SaffronCoin (SFR) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in April 2014. The project improves on the original in that it enables its proof-of-work mining process using five different hashing algorithms (the default SHA-256, along with BLAKE, Grøstl, scrypt and X11), thus making it more difficult for large crypto-mining farms to monopolise the coin-generation process. SaffronCoin's second most interesting feature is its multi-tasking wallet client. Developed using the WebKit web browser engine, the wallet provides not only standard payment features, but also standard web content, a tweet box, data feeds from cryptocurrency exchanges, built-in IRC chat, and a number of other innovative features.
