How do you convert Curecoins to USD?

So... I've googled, I've searched through forum posts, I've looked everywhere.... I've even looked through every post on this subreddit and nowhere am I finding a simple and step-by-step guide of how you actually cash out your curecoins for USD (or any other 'standard' currency).
After I put up this post, I'll keep looking and probably sign up for coinbase, because I know you can sell Bitcoins on there.. so maybe I can convert the curecoins to bitcoins on coinbase, and then sell them?
So, is it possible to cash out your curecoins to USD on a website, for their current market value, NOT involving personal/local trades?
Thanks!

Should PoS never have been invented?

I mean couldn't we just have started with PoS and avoid all the energy waste?

Look at all that waste, but hopefully we can use all that hardware for something (like curecoin / [email protected]) when ETH and later BTC progress to PoS.

What are your opinions to this?

I guess it was more interesting for people to dig for gold in the beginning but I think we could have made PoS just as attractive.

Anyway can I validate bitcoin transactions without mining them?
Can I use my PC for that?

New to curecoin, wallet question.

Joined when I saw the pcmasterrace folding post. Then saw curecoin and I was interested. Folding for 5 days now, got my first 0,5 curecoin in my wallet on pc. I have looked a little bit into thing during the bitcoin hype but I don't know much about cryptos. The app CoinPayments is a seperate app and has nothing to do with the windows application if I understand correctly? I would have to send to CoinPayments if I want my half curecoin there? Are there other wallets available for curecoin? Looked at freewallet but people said it is a scam and do app like those support curecoin?
Thanks, think curecoin is a great idea!

How far can you take this concept?

Bitcoin is an accidental decentralized financial incentive that burns up 0.3% of the world's electricity. Its proof of work system is a mechanism designed to solve the double-spending problem and encourage a broad distribution of new supply and hardly achieves either goal. So, a few years later came Gridcoin, which proved that it's possible to take the cryptocurrency concept and create an intentional financial incentive for the devotion of processing power to scientific research. This succeeded and currently we have a reward of a few hundred dollar per day worth of coins, distributed evenly across a subset of participants in BOINC.
Not long after Gridcoin we saw Solarcoin, which takes the same idea, but has a centralized institute that distributes the token to people who participate. Gridcoin is not a fluke, as evidenced by the existence of foldingcoin and curecoin. Apparently you can create a token, decide rules on what sort of stuff you need to do to earn it and the system becomes a self-sustaining economic incentive for the sort of behavior it seeks to reward.
This is fascinating from an economic perspective and I won't be the first to point out that the success of cryptocurrency so far has flown in the face of quite a few untested assumptions that were taken for granted in economic circles. The thing I'm wondering here is: Why stop here?
The idea I have been entertaining in my head is if you can take the concept of a Proof of Stake cryptocurrency and create an innate mechanism that distributes new tokens to projects that effectively serve to sequester carbon dioxide. The distribution of new tokens would ideally be decided by voting of existing stakeholders, not unlike how in Gridcoin we can all vote on which BOINC projects we believe deserve to be whitelisted.
I think this would be profoundly useful, because there are broad similarities between the market failure Gridcoin addresses and the market failure of greenhouse gas sequestration. We all ultimately benefit from the fact that people use their computer for BOINC, but until Gridcoin we had no mechanism that rewards people for their activity. Similarly, we all need other people to work on sequestering carbon dioxide, but the people who wish to do such a thing can't do so, because they have no economic incentive to do so.
My idea depends on one big assumption of course, which is that Gridcoin and coins like Gridcoin are not just speculative bubbles, but as of yet under-the-radar economic phenomena, in the same sense as Bitcoin remained under the radar for years. The thing that leaves me optimistic however, is the bizarre emergent economic incentive created by Bitcoin. An anonymous guy can write some code, publish it on the Internet and a few years later, governments are forced to intervene and invent new laws because the accidental economic incentive enshrined in the code has gobbled up 0.3% of the world's electricity supply. If such a bizarre economic incentive can emerge effectively by accident, surely when we actually properly plan all of this through, the sky must be the limit?

