What is Vertcoin (VTC)

Vertcoin is a GPU-mining oriented cryptocurrency that is a hard fork of Bitcoin. The network is specifically designed to make proof-of-work (PoW) mining its native VTC token compatible with mainstream hardware, namely, GPU processors prevalent among contemporary desktop computers.

Vertcoin is ASIC-resistant, which means it is not congruent with high-powered, specialized miners associated with Bitcoin. Vertcoin offers a one-click miner setup to make mining accessible to everyone.


Vertcoin (VTC) features

Vertcoin is explicitly built with the purpose of granting broader access to PoW-based mining to users with consumer computers. The network is a blend of features from Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum -- respectively adding SegWit in 2017, retains the 2.5 minute block times of Litecoin, and relies on the Verthash mining algorithm which is based on Ethereum’s Ethash algorithm.

Additionally, Vertcoin deploys a native difficulty adjustment algorithm called Kimoto Gravity.

Unlike many altcoins available today, Vertcoin did not have a pre-mine or ICO, and does not offer airdrops. There is a Vertcoin desktop wallet available for Mac, Windows, Linux, and is supported by Ledger Live.

Vertcoin’s value proposition is primarily underscored by its mining access to consumer computers. As hash values of PoW networks increase, mining difficulty also increases, precluding consumer computers (i.e., CPUs & GPUs) from meaningfully profiting from the mining process. Vertcoin is intentionally ASIC-resistant to block specialized mining hardware from participating in the network -- empowering mainstream users to profitably mine the Vertcoin chain with their spare processing power.

Vertcoin is an open-source project licensed under an MIT license, and has a capped token supply of 84 million VTC, with close to 51 million currently in circulation. Currently, 25 VTC are issued per mined block. Notably, Vertcoin experienced a 51 percent attack in December 2018, which sparked polarizing debate about weighing the pros and cons of ASIC-resistant mining.

ASIC resistance is a popular topic in mining circles, and focuses on the security advantages of ASIC miners by their contribution to network hash power vs. their centralization of mining power within the same network. Vertcoin has become one of the microcosms of this debate in the broader industry.
