1. Shadow (SDC) (4)
2. Gulden (NLG) (6)
Gulden (NLG), formerly known as Guldencoin, is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in March 2014. It is intended as a national cryptocurrency of the Netherlands. Like Litecoin, it uses scrypt as the hashing algorithm, but the total intended coin supply is higher than Litecoin's (1.68 billion). Additionally, Gulden uses Kimoto's Gravity Well to adjust coin mining difficulty. The Subway franchise in the Dutch town of Leeuwarden was the first restaurant to accept Gulden, thus starting a tentative cryptocurrency revolution in the country. Original announcement.
3. Litecoin (LTC) (20)
Litecoin is an open-source, peer-to-peer Internet currency forked from Bitcoin in 2011. Like Bitcoin, it enables instant, near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. Litecoin's decentralised network is secured by complex mathematical computation which allows individuals to control their own finances. Compared to Bitcoin, Litecoin features faster transaction confirmation times and improved storage efficiency. It has emerged as the second most popular cryptocurrency, after Bitcoin. Original announcement.
4. vTorrent (VTR) (25)
5. Dogecoin (DOGE) (28)
Dogecoin (DOGE) is an open-source, decentralised cryptocurrency forked from Luckycoin (a Litecoin fork) in December 2013. Its theme revolves around Shiba Inu, a well-known Japanese dog, which gave the coin its logo. Although Dogecoin started as a "joke currency", it quickly gained popularity, users and "miners" who generate new coins and help maintain the Dogecoin network. While the cryptocurrency uses the same hashing algorithm to process transactions as Litecoin (scrypt), it features a number of differences; notably faster block generation times (1 minute), uncapped total coin supply, and higher block reward (set to 10,000 DOGE per block in February 2015).
6. Bitmark (BTM) (29)
Bitmark (BTM) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in July 2014. The project's main goals are to maintain a stable cryptographic currency network and to promote wide-scale adoption of the coin through an initiative called "marking". The developers focus on implementing features that would make the software easy to use, yet free of unnecessary bloat. Some of the coin's technical parameters include: block time of 120 seconds; block maturity and difficulty re-target of 720 blocks (1 day); block reward of 20 BTM; total supply of about 27.58 million of coins with supply halving every 3 years and with intermediary decreases every 18 months. Original announcement.
7. Feathercoin (FTC) (30)
Feathercoin is an open-source digital currency forked from Litecoin in 2013. The project's main innovation is NeoScrypt, a processor-intensive hashing algorithm that makes it difficult to mine coins with specialist hardware, such as ASIC. Another interesting feature of Feathercoin is the implementation of "advanced checkpointing" in its blockchain to guard against the "51% attack", a known vulnerability in the Bitcoin software. The developers of Feathercoin have been experimenting with additional software and hardware projects not found in most other cryptocurrencies, e.g. development of ATMs and Point-of-Sales equipment, T-shirt wallets, laser-etched physical coins and several Raspberry Pi-based projects. Original announcement.
8. BlackCoin (BLK) (32)
BlackCoin (BLK), formerly BlackCoin (BC), is an open-source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency originally forked from Novacoin in February 2014. After a brief proof-of-work (scrypt) period, BlackCoin has switched to a pure proof-of-stake consensus mechanism which pays a compound annual interest of up to 1% to the stakeholders, depending on the amount of blackcoins staked. On the technical side, BlackCoin's confirmation times of just 64 seconds make it one on the fastest coins around. One interesting aspect of the project is its BlackCoinPool.com mining pool which mines other alternative cryptocurrencies and uses the proceeds to purchase blackcoins on the free market; this creates demand for the currency and it also stabilises its market rate. Original announcement
9. GoldCoin (GLD) (34)
GoldCoin (GLD) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in May 2013. It is a proof-of-work coin using "Golden River" (a variant of scrypt developed in house) as its hashing algorithm. The philosophy behind the coin's generation was modeled on the real-life finite supply of physical gold which is to be exhausted after 100 year of mining, creating some 123 million of goldcoins in the process. While GoldCoin wasn't pre-mined, it was launched with a highly disproportionate reward structure that dramatically favoured insiders and early miners. Original announcement.
10. YoCoin (YOC) (38)
11. Auroracoin (AUR) (39)
Auroracoin (AUR) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in January 2014 as a fork of Litecoin. It was intended as a national cryptocurrency of Iceland and distributed to the citizens of the country to use as an alternative payment option that could circumvent Iceland's foreign exchange restrictions introduced after the 2008 financial crisis. In March 2016, Auroracoin was re-based on DigiByte, replacing the original scrypt hashing algorithm with a multi-algo combination of Grøstl, Qubit, scrypt, SHA-256 and Skein. Certain other parameters were also updated, including the block confirmation time which was decreased to 61 seconds. Original announcement.
12. Gridcoin (GRC) (43)
Gridcoin (GRC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in 2013. Originally it was a proof-of-stake currency with scrypt as its hashing algorithm, but the original client is now being discontinued in favour of a new client called "Gridcoin Research", launched in October 2014. The most distinguishing feature this cryptocurrency is a consensus mechanism called "Proof of Research" which is able to cryptographically verify BOINC (Berkley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) computing tasks and which rewards the client with a cryptographic token for completing the task. BOINC currently hosts a series of scientific projects including cancer research, drug candidate testing, high-energy physics, space mapping and disease control. Original announcement.