Gridcoin: My next investment

Back in march 2013 I invested in Bitcoin when they were valued at 90 dollars per coin. It changed my life in ways I didn't quite anticipate at the time. It was a gamble, but it was an informed gamble. I recognized the revolutionary potential of this technology and realized it was tremendously undervalued if it could accomplish the functions I anticipated it would fulfill.
I don't think it's bad to pursue wealth and success in life. At the end of the day, the man who set up the Pineapple fund with his Bitcoin profits accomplished something meaningful that will outlast him. A cynic who stands by on the sidelines accomplishes very little. It's good and healthy to strife for success and to take risks.
I'm perfectly comfortable accumulating wealth, because I live in a society where we tend to waste our money. The money spent in Britain spends on fireworks on New Years Eve would be sufficient to solve half of the world's unmet iodine need. Wealth would allow me to pursue goals that I consider to be valuable in life.
When it comes to investing in cryptocurrencies, I see a few common mistakes. A friend of mine who became a millionaire through his investments tends to agree with me on this matter. An important mistake I notice is that people jump on the bandwagon, in response to prominent companies or investors embracing a digital asset. When a billionaire or a fortune 500 company joins a project, it should be clear that it has limited growth potential left. Instead, what should make you enthusiastic when you find yourself thinking "why is nobody else talking about this?". That's how you recognize you might have found a precious underappreciated gem.
The important thing to comprehend is that you should look at the difference between the current valuation of a project (its market cap) and what you consider a justified valuation would be. This is what I did with Bitcoin long ago. I looked at its valuation and compared this to the size of different markets that exist in our society.
I'm not interested in investing in something that I don't genuinely believe could increase in value by two orders of magnitude. Bitcoin still has room for growth, but there exist much smaller niche technologies today, that stand much better chances of rising dramatically in value. I don't expect to see Bitcoin valued at 1 million dollar per coin anyday soon.
On the other hand, there exist currencies that I anticipate do have tremendous room for growth. Consider the following issue: Bitcoin and similar currencies use up vast amounts of electricity. Now imagine the introduction of a competing cryptocurrency, that similarly uses large amounts of electricity to reward new coins to people, but the electricity is used entirely for scientific research that delivers a genuine benefit to humanity.
What kind of pricetag would you put on this? This is a difficult question to answer. Cryptocurrencies that deliver no clear added value over other currencies are valued at billions of dollars. From my perspective, it seems perfectly plausible that given sufficient media attention, a cryptocurrency that delivers a measurable benefit to humanity could end up with a similar valuation.
The cryptocurrency I refer to here, Gridcoin, is valued at roughly 60 million dollar as of speaking. The scenario I envision as plausible is one where it will eventually valued at 6 billion dollar. I anticipate that a number of different factors would contribute to this development. To start with, the energy wasted by Bitcoin is probably going to continue to rise in the months ahead, even if the rise of Bitcoin's price stops, because the deployment of new mining hardware lags behind the increase in price. Mining bitcoin currently delivers roughly seven times more money than it costs in electricity. We can thus expect electricity use to continue increasing.
I thus don't have to set up an expensive marketing campaign for Gridcoin, because the media will do it for me, in cahoots with Bitcoin. In fact, I'm amazed by how little attention has been paid in the media to Gridcoin and its sisters Curecoin and Foldingcoin so far. As long as Bitcoin continues to succeed, there will be increasing public demand for a cryptocurrency that does not waste our scarce natural resources to deliver us nothing of any genuine value. The increasing demand will raise its prices, which will then deliver Gridcoin from its current obscurity. Gridcoin's main perk is the fact that it is a response to a looming crisis that most people do not yet genuinely appreciate.
What if Bitcoin fails to succeed? That would be a very joyous event indeed, as it would create an opportunity for alternative currencies to flourish. In addition, it would reveal the risk of investing in one of the most prominent cryptocurrencies, as these are the currencies that have relatively little growth potential left. The failure of Bitcoin is not the failure of cryptocurrency. It's the failure of a prototype placed under excessive demand. A thousand flowers will bloom from its corpse.
What is the most severe risk that faces my investment? The most severe risk is found in the fact that people don't per definition care whether their investment delivers a genuine contribution to society. ICO's that have no actual product are known to deliver the highest rates of returns. A system that's better does not per definition gain more followers. To me this represents the main risk of my investment: I fear that most people lack the cognitive capacity needed to appreciate it. The amount of money I have invested is thus limited to a few hundred euro.
There are some risks that critics might point out that are not genuinely relevant. To start with, consider centralization. Gridcoin is dependent on the BOINC network that's used to solve scientific problems with computing power. Someone could harm the BOINC network and harm Gridcoin as a consequence, although Gridcoin would survive simply as a proof of stake currency in that scenario. The reality remains however, that nobody cares whether a currency is centralized or not, it has no clear impact on its valuation. Ripple succeeds despite the fact that it's nearly entirely owned by a centralized institute. Bitcoin has never seen a dip in its value that can be traced back to the market's fear over the centralization of mining power into the hands of a number of wealthy Chinese individuals.
I accept the possibility that I will see periods where I'm down 90% or more on the money I have invested, as cryptocurrencies unequal wealth distribution makes them highly volatile. I have had similar experiences with Bitcoin, but I simply sat it out. I also find it difficult to predict the near-term evolution of the price. My intention is thus to continue to buy more Gridcoin in the months ahead, provided the project's valuation stays beneath 100 million dollar.
I see the eventual rise in value of Gridcoin as a near inevitability. There are a number of reasons for this. As mentioned earlier, Gridcoin delivers a meaningful contribution to society. It solves a genuine problem: How do we reward people for donating their computing power to scientific research? The answer to that question is the added value Gridcoin delivers to society. In addition to this, in contrast to similarly valued coins, Gridcoin has an active developer community. The amount of effort put into this currency by competent people is akin to that for currencies valued at billions of dollars. The fact that this coin delivers a contribution to society attracts intelligent and competent people, which will then have the effect of attracting everyone else.
My recommendation is for other people to invest money in this currency as well. Besides the simple fact that you potentially stand to gain a lot of money from investing, your investment creates an economic incentive for people to migrate away from solving pointless computer programs towards using their tools to perform scientific research. This is a goal that I find myself eager to contribute to.

