Vertcoin is similar to bitcoin, but with improvements and added features – like ASIC resistant Proof-of-work (PoW) function and Stealth Address technology. Unlike bitcoin, Vertcoin is against centralized mining and promises to stay that way. Vertcoin, which has skyrocketed 187.47% higher in the past year, can be purchased via YObit.
