Auroracoin (AUR)

16,500 satoshi
(Source: Bittrex, 19 minutes ago)

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.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 55 (6.1), 6 months: 52 (7.2), 3 months: 55 (7.6), 4 weeks: 27 (5.9), 1 week: 26 (5.8)