Let's discuss consensus algorithms, as that's the most important basis for a cryptocurrency

Let's all work on this one as if it's a Wiki. Correct me in the comments and I'll update the post and reference you as a thank you.
An interesting investment strategy (which I dislike) might be choosing one of the best cryptocurrency for each consensus algorithm, and investing in a ratio comparable to it's market capitalization.
The most important properties of a consensus algorithm would be:
There's also the percentage of attackers that it could resist, but I'll skip that part. Ripple is the worse by far when it comes to that, PoW, PoS and dPoS are the best)
First off, I think that we should only care about consensus algorithms that are suited for a public cryptocurrency. I see no reason as to why we should care about permissioned cryptocurrencies (where you need approval to mine/stake). But since I might be wrong - and please illuminate me if I am - I'll write about those as well here.
So...
Consensus algorithms for permissionless cryptocurrencies
  • PoW (proof of work): Bitcoin, Ethereum, ...
    [D] high [R] average [C] no
    huge disadvantage in that it consumes too much electricity therefore I don't see more than 1-2 cryptocurrencies surviving with this
    special flavors:
    • useful PoW (where the work actually does something useful for the world): Curecoin, Primecoin, Gridcoin
 
  • PoS (proof of stake): Waves, NXT, ...
    [D] high [R] low [C] no
    special flavors:
    • PoI (proof of importance, how active you are matters as well, not just the size of the stake, not worth discussing much as it can easily be gamed): NEM
    • Casper with sharding (both sharding and casper are under active development): none yet, [C] yes
 
  • DAG (directed acyclic graph): Byteball (directed through - currently centralized - witnesses, but this will easily be changed when the distribution is over), IOTA (directed through a - currently centralized - coordinator, should be directed only through PoW in the future, if it is indeed possible)
    [D] high [R] too early to tell [C] yes
    big advantage in that you make the transaction directly, there's no intermediary in the memory pool
 
  • dPoS (delegated proof of stake): Lisk, Bitshares, ...
    [D] average [R] low [C] no
    in my humble opinion this is the best, even though God (aka Vitalik Buterin) disagrees. I don't have in my portfolio any cryptocurrency that uses it though
Consensus algorithms for permissioned cryptocurrencies
  • PBFT (practical byzantine fault tolerance): Hyperledger Fabric
    [D] low [R] low [C] no
    all the nodes have to know all the nodes for this to work, the block confirmation process is done in three steps that require a lot of communication
    special flavors:
    • dBFT (delegated blabla): Neo (not completed, might allow concurrency in the end)
    • SCP (Stellar Consensus Protocol): Stellar, BOScoin
 
 
  • Ripple: Ripple
    [D] low [R] average [C] no
    for Ripple itself, the cryptocurrency, [D] is extremely low, but forking their code might solve that (basically creating another cryptocurrency with the Ripple consensus mechanism)
I need help categorizing these
  • ???: Maidsafe
    [D] ??? [R] ??? [C] yes
Note that there are also leeches, colored coins or metacoins, that use the consensus algorithms of other cryptocurrencies in order to function. For example Factom.

