Blockchain based Crypto-Currencies

Ever wondered what other crypto-currencies there are out there like bitcoin? Well I compiled a list of most of the ones I could find and gave a little information on each crypto-currency and what makes it different from others. I have also given links to where you can download the clients and get more information on the coin. Most of these I have been able to build and mine on, however it should be noted that most i have built from source wherever possible on a Linux Ubuntu 12.04 OS, but a number have got windows installs as well but be careful don't try on computers where you have any unlocked wallets with coins in them as I'd hate you to loose your coins!!

Long live all the Blockchains!!

Alive and well:

blocks every 10 min, 21 million coins will be available, difficulty adjustment 2016 blocks, double-SHA-256 hashing algorithm, the initial block reward is 50 coins (25 coins currently)

blocks every 10min, 21 million coins will be available, difficulty adjustment every 2016 blocks, double-SHA-256 hashing algorithm, the block reward is 50 coins.

blocks every 10 min, 21 million coins will be available, difficulty adjustment 2016 blocks, double-SHA-256 hashing algorithm, block reward is 96 coins.

blocks every 10 min, constant generation coins will be available, difficulty adjustment 2016 blocks, double-SHA-256 hashing algorithm. Block reward is 50,000 coins, EXTRA 90% block subsidy goes to foundation.

blocks every 2.5 min, 82 million coins will be available, difficulty adjustment every 2016 blocks, scrypt hashing algorithm, block reward is 50 coins.

blocks every 10 min, non-deterministic coins will be available, difficulty adjustment each block, double-SHA-256 hashing algorithm, block reward varies on difficulty. EXTRA Incorporates Proof Of Stake coin Generation.

blocks every 10 min, non-deterministic coins will be available, difficulty adjustment each block, scrypt hashing algorithm, block reward varies on difficulty. EXTRA Incorporates Proof Of Stake coin Generation.

blocks every 2 minutes, 42 million coins will be available, difficulty adjustment every 30 blocks (difficulty adjustment based on hashrate from last 720 blocks), double-SHA-256 hashing algorithm, block reward is 20 coins.

blocks every 10 minutes, 100 million coins will be available, difficulty adjustment 2016 blocks, double-SHA-256 hashing algorithm, block reward is 220 coins. EXTRA 4.89% anual demurrage, 80% block subsidy goes to foundation for the first 3 years (about 500 coins for each of first 161280 blocks, total 80m).

New or Recently Created Coins

Remember to check for scams and viruses!

  • CDC Cloudcoin - Scrypt POW/POS. 100 million total coins, designed to be the “coin of the cloud”
  • CGB Cryptogenic Bullion - scarce coin, only one million will every be made. Scrypt based, GPU mineable but ASIC resistant
    • Note: CGB is transitioning over to the not-new section as it is adopted by many and on multiple exchanges
  • GRW Growthcoin - Scrypt hashing with interest feature
  • CRC Craftcoin - Scrypt hashing, designed to be a coin for minecraft. Server plugin has not been developed so now it is pretty much just another coin. Interesting concept though.
  • STR Star Coin - Scrypt algorithm but with random block rewards based off of Luckycoin

Established, but not well adopted

difficulty adjustment 72 blocks, hashing algorithm SHA-256d and scrypt, Reward 50 coins per block NOTE !warning! not opensource !

  • BAR BitBar - Scrypt hashing algorithm, new blocks every 15 seconds, 1 coins per block and drops, fork of NovaCoin

In need of Dev work on daemon, client etc but network still running

blocks every 10 minutes, no cap as block subsidy has a minimum of 1 coin, Constant difficulty of 0.5, Coin reward drops over time

Resurrected!
