The following cryptocoins match your criteria (sorted by popularity):
1. CannabisCoin (CANN) (42)
CannabisCoin (CANN) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin and Peercoin in May 2014. It was conceived as a payment solution for marijuana dispensaries, retailers and merchants and it is backed by marijuana wherever it is accepted. Technically, CannabisCoin is a proof-of-work cryptocurrency which uses the ASIC-resistant X11 hashing algorithm and Kimoto's Gravity Well (KGW) for adjusting the mining difficulty. The total coin supply is capped at 92 million. Original announcement.
2. Dash (DASH) (55)
Dash (DASH) is a decentralised, open-source, digital cryptocurrency project forked from Litecoin in January 2014. Compared to Litecoin, Dash offers stronger transaction privacy and anonymity, while its software is more resistant to mining with specialist hardware. Better privacy is achieved through a technology called Darksend, a coin-mixing service that combines identical inputs from multiple users into a single transaction with several outputs which obfuscates the flow of funds. Dash has also developed and implemented a hashing algorithm called X11 which uses a sequence of 11 rounds of hashing for its proof-of-work consensus mechanism. To adjust mining difficulty over time, Dash uses an algorithm called Dark Gravity Wave, also developed in-house. The cryptocurrency project was formerly known as Darkcoin (DRK), but it was rebranded to Dash in March 2014. Original announcement.
3. GoldBlocks (GB) (85)
GoldBlocks (GB) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from BlackCoin in May 2016. It's a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake (PoW/PoS) coin which can be either "mined" by a computer or "minted" through a process called "staking". The PoW part of the coin uses the X11 hashing algorithm (11 rounds of scientific hashing functions that include blake, bmw, groestl, jh, keccak, skein, luffa, cubehash, shavite, simd and echo) with a 60-second block time and a total coin supply of 24.7 million. The coin's PoS method offers a 10% annual interest on staked coins, with the total supply capped at 50 million coins. Original announcement.
4. Capricoin (CPC) (105)
Capricoin (CPC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Novacoin in July 2015. It is a pure proof-of-stake (PoS) coin, paying a diminishing interest rate that started at 2% per annum. Of the projected supply of 208 million coins, 200 million were pre-mined; about half of that amount was designating for future distribution to users maintaining the network and staking the coins. Capricoin is a reasonably fast coin, providing transaction confirmation times of just 60 seconds. Original announcement.
5. I/O Digital Currency (IOC) (114)
I/O Digital Currency (IOC) is a decentralised cryptocurrency forked from Novacoin in July 2014. It is a pure proof-of-stake cryptocurrency, except for the initial 14-day proof-of-work period that generated a total of 16 million coins by mining - using the X11 array of hashing algorithms. There was no pre-mine. The proof-of-stake stage carries a 2% percent interest rate on staked coins and the total coin supply is set to 22 million. IOCoin comes with an interesting innovation called IONS (I/O Name Server), a feature that allows sending and receiving payments by using a registered user name. Besides a standard Qt-based wallet, the project developers also provide a more modern alternative based on HTML5. Original announcement.
6. Digitalcoin (DGC) (119)
Digitalcoin (DGC) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in 2013. Developed by Digitalcoin Foundation, the software makes use of multi-algorithm hashing (scrypt, SHA-256 and x11) for increased transaction security. Original announcement.
7. StartCOIN (START) (123)
StartCOIN (START) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in June 2014. It was conceived as the first cryptocurrency to support crowdfunding (through the StartJOIN.com platform), a way for start-up companies to raise funds in the Internet era. Technically, StartCOIN is a proof-of-work coin that uses the X11 array of hashing algorithms, DigiShield as the difficulty retargeting mechanism, and fast 1-minute transaction confirmation time. The total coin supply is 84 million startcoins, half of which were pre-mined; these are continuously being donated to new start-ups and active StartJOIN users. Original announcement.
8. SaffronCoin (SFR) (127)
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.