No more work units

As of right now (21:00 GMT) and as it was expected after the recent onslaught of (rented?) Gpu power [email protected] could't keep up and ceased the distribution of work units altogether.
This means two things. One is that we already reached the upper limits of what curecoin can do (attract more folders). Second is that that all the profits would be taken by the big fish, given that from now on it would be a race to whom will get the most work units once released.
Meaning in turn that those 10-12 players would "sip" all the WUs from all others. Here's the post that doomed non-professional folders: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=603757.msg22644706#msg22644706
Now anyone who wishes to make a quick buck rents and takes the profits of the dedicated folders. It's basically theft where the rental wins the most (against everybody.else).
Shortly after that post I asked to implement certain measures to protect small folders. My point was not to throw away the big players, but rather stop the rented gpu scam that goes around right now (basically the rental service gets most of the profits at this point).
My recommendation was as follows: pay only the equivalent of 1million ppd to any given IP and/or username associated with said ip.
For each added day 100 thousand more PPD would be credited (i.e the pay ceiling moves up by 100 thousands PPD). Meaning that one has to fold for 200 days before being allowed to have been credited the equivalent of 20 million PPD. Also the rentals that are around would be hurt as they probably use the same static IPs, so only very little would be actually credited by by folding.
Back in October I even allowed for "old" players to stay, but the way things gone, I actually support for the counter to be reset for all at this point. Old players should only be allowed 10million per ip and/or username and counting.
It's not that hard to implement. You basically match usernames and/or IPs and credit them according to the lower value of the time of the crediting...
We either support the small folders, or see this project die, simple as that. Because by the time all these rentals go the way of the dodo all the small players would have jumped ship and given that Bitcoin is not necessary to stay up forever, once you lose the small players, you lost the battle too...
tl;dr: We have to implement a moving pay ceiling so that to combat the "rented GPUs" scam that is basically killing us, the small folders that cannot cover electricity... The curecoin team should strive for loyalty not naked high PPD.
PS: Sorry for the emotionally charged post, I don't want to say "I told you so" ... but "I told you so".

Just switched to this team and never done cryptocurrency before. I have some questions.

Greetings. I recently decided to switch from Team 50959 (a.k.a. Reddit) to Curecoin's Team (a.k.a. 224497) after watching AdoredTV's YouTube video called "Crypto - Fad, Scam or the Future of Currency?". What I took away from the video was that cryptocurrency is something one should invest in within one's risk tolerances. I tried to get into Bitcoin when it came out around 2010, but when I installed a miner on my i7-920/HD 4870 machine, the temperatures scared me off from cryptocurrency completely. I've been doing FaH since about 2006 for various teams and enjoy knowing that my extra processing power goes to looking for cures for disease. Curecoin/FoldingCoin seems like a good fit for my risk tolerances. I'm still using FaH to help researchers find cures and making a little cryptocurrency on the side. I don't fold 24/7 as I turn my PC off when I leave the house or go to bed largely due to the questionable quality of electricity in the area and adverse weather taking out my last machine that I left running. I'm assuming the R9 280 in my current machine is good enough for this situation.
I more or less followed the following guides to get set up:
The only screw up I had during set up was that I initially started folding for the Curecoin Team with a user name made from my Curecoin Wallet receiving address as I didn't realize what to do with the FoldingCoin receiving address. I corrected that as soon as I discovered it.
So on to the questions:
  1. I'm set up under username "kwerboom_ALL_1L83cGY1wM9qfMsptnzqdCxmPty2VNTcym". I have a wallet at https://wallet.counterwallet.io. I'm assuming that FoldingCoin gets sent to "1L83cGY1wM9qfMsptnzqdCxmPty2VNTcym". How often and when does that happen?
  2. I saw an option inside my desktop Curecoin Wallet to encrypt and I set a passphrase. I set a passphrase for it because I also set a passphrase for counterwallet. Was setting a passphrase a good idea?
  3. Curecoin Wallet says I'm not "staking" because I don't have "mature coins". What does that mean?
  4. What happens next? What can I do now that I'm making Curecoin? What do I do with cryptocurrency once I have enough? There are a lot of beginners guides to cryptocurrency, but nothing on what to do once everything is up and running.

