Vertcoin - Definition from the Hotspot Shield Encyclopedia

Vertcoin is a form of cryptocurrency that aims to provide an alternative to Bitcoin and uses a different system for mining of the coin that spreads it out more between a wider range of people as opposed to a central group.

The main benefits of Vertcoin include privacy on Blockchains and public ledgers through the use of stealth addresses, a highly decentralized nature to avoid a fair distribution of Vertcoin, a team of dedicated developers and a high level of support. Vertcoin aims to fight against custom mining tools that are used to flood the market with digital coins in their favor thus creating a pressure exploit for selling and buying.
