The following cryptocoins match your criteria (sorted by popularity):
1. NEM (XEM) (14)
NEM (XEM), which stands for New Economy Movement, is a decentralised cryptocurrency launched in March 2015. Inspired by the Nxt project, it was written from scratch in Java. The most interesting features of the cryptocurrency include its proof-of-importance (POI) algorithm (with the level of importance determined by how many coins a wallet stores and the number of transactions made to and from the wallet), an integrated P2P-secure multi-signature account and encrypted messaging system, and an Eigentrust++ reputation system which evaluates the quality of each client's contribution to maintain the network. NEM uses a client–server model where the NIS (NEM Infrastructure Server) runs independent of the NCC (NEM Community Client); the client is designed to run locally, in a web browser. Original announcement.
2. Sia (SC) (19)
Sia is an open-source, decentralised storage platform where users contribute disk storage from their computers to form a decentralized network. This disk storage space is available for rent. The Sia software provides a Bitcoin-like blockchain with smart contracts and strong encryption which ensures secure, reliable and private decentralised storage. As a payment medium the network uses Siacoin (SC), a proof-of-work (PoW) cryptocurrency, which can be generated by standard PoW mining (using the BLAKE hashing algorithm) or it can be purchased on a cryptocurrency exchange. Original announcement.
3. Ethereum (ETH) (36)
Ethereum (ETH), launched in July 2015 after a successful fund-raising period, is an open-source, decentralised cryptocurrency platform with "smart contracts", a set of scripts which run on top of Ethereum's blockchain and which automatically enforce contracts and agreements. It is also a development platform that makes it easy to build decentralised applications using Ethereum's own scripting language. The currency behind the Ethereum network is called "Ether". While the developers intended Ether to be just a token (rather than currency) to pay for computation and network maintenance, Ether (often referred to as "Ethereum") is actively traded on many digital currency exchanges. Original announcement.
4. Ethereum Classic (ETC) (40)
Ethereum Classic (ETC) is an open-source, decentralised cryptocurrency platform announced in July 2015 when the original Ethereum (ETH) blockchain was hard-forked following a security breach. Although the hard fork option was excessively debated and eventually approved by the Ethereum Foundation, many users felt that this move represented censorship and interference with a project that was supposed to be "decentralised". This disagreement brought about the birth of Ethereum Classic, a project whose main goal is to ensure the survival of the original Ethereum blockchain. As a result, the currency of Ethereum (called "ether") now exists in two forms, ETC and ETH, with both being actively traded on a number of cryptocurrency exchanges. The Original announcement.
5. YoCoin (YOC) (45)
YoCoin (YOC), also spelt as "Yocoin" or "YOcoin", is an open-source, decentralised cryptocurrency announced in December 2015 as a fork of Bitcoin. It is a proof-of-work coin which is generated by "mining", with scrypt as the hashing algorithm. The coin was launched publicly after a total of 15% of total supply was pre-mined; this was meant to be used only for giveaways, swap handling and YoCoin promotions. Original announcement.
6. Qora (QORA) (51)
Qora (QORA) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency launched in April 2015 and written from scratch, in Java. As a pure proof-of-stake cryptocurrency, Qora relied on initial public offering for the supply and distribution of the 10 billion coins in existence. Besides a unique wallet client, the cryptocurrency also offers a number of innovative features, such as password-protected wallets that can be regenerated from seeds, differential block times which allow addresses to generate blocks after just ten confirmations, an ability to register a key-value pair that can be used for various purposes and even traded, encrypted messenger service or data storage. Original announcement.
7. Factom (FCT) (55)
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.
8. Bata (BTA) (86)
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.
9. EverGreenCoin (EGC) (98)
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.
10. 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.
11. BitCrystals (BCY) (110)
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.
12. Steps (STEPS) (132)
Steps (STEPS) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency launched in September 2015 as a fork of Novacoin. It is a pure proof-of-stake (PoS) coin which pays a variable interest rate depending on the amount of "staked" coins; starting from block 60,100 the PoS interest will be set to 1%. The project's future plans include various additional services, such cryptocurrency trading platform, payment gateway and web wallet. Original announcement.
