What is Vertcoin?
Vertcoin is not funded nor controlled by any entity, it is simply an open source GPU Bitcoin variant that mirrors BTC development.
Vertcoin uses an ASIC-resistant proof-of-work mechanism to issue new coins which allows consumer grade hardware such as GPUs more incentive to secure the network and validate transactions.
It can be mined profitably by anyone, and its distribution is fair, without a premine, ICO, or airdrop. Vertcoin is developed by volunteers from the community and funded solely by donations.
