1. PIVX (PIVX) (3)
2. BitShares (BTS) (5)
BitShares (BTS) is a brand of open-source software based on the as blockchain technology as used by Bitcoin. Unlike bitcoins, which do not produce any income for their owners, BitShare can be used to launch Decentralized Autonomous Companies (DACs) which issue shares, produce profits and distribute profits to shareholders. As such, BitShares is about making profitable companies that people want to own shares in, thus creating return for the shareholders. The first DAC launched by this proces was called BitSharesX, a decentralized asset exchange based in Hong Kong. BitShares was originally launched under the name of ProtoShares (PTS); it was later renamed to BitShares (PTS) and "reloaded" in November 2014 by merging several products into BitShares (BTS).
3. CLAMS (CLAM) (6)
Clams (CLAM) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Blackcoin in May 2014. Clams were initially distributed to 3,208,032 BTC, LTC and DOGE addresses based on the 12 May 2014 snapshots of the three respective blockchains. Each of these address received 4.60545574 CLAM. 63,381 addresses have been dug comprising 291,898.39 CLAM. If all the distributed CLAM were dug up, the total money supply would be 15,009,015.13. There was no proof-of-work stage and the network is secured by proof-of-stake only. Original announcement.
4. Primecoin (XPM) (10)
5. Cardano (ADA) (12)
Cardano is an open-source project creating a decentralised platform which includes a cryptographic currency unit called ADA (equaling one million Lovelaces) and which allows complex, programmable transfers of value. The principal software stack powering the platfrom is called "Cardano Settlement Layer" (cardano-sl, written in Haskel), while its graphical desktop wallet client is known as "Daedalus". Cardano's ADA is a proof-of-stake cryptocurrency which uses a custom algorithm called "Ouroboros". The software is developed by Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) and the entire project is managed by Cardano Foundation, a non-profit organisation.
6. Reddcoin (RDD) (13)
7. Stellar Lumen (XLM) (14)
8. BlackCoin (BLK) (15)
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. MintCoin (MINT) (27)
MintCoin (MINT) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Novacoin in February 2014. The project used the proof-of-work mechanism to generate coins by "mining" during the first five weeks of its existence before becoming a pure proof-of-stake cryptocurrency. The "staking" process uses a variable interest rate at 20% the first year. After that it decreases by 5% per year until the 4th year when it reaches a constant annual interest rate of 5%. Since the vast majority of the coins are and will be generating by "staking", it is considered an energy-efficient coing, compared to Bitcoin and other proof-of-work cryptocurrencies. Original announcement.
10. Lisk (LSK) (29)
11. Omni (OMNI) (30)
12. Stratis (STRAT) (32)
13. Factom (FCT) (41)
Factom (FCT) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency platform launched in September 2015. Unlike Bitcoin whose blockchain is used for currency transactions only, Factom comes with an enhanced blockchain that allows anyone to add new entries to the blockchain, including contracts and agreements in the form of scripts and applications. In other words, Factom creates an additional data layer (a record-keeping system) on top of the blockchain. As an incentive to maintain the network and to distribute the blockchain, Factom issues "factoids", or tokens that can be traded on cryptocurrency exchanges. Original announcement.
14. Coin Magi (XMG) (44)
Coin Magi (XMG) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Peercoin in September 2014. It is a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake cryptocurrency that allows coin generation by both mining and staking. Its mining method uses a unique M7M hashing algorithm, along with a particularly designed block rewarding system. As such, mining can only be accomplished using standard CPUs, allowing anybody with modest hardware to participate in the coin generation process, while disallowing large mining farms from taking part in mining. Original announcement.
15. Diamond (DMD) (45)
Diamond (DMD) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in July 2014. As a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake coin, it combines various interesting aspects of other popular cryptocurrency projects, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Novacoin, Luckycoin (random block feature) and Florincoin (support for transaction comments). Other features include very low transaction fees, steady coin supply at one diamond per block for eight years, and a limited number of total coins capped at just 4.38 million. Original announcement.
16. BitcoinDark (BTCD) (54)
BitcoinDark (BTCD) is a decentralized cryptocurrency, forked from NovaCoin in 2014, providing groundbreaking privacy and anonymity. It features two unique characteristics: Teleport, which allows for anonymous transfer of funds by cloning and exchanging standard denominations of currency, and Telepathy, which encrypts communication sent across the network and masks the other user's IP address. Unlike many other cryptocurrencies, BitcoinDark encourages ASIC mining (i.e. generating coins with specialist hardware), which is a much more energy efficient way of generating coins than CPU/GPU mining. Original announcement.
17. NavCoin (NAV) (57)
18. CloakCoin (CLOAK) (60)
CloakCoin (CLOAK) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in June 2014 and re-launched in October 2016 under a new management and based on Bitcoin Core. It was one of the first coins focusing on privacy and anonymity of transactions and this quest was further enhanced after the relaunch as the developers implemented an off-chain peer-to-peer coin mixing arrangement called Enigma, provided by a Tor-like routing system named CloakShield. CloakCoin is a pure proof-of-stake (PoS) cryptocurrency that offers an interest of 6% per annum on staked coins, but users are also eligible to a share in the network's 1.8% transaction fee for their support towards Enigma transactions. Original announcement.
