The following cryptocoins match your criteria (sorted by popularity):
1. BlackCoin (BLK) (11)
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
2. BitcoinDark (BTCD) (52)
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.
3. MintCoin (MINT) (55)
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.
4. StealthCoin (XST) (70)
StealthCoin (XST) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Novacoin in July 2014. As its name suggests, the project attempts to provide a complete anonymity solution for cryptocurrencies. This is achieved by using a concept called StealthAddress, a cryptographic blockchain obfuscation technique where innumerable destination addresses can be created from each public receiving address; the destination addresses can not be linked to each other or to the public receiving address. Another interesting feature of the cryptocurrency is StealthText, a multi-platform anonymous cryptographic SMS transaction sending technology. StealthCoin has a fair distribution with nearly four hours of low block rewards, a small premine of 1%, and the long-term energy efficiency of proof-of-stake minting. Original announcement.
5. Orbitcoin (ORB) (83)
Orbitcoin (ORB) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in July 2013 as a fork of Novacoin. It is a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake coin with a total coin supply of just 3.77 million units. As such, orbitcoins can be both mined (using the NeoScrypt hashing algorithm) and minted (SHA-256) - both methods carry a fixed reward of 1 ORB. Other features of the cryptocurrency include: one-minute combined block target, time warp and "instamining" protection, advanced checkpointing against 51% attacks, and very low transaction fees. Original announcement.
6. BitSwift (SWIFT) (91)
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.
7. Crypto Bullion (CBX) (94)
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.
8. Rimbit (RBT) (104)
Rimbit (RBT) is a decentralised cryptocurrency launched in May 2014 as a fork of Novacoin. It is a pure proof-of-stake coin which is not generated by mining.
9. Capricoin (CPC) (110)
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.
10. 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.
11. HoboNickels (HBN) (126)
HoboNickels (HBN) is a decentralised cryptocurrency launched in September 2013 as a fork of Novacoin. It started as a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake (PoW/PoS) coin, but the PoW part was later phased out. The software offers a generous interest on staked coins ranging from 20% to 100% annually. 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.
