Committed to total decentralisation.

Vertcoin is a cryptocurrency dedicated to the fundamentals of decentralisation.

What Is Vertcoin?

Vertcoin is a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or Litecoin with an added focus on keeping the ecosystem as decentralized as possible.No ASICs! No Monopolies! People Cheer!

Our Goal

We believe that cryptocurrencies should belong to the people. Anything less than this is a failure to cryptocurrency itself.

Vertcoin was created in 2014 with the intention of being easily mined by the masses. In more recent times devices called ASICs have taken over Bitcoin/Litecoin giving profitability over to large companies.Fair Mining and Lightning Network

Decentralised Mining

While other cryptocurrencies have succumbed to monopolized mining, Vertcoin remains resistant to the specialised hardware that is used to mine currencies like Bitcoin.

As mining represents an ownership in the network we believe that everyone has the right to access. We have created an easy One-Click Miner to help you get started with mining.

Lightning Network Contributors

Lightning Network is a payment layer designed to solve the problems of scalability, speed and transaction costs without compromising security standards.

LIT is the first Lightning Network to include Vertcoin support, and currently the only non-commercial Lightning Network implementation, meaning that it can never be monetised.

LIT is developed at MIT DCI by Thaddeus Dryja the co-author of the Original Lightning Network White Paper.

Swap Currencies Easily

Lightning Atomic Swaps

Atomic Swaps allow for decentralized swapping of cryptocurrencies without a 3rd party.

This means that a merchant could accept your Vertcoin payment and easily change it into Bitcoin or any other supported currency.

We’re building Atomic Swaps into our new platforms as part of a larger strategy to move away from centralised exchanges for the benefit of crypto. Swap Currencies on the go

Be Your Own Bank - Multicoin Lightning Wallet

Lightning presents an interesting challenge. In order to send/receive transactions users need to be online at all times, obviously this isn’t practical.

Solving this you have two choices. You could give control of your funds to a third party having them manage it for you and doing so recreating the banking system we already have.

Alternatively, you could have a device in your house similar to a small router in your house that manages your Lightning transactions. This is the only option that lets you control your funds. That’s what LitBox is, a multi coin lightning solution that lets you be your own bank.Swap Currencies on the go

Committed To Building A Balanced System

Decentralisation forms the basis of cryptocurrency. So far the large majority of tokens/coins have ignored centralisation issues bringing them closer to banking, a system we already have. Without decentralisation, cryptocurrency has either become either a scam or a failure. A fair and balanced system away from corporate interest.

No Premine, No ICO, No Air-Drop

Vertcoin is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Fairly distributed starting in January 2014, every Vertcoin in existence has been mined by its users on a level playing field.

This makes Vertcoin less susceptible to market manipulation as the developers do not maintain large holdings to artificially inflate the market capitalisation.

Vibrant Community

Vertcoin has tens of thousands of community members from all over the globe. A great coin for beginners, join our Discord Server or Reddit to meet a ton of like-minded people who are waiting to help you get started.

Often hailed as one of the “best communities in crypto”, Vertcoin really is all about you. There are no businesses or celebrities behind Vertcoin, only real people with a shared vision.
