CryptoCoin.com: Vertcoin (VTC)

Vertcoin (VTC)

12,800 satoshi
(Source: Poloniex, 301,431 minutes ago)

Vertcoin (VTC) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin and launched in early 2014. It attempts to negate some of Bitcoin's shortcomings, namely circumvent the effect of ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) computing which tends to monopolise coin mining. As such, it claims to be able to stop the infamous 51% attack, a known vulnerability in Bitcoin. This feature is achieved through the use of a memory-intensive hashing algorithm called "Adaptive N-Factor" (or "Scrypt Adaptive N-Factor", or "scrypt-n" for short) which discourages the use of ASIC systems. The coin was launched with no pre-mining, except for three blocks to test the software. Original announcement.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 83 (1.5), 6 months: 86 (1.2), 3 months: 67 (1.3), 4 weeks: 78 (1.1), 1 week: 59 (1.5)