Proposal for a fully decentralized blockchain and proof-of-work algorithm for solving NP-complete problems

arXiv:1708.09419
Date: 2017-09-02
Author(s): Carlos G. Oliver, Alessandro Ricottone, Pericles Philippopoulos

Link to Paper


Abstract
We propose a proof-of-work algorithm that rewards blockchain miners for using computational resources to solve NP-complete puzzles. The resulting blockchain will publicly store and improve solutions to problems with real world applications while maintaining a secure and fully functional transaction ledger.

Do you think Bitcoin can eventually move to a useful form of proof of work?

Currently, Bitcoin miners compete to solve SHA hashes to find a new block. This electricity effectively goes wasted, which is the main complaint people have against Bitcoin. There are other coins out there, like Gridcoin and Curecoin, that generate new coins by making miners do useful work like protein folding with their equipment instead. This way, the "mining" helps solve real world problems and the reward given for the work is based on real work, rather than busywork.
Do you think Bitcoin (Cash) could eventually hardfork again, to transition to a more useful form of work, or do you think this should/could not happen?

Let's discuss consensus algorithms, as that's the most important basis for a cryptocurrency

Let's all work on this one as if it's a Wiki. Correct me in the comments and I'll update the post and reference you as a thank you.
An interesting investment strategy (which I dislike) might be choosing one of the best cryptocurrency for each consensus algorithm, and investing in a ratio comparable to it's market capitalization.
The most important properties of a consensus algorithm would be:
There's also the percentage of attackers that it could resist, but I'll skip that part. Ripple is the worse by far when it comes to that, PoW, PoS and dPoS are the best)
First off, I think that we should only care about consensus algorithms that are suited for a public cryptocurrency. I see no reason as to why we should care about permissioned cryptocurrencies (where you need approval to mine/stake). But since I might be wrong - and please illuminate me if I am - I'll write about those as well here.
So...
Consensus algorithms for permissionless cryptocurrencies
  • PoW (proof of work): Bitcoin, Ethereum, ...
    [D] high [R] average [C] no
    huge disadvantage in that it consumes too much electricity therefore I don't see more than 1-2 cryptocurrencies surviving with this
    special flavors:
    • useful PoW (where the work actually does something useful for the world): Curecoin, Primecoin, Gridcoin
 
  • PoS (proof of stake): Waves, NXT, ...
    [D] high [R] low [C] no
    special flavors:
    • PoI (proof of importance, how active you are matters as well, not just the size of the stake, not worth discussing much as it can easily be gamed): NEM
    • Casper with sharding (both sharding and casper are under active development): none yet, [C] yes
 
  • DAG (directed acyclic graph): Byteball (directed through - currently centralized - witnesses, but this will easily be changed when the distribution is over), IOTA (directed through a - currently centralized - coordinator, should be directed only through PoW in the future, if it is indeed possible)
    [D] high [R] too early to tell [C] yes
    big advantage in that you make the transaction directly, there's no intermediary in the memory pool
 
  • dPoS (delegated proof of stake): Lisk, Bitshares, ...
    [D] average [R] low [C] no
    in my humble opinion this is the best, even though God (aka Vitalik Buterin) disagrees. I don't have in my portfolio any cryptocurrency that uses it though
Consensus algorithms for permissioned cryptocurrencies
  • PBFT (practical byzantine fault tolerance): Hyperledger Fabric
    [D] low [R] low [C] no
    all the nodes have to know all the nodes for this to work, the block confirmation process is done in three steps that require a lot of communication
    special flavors:
    • dBFT (delegated blabla): Neo (not completed, might allow concurrency in the end)
    • SCP (Stellar Consensus Protocol): Stellar, BOScoin
 
 
  • Ripple: Ripple
    [D] low [R] average [C] no
    for Ripple itself, the cryptocurrency, [D] is extremely low, but forking their code might solve that (basically creating another cryptocurrency with the Ripple consensus mechanism)
I need help categorizing these
  • ???: Maidsafe
    [D] ??? [R] ??? [C] yes
Note that there are also leeches, colored coins or metacoins, that use the consensus algorithms of other cryptocurrencies in order to function. For example Factom.

Question about converting coins on Bittrex.

If I transfer 1 bitcoin from an exchange such as coinbase to my bitcoin wallet in bittrex and then transfer my bitcoin to curecoin in bittrex, is it instant or will it complete when someone buys curecoin on bittrex?

