|CryptoCoin.com: Viacoin (VIA)
Viacoin (VIA) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in July 2014. The project's primary goal is to create a blockchain protocol, called "ClearingHouse", which would allow the building of fully decentralized exchanges and issuing of new currencies, as well as asset tracking, betting, digital voting, reputation management and going as far as allowing to form the basis of fully decentralized marketplaces. According to the project's management, these kind of services (or "sidechains") often face resistance from core Bitcoin developers when attempting to buil them on top of Bitcoin's own blockchain - hence the reason for launching the new cryptocoin. Viacoin's launch was accompanied by much attention in the media - especially because of the coin's explosive price growth (VIA reached market capitalisation of US$1 million in just a few days of trading), but also because the project was joined by Peter Todd, a well-known and experienced Bitcoin developer.
