurrency exchange. Original announcement.
4. Vcash (XVC) (73)
Vcash (XVC), formerly Vanillacoin (VNL), is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency launched in December 2014. It was re-branded to Vcash in April 2016. Developed from scratch, it is a fast and privacy-oriented cryptocurrency, featuring ZeroTime (8-second transaction confirmations without the need of masternodes) and DarkPP (a framework for building decentralised DarkNet applications). The Vcash wallet application is a lightweight and easy-to-use cryptocurrency client with one special feature - a built-in command-line interface for passing Remote Procedure Call (RPC) commands. Vcash is a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-work cryptocurrency that allows both mining and staking with an annual interest of 0.7%. Original announcement.
5. Orbitcoin (ORB) (84)
Orbitcoin (ORB) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in July 2013 as a fork of Novacoin. It is a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake coin with a total coin supply of just 3.77 million units. As such, orbitcoins can be both mined (using the NeoScrypt hashing algorithm) and minted (SHA-256) - both methods carry a fixed reward of 1 ORB. Other features of the cryptocurrency include: one-minute combined block target, time warp and "instamining" protection, advanced checkpointing against 51% attacks, and very low transaction fees. Original announcement.
6. Quark (QRK) (92)
Quark (QRK) is an experimental digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Quark uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority; managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Quark's most distinguished feature is its focus on transaction security as it uses nine rounds of secure hashing (three of which use random hashing algorithms) from six different hashing algorithms to encode Quark transactions. Original announcement.
7. Blakecoin (BLC) (98)
Blakecoin (BLC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in October 2013. It was the first cryptocoin project to employ BLAKE-256 (a candidate for the US National Institute of Standards and Technology hash function competition to become the new SHA-3 standard) as its hashing algorithm. BLAKE-256 is reportedly faster than the SHA-256 algorithm used by Bitcoin. It also employs a custom asymmetrical difficulty re-target algorithm. The reward for mining Blakecoin is set to 25 blakecoins plus inflation which is calculated as square root of (difficulty * block height). Original announcement.
8. SaffronCoin (SFR) (119)
SaffronCoin (SFR) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in April 2014. The project improves on the original in that it enables its proof-of-work mining process using five different hashing algorithms (the default SHA-256, along with BLAKE, Grøstl, scrypt and X11), thus making it more difficult for large crypto-mining farms to monopolise the coin-generation process. SaffronCoin's second most interesting feature is its multi-tasking wallet client. Developed using the WebKit web browser engine, the wallet provides not only standard payment features, but also standard web content, a tweet box, data feeds from cryptocurrency exchanges, built-in IRC chat, and a number of other innovative features. Original announcement.
