The following cryptocoins match your criteria (sorted by popularity):
1. CannabisCoin (CANN) (38)
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. Emercoin (EMC) (41)
Emercoin (EMC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency created in late 2013 and based on technologies from Bitcoin, Namecoin and Peercoin. It is a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake (PoW/PoS) coin which uses the SHA-256 hashing algorithm to "mine" the coins and it also offers a 6% annual interest on staked coins. Emercoin implements the RFC3489 (STUN) protocol that uses geographically distributed servers for external IP discovery. Another interesting feature of Emercoin lies in its blockchain which provides a name-value storage system, including an integrated DNS server for *.coin, *.emc, *.lib, *.bazar domains. Original announcement.
3. NobleCoin (NOBL) (50)
NobleCoin (NOBL) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Florincoin in January 2014, but it was later re-based on Peercoin's source code. Registered as a business entity in Australia, the project's focus is on transparency, philanthropy and digital currency education as it attempts to become the forefront of international philanthropic efforts using cryptocurrencies for direct donations at near zero costs. Technically, NobleCoin is a pure proof-of-stake (PoS) cryptocurrency with the annual stakers' interest rate set at 8%. Original announcement.
4. Coin Magi (XMG) (60)
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.
5. Netcoin (NET) (76)
Netcoin (NET) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin and Peercoin in September 2013. Originally it was a pure proof-of-work currency with scrypt as its hashing algorithm, but later the project added a custom proof-of-stake mechanism which it called Personal Investment Rate (PIR). This was meant to increase Netcoin's adoption and savings rate as "stakers" were awarded NET coins based on the number of coins already present in their wallets. As a further incentive to keep the network healthy, Netcoin has implemented what it calls Open Wallet Incentive (OWI), a declining rate of reward for those wallet users who do not stake. Original announcement.
6. NuBits (NBT) (77)
NuBits (NBT) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency launched in late 2014 by Peercoin developer Jordan Lee. Unlike most other cryptocurrencies, NuBit coins are not mined, but rather issued by the project's shareholders whose primary goal is to maintain a 1:1 NuBit peg to the US dollar. In the case of hyperinflation of the US dollar, the shareholders can vote to peg NuBits to a different currency or to a basket of commodities. By creating more coins to keep prices down and by increasing interest rates on parked coins to restrict supply, the NuBit projects hopes to have created a stable cryptocurrency with limited volatility.
7. Novacoin (NVC) (91)
Novacoin (NVC) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Peercoin in February 2013. Like its parent, it uses a hybrid proof-of-work / proof-of-stake consensus protocol, with scrypt as its preferred hashing algorithm. Novacoin has no hard cap limit except for the 2 billion maximum that has been entered for coding purposes; this can be lifted in the future if needed. Original announcement (in Russian).
8. Paycoin (XPY) (102)
Paycoin (XPY) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin and launched in late 2014 by the founders of GAWMiner.com, a well-known provider of Bitcoin mining products. The project's ambition is to deliver a cryptocoin that would be accepted by the non-technical public and seamlessly integrated into existing payment systems, both online and in physical stores, via a physical debit card. The price of Paycoin plummeted shortly after its launch, leading to allegation of a "pump-and-dump" scheme and subsequent removal of Paycoin from a popular exchange.
9. Zeitcoin (ZEIT) (107)
Zeitcoin (ZEIT) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency launched in March 2014 as a fork of Peercoin. It began life as a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake coin that used the scrypt hashing algorithm for the initial generation of zeitcoins. Two months later the coin became a pure proof-of-stake (PoS) coin, initially paying an annual PoS interest of 25%, but this is expected to drop by 5% a year and eventually stay at 5% of annual PoS interest after year four. The coin features fast confirmation times of two minutes. A total of 1% of zeitcoins were pre-mined and allocated for bounties and software development. Original announcement.