13. PotCoin (POT) (44)
14. Reddcoin (RDD) (45)
15. OKCash (OK) (49)
16. Anoncoin (ANC) (52)
Anoncoin (ANC) is a digital cryptocurrency, created in June 2013 as a fork of Bitcoin, with the focus on privacy and anonymity of its users. The software's main feature is the built-in support for two decentralised networks (I2P Darknet and Tor), thanks to which it is impossible to determine the IP address of the user making a transaction. To enhance the user's anonymity even further, the Anoncoin developers plan to implement a new feature called "Zerocoin", which will allow users to make untraceable and unlinkable transactions. With I2P, Tor and Zerocoin, Anoncoin will provide one of the most anonymous cryptocurrencies on the market. As with most cryptocoins, the project's computing network is maintained by "miners", running the Anoncoin software, who generate new coins by processing transactions into blocks. Original announcement
17. Bata (BTA) (53)
Bata (BTA) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin and launched in May 2015. The project's focus is to provide strong privacy and transaction anonymity features by integrating its wallet client with anonymous I2P and Tor networks. Like its parent, Bata is a proof-of-work coin that uses the scrypt hasing algorithm for "mining", although the total coin supply has been limited to just 5 million (less than a quarter of Litecoin's). The cryptocurrency derives its name fromt the word "barter". Original announcement.
18. DigiByte (DGB) (55)
DigiByte (DGB) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency and payment network launched in January 2014 as a fork of Bitcoin.

It is intended as the national cryptocurrency of the Netherlands, bringing back the nostalgic feeling of the times before the country adopted the common European currency. Besides providing a digital payment solution, the project also has advocacy goals, promoting saving over consumption and attempting to preserve scarce natural resources. e-Gulden was heavily pre-mined, with 50% of the total coin supply retained by the e-Guilder Foundation. Original announcement.
29. Crypto Bullion (CBX) (77)
Crypto Bullion (CBX), formerly known as Cryptogenic Bullion, is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Novacoin in June 2013. During the first few years it was a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake currency which allowed coin generation by both mining (using the scrypt hashing algorithm) and staking (at 1.5% annual interest), but with the release of version 2.0 in December 2015 Crypto Bullion became a pure proof-of-stake coin (at an annual interest of 2%). It has a block interval of 65 seconds and a difficulty-retarget every 2 blocks. Crypto Bullion's goal is to become a universally-accepted digital asset with all of the properties of gold - portable, divisible, fungible, scarce, durable, non-consumable, and a store of wealth. Original announcement.
30. Digitalcoin (DGC) (78)
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.

Two percent of the total coin supply were pre-mined and used for promotions, giveaway, bounties, development and long-term support of the project. Original announcement.
36. Fluttercoin (FLT) (96)
Fluttercoin (FLT) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in March 2014. Although it uses a hybrid Proof-of-Work/Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism, the project has introduced a new mining rewards system named Proof-of-Transaction (FLT coins are mined simply by receiving or sending them) which should act as an economic stimulus designed to gain merchants' acceptance and make the coin circulate in the digital economy. Some of the more interesting features incorporated in the custom Fluttercoin wallet include Flutterspeed (speeds up the download of the blockchain on new installations), Fluttershare (ability to share stake rewards with another address), Block Browser (to browse the blockchain from within the wallet) and encrypted messaging. Original announcement.
37. SaffronCoin (SFR) (99)
38. DNotes (NOTE) (103)
DNotes (NOTE) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in February 2014. Compared to its parent, it has only a few minor modifications, such as the use of Kimoto's Gravity Well (patched for the "time warp" issue), a total supply of 500 million coins, and an annual 5% block reward reduction for coin miners. Besides developing the cryptocurrency, the project has also launched a number of unique initiatives; this includes attempts to attract more women to the cryptocurrency world by giving away free DNotes, programs offering solutions for student debt, and provisions of various savings incentives for the unbanked, children, and retirees. Original announcement.
39. Megacoin (MEC) (106)
Megacoin (MEC) is a decentralised and open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in 2013. Megacoin's total coin cap is limited to 42 million, with the number 42 derived from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy which identifies 42 as the "answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything". The second interesting characteristic of Megacoin is the use of "Kimoto's Gravity Well" (a conceptual model of the gravitational field surrounding a body in space) as the mining difficulty re-adjustment algorithm. Original announcement.
40. NobleCoin (NOBL) (107)
41. Carboncoin (CARBON) (109)
Carboncoin (CARBON) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Luckycoin (which was, in turn, forked from Litecoin) in February 2014. It is designed to fund the planting of millions of trees worldwide to address the problem of soaring emissions. The project's goal is to eliminate coin mining for profit, an aspect of Bitcoin responsible for harming the environment through excessive and unproductive use of electricity and resources. Original announcement.
42. FastCoin (FST) (110)
FastCoin (FST) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in May 2013. Like its parent, FastCoin is a proof-of-work coin that uses scrypt as its hashing algorithm. However, it differs from Litecoin in that it deploys a custom difficulty adjustment mechanism to prevent "instamining", a process of rapid coin generation by insiders and very early adopters. It was launched with a zero pre-mine. FastCoin features a block generation target rate of 12 seconds with just 4 confirmations required, making it one of the fastest cryptocurrencies on the market in terms of block confirmation times (48 seconds). Original announcement.
43. Zeitcoin (ZEIT) (112)
44. CasinoCoin (CSC) (113)
