Committed To Decentralisation

Vertcoin is an ASIC resistant alternative to Bitcoin and Litecoin

What Is Vertcoin?

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

Our Goal

We believe that cryptocurrency 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

Solving Lightning Network’s Problems


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 recreate 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.Be your own bank with LitBox

Making Lightning Network User Friendly

Mobile & Desktop Apps

Vertcoin is at the forefront of Lightning Network development, developing the first known multicoin lightning network wallet in existence.

One of the hardest aspects of Lightning Network development is working out how it will look and feel for the user. This is similar to the early days of the internet, working out how users will interact with infrastructure of the future.

The wallet will support Vertcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin intially and will function as single Lightning ecosystem, complete eventually with Lightning Atomic Swaps.Swap Currencies on the go

Developer/Community Social Contract

Vertcoin remains ASIC resistant through a community contract to hard fork our mining algorithm and make the new device useless. This has been done twice in Vertcoin’s history, it is not an empty threat.

Learn About The Algorithm 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.