19. NobleCoin (NOBL) (67)
20. Blocknet (BLOCK) (69)
Blocknet is a project attempting to create a peer-to-peer protocol between nodes on the blockchains of participating cryptocurrencies. Blocknet was initiated by XCurrency (XC), but it was later extended by several other cryptocurrency projects all of whom have representation on the Blocknet Foundation's Board. This groundbreaking initiative enables open-ended communication and delivery of services between users of participating cryptocurrencies, thus effectively uniting the community that has been fractured by hundreds of cryptocurrency projects. To maintain Blocknet's network and services, the project issues its own "tokens of value" as a reward to those who participate in maintaining a healthy network. This makes Blocknet (BLOCK) a proof-of-stake cryptocurrency which is actively traded on a number of popular altcoin exchanges. Original announcement.
21. StealthCoin (XST) (72)
22. EverGreenCoin (EGC) (75)
EverGreenCoin (EGC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin and inaugurated in December 2015. It started life as a proof-of-work (PoW) coin using the X15 spectrum of hashing algorithms for generating coins, but it was converted into a pure proof-of-stake (PoS) currency some six month after its launch. It offers a 7% annual interest on staked coins. EverGreenCoin's parameters make it a faster and more environmentally-friendly cryptocurrency than Bitcoin. Initial announcement.
23. VeriCoin (VRC) (80)
24. FIMKrypto (FIMK) (84)
FIMKrypto (FIMK) is an open-source cryptocurrency and payment network forked from (and compatible with) Nxt (NXT) in July 2014. It is intended as a national cryptocurrency of Finland, with a goal of offering all Finnish citizens a regular basic income. Besides being a modern cryptocurrency platform, FIMKrypto also provides numerous useful decentralised functions, such as direct transmissions of payments from person to person, strongly encrypted private messaging, and other features. As with most cryptocurrencies, nodes running the FIMK wallet software are eligible to compete for block rewards that are distributed automatically every 30 seconds. Original announcement.
25. Qora (QORA) (85)
26. BitSwift (SWIFT) (87)
BitSwift (SWIFT) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Novacoin and launched in October 2014. It is a pure proof-of-stake (PoS) coin, with the annual PoS interest set at 3%. The project's developers plans include, among other features, seamless integration with fiat currencies which would enable worldwide money transfers at zero cost. The BitSwift cryptocurrency and its blockchain run on the BlockNet platform. Original announcement.
27. Breakout Coin (BRK) (94)
Breakout Coin (BRK) is a product of Breakout Gaming which is a new, globally accessible online gaming entertainment company that plans to provide poker, sports wagering, casino games, fantasy sports, and other popular gaming options. The original currency, Breakout Coin, was later integrated into a unique multi-currency wallet system called "Breakout Chain". While Breakout Coin (BRK) remains the principal currency for Breakout Gaming, there are also Breakout Stake (BRX) and Sister Coin (SIS) which serve to secure the ledger through a combined proof-of-stake (PoS) and proof-of-work (PoW) model. The PoS system uses Breakout Stake as the stake, minting Breakout Coin. As such, the Breakout Stake money supply will never increase, whereas the Breakout Coin money supply increases at a rate of approximately 5% per year. Breakout Chain’s PoW system produces Sister Coin as an incentive to miners. Original announcement.
28. NuBits (NBT) (97)
29. Nxt (NXT) (101)
30. Zeitcoin (ZEIT) (102)
31. BitCrystals (BCY) (103)
BitCrystals (BCY) are digital assets acting as both the game-fuel and the premium in-game currency in EverdreamSoft's Spells of Genesis game. BitCrystals were issued in February 2015 in a limited supply of 100 million units, 70% of which were offered for purchase during the initial BitCrystals crowdsale. BitCrystals can be traded on the Counterparty blockchain or used to purchase blockchain-based cards, playable within Moonga and Spells of Genesis. As an asset issued on the Counterparty (XCP) platform, the project does not provide an independent wallet, although a client is available from Google's Chrome Web Store as an extension for the Chrome and Chromium web browsers. Original announcement.
32. OKCash (OK) (106)
33. Rimbit (RBT) (107)
34. ARCHcoin (ARCH) (109)

It is a pure proof-of-stake coin which pays a variable interest rate of between 3 - 20%, depending on the state of the ARCHcoin network. The project's main goal is to develop a centralised business model on top of a decentralised blockchain - by offering a platfrom for various investment niches (ARCHprojects) and allowing integration of advanced blockchain services. Original announcement.
35. SolarCoin (SLR) (112)
36. Capricoin (CPC) (113)
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.
37. I/O Digital Currency (IOC) (117)
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.