Cryptocurrencies are a revolution

Many of us are probably being exposed to daily fud from mainstream media.
'Bitcoin is a ponzi!'
'Cryptocurrencies are a scam!'
'Warren Buffet says cryptos won't last!'
'Millennials playing with fake money!'
This cannot be farther from the truth.
Cryptocurrencies exist as encrypted forms of software which can be traded. They are public, cannot be counterfeited, and can be fully traced. It is excellent for building trust with regards to transferring funds. There is no need for middle men, and your funds belong to you. You have the freedom to choose what to do with them, with banks they hold most of your funds and you are allowed only a certain percent.
Imagine a nation where the government had its transactions on a public blockchain, visible and accountable to the people. The levels of corruption which exist today in governments would fall to 0. If they didn't, there would be a revolution.
Cryptocurrencies are not dependent on the petro-currencies, its wars or the banks that have caused havoc on the earth. Most of us were teenagers or children when 9/11 happened, and the invasions that occurred after. As we grew older we realized that many of the wars were not fought for any noble reason but for the petro-currency. The very petro-currency which serves elites, destroying social programs. The very petro-currency which destroyed the middle class to make China rich. The very petro-currency which destroyed the Middle East and has spawned generations of jihadist armies. None of this was for us but for a few select people. Most of us did not benefit from this. The final nail in the coffin for many of us were the bank bailouts, clearly the government did not care about us. And the government was run by banks.
Cryptocurrencies are not tied to shady politicians and their bullshit shenanigans, not yet. It is a far more democratic wealth sharing system than the fiat system we have now. They aren't only being built for transferring wealth, but for a whole myriad of things. Curecoin helps fold proteins, powsnc/buzz are a growing list of green coins, smart contracts will make deals a lot faster. For many years I felt powerless about the monumental issues facing our world, issues which governments did nothing more than to pay lip service to. To be a part of coins, investing in them, made me feel that change was achievable.
People say crypto has no 'intrinsic value'? Value is given by humans, the only real thing of value in the world is our ecosystem which we need to survive. Which banks and petro-currencies have spent many years destroying to make money for a few elites.
The fact is the mainstream media is nothing more than a joke and spew shit to sway the masses. The elites know that cryptos are a far stronger threat because it seeks to democratize power and wealth, which is against everything they stand for. How the governments of the world deal with crypto is yet to be seen, but this will be more than 'gainz' and 'lamboz'.
This is a way for us to combine technology, finance and social sciences to improve the world. A way for our generation who was basically robbed of any wealth, jobs or chances, to claim our stake again. A way to maybe, just maybe, save the environment which sustains us. The deeper you get into crypto, the more you realize it's not as much about the gainz but about building a newer, better world.
This isn't a bubble about to burst. It's a new world.

Altcoins aiming to become The world currency to replace all others

I think cryptocurrencies have a chance of not only becoming big, but also replacing Paypal along with even fiat currencies such as $ and €.
Apart from super fast transaction speed, low or zero fees, optional privacy, ease of use, and a large enough quantity of coins to allow for microtransactions (even for an altcoin worth $1 quadrillion in market cap), I think it's vital that a contender for an altcoin "universal single currency" for the very long term allow for companies and average people alike to have a single username / address (such as an email address) to send money from or receive money to. I should never have to change this address.
What altcoins are most well-positioned to become this ideal currency?
I have a shortlist below, but I'd be interested in any other altcoins you might think of:
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, IOTA, NEM, Litecoin, Dash, NEO, Ethereum Classic, OmiseGo, Monero, Qtum, Stratis, Waves, Zcash, TenX, EOS, Lisk, STEEM, BitShares, Iconomi, Augur, Bytecoin, Golem, MaidSafeCoin, Siacoin, Basic Attention Token, Factom, Stellar Lumens, Byteball, Dogecoin, Gnosis, Ark , Decred, Ardor, Monaco, DigiByte, Nxt, PIVX, Bancor, Storj, AdEx, Decent, BitcoinDark, Asch, Emercoin, Blocknet, Melon, TokenCard, Counterparty, Peercoin, Verge, ReddCoin, ZCoin, LBRY Credits, Namecoin, CloakCoin, Vertcoin, NAV Coin, ZenCash, GridCoin, Karmacoin, Primecoin, Curecoin, Quark, MaxCoin, Mintcoin, ZClassic, ShadowCash, NuBits, Hirocoin
