Vertcoin was never pre-mined before its release in 2014 and is Multipool resistant due to its innovative Scrypt-N hashing algorithm. Vertcoin is currently the 14th-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization,which is around $4,608,294 USD as of 17 May 2014.
Vertcoin was released on January 8, 2014 by “Bushido“. Bushido has worked for major companies such as Accenture and Microsoft as a developer, and has returned to education as a masters student at Johns Hopkins. Vertcoin was a fork of the Litecoin-Qt client, differing primarily by having an adaptive proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm to help keep the currency decentralised and more stable. In using a different algorithm, the use of multi-pools to mine the currency is not profitable.
A 2014 released International Business Times article mentions Vertcoin as a potential Bitcoin successor. The article notes that it, “Hopes to offer an alternative. By taking the foundations of Bitcoin and making some adjustments, Vertcoin punishes miners who use powerful machines and work together in ‘pools’ to monopolise the mining market.”
Bushido also created a Vertcoin Pool List on Vertcoin.com, which automatically refreshes every two minutes. Smaller pools are shown at the top of the list and larger pools at the bottom of the list. This essentially “prevent[s] a miner jumping to the biggest pool.
