Beside Bitcoin, there are more than 3000 cryptocurrencies existing currently. To give you an easy overview, we got our Altcoin Watchlist (Alternative Cryptocurrencies – so all but Bitcoin). We monitor and support the currencies listed. So in our view these currencies have to biggest longterm potencial of them all – but as there are so many of them, theres no garantuee this list is complete. Please note that we are NOT an investment information source – if you are loocking for a safe or insanly fast investment opportunity, theirs lots of other sources. We focus on the economic and social value of a currency, not its ROI for investors.
The criterias for currencies beeing on our Watchlist are (subject to change) :
* Sourcecode for Node must be Opensource
* No unreasonable Premine or concentration of Coins from the beginning / for founders (richlist)
* CPU/GPU friendly algos that are ASIC-resistant as good as possible and force decentralization.
* Innovative Technology that differs it from bitcoin
* Does not have to be a currency, but has to have a defined purpose (e.G ETH or DCR)
