Vertcoin Development Update March 2019
Over the past year or so we have seen many cryptocurrency ?teams? make quick exits after harsh market conditions and ICO scams, but not us. The team continues to volunteer our time amidst the constant negativity and trash talking. We believe our hard work with pay off again one day. Until then, we offer this update for your consideration. Over the last month, we?ve been in a back-and-forth with the developer of our GPU miners for Verthash. We think we?re close to the end, but unfortunately there are no guarantees since Verthash is an entirely new concept requiring a skill set very few have. Early testing has resulted in a few bug fixes in the Vertcoin Core release we mentioned last month, and there?s an updated testnet running between three nodes (two development team members and the miner developer) that should allow us to verify that the miner is implemented correctly. Once the miner is ready we can hardfork the testnet and get a wider audience looking at Verthash (that includes you!). We want to get this done soon, but this is an entirely new concept, so you?ll have to be a little patient. As always, we?ll keep you informed through this monthly update.

Vertcoin Development Update December 2018
Are you ready to fork? This past month has seen a flurry of activity updating software, getting the word out, and generally preparing to fork. This will be the third time Vertcoin has demonstrated its willingness and ability to fork (though not the last) to kick off ASICs/botnets and deter future ones wondering where to best place their investments. Ensuring mining stays on readily available, multi-purpose, consumer devices is paramount to ensuring the health, immutability, and distribution of the network. We aren?t going to cover what a hard fork is. If you?re curious you can read up on the info here or here.

Release 0.14.0 - Lyra2REv3 main network hard fork · vertcoin-project/vertcoin-core · GitHub
Create your free GitHub account today to subscribe to this repository for new releases and build software alongside 28 million developers. metalicjames released this Jan 6, 2019 · 0 commits to 0.13.0 since this release This release contains the proposed upcoming Vertcoin main network hard fork to the new Lyra2REv3 mining algorithm at block 1080000 in order to rid the network of the current generation of Lyra2REv2 ASICs and FPGAs. It also contains the hard fork for the test network which already occurred at block 158221. The related pull request is here: #72. The difficulty will be forced down to 0x1b0ffff0 for 10 blocks after the fork before the usual KGW difficulty adjustment algorithm kicks in again to prevent the network from stalling due to the large expected decrease in network hashrate post-fork.

Non-notable cryptocurrency. The best sources from the past AfDs are IB Times and BBC News. Though BBC just has it in the side bar section called "Alt coin mining". It was only because the miner they interviewed happened to like vertcoin a lot. If they interviewed someone else it could have been a different coin. A Daily Dot article was cited by some keeps but it was pointed out that it's an opinion piece republished from someone's blog. End of the 2nd AfD an article from JOSIC is cited but the site doesn't load for me and it probably wasn't a reliable source per the objector's comments. In my opinion IB Times was the only source that can be used to establish notability. Is there anything better? ? 01:45, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

After a quick drop to the pre-pump values, VTC went up once again and this time recorded a monthly high of $0.744 on September 22nd. The currency dropped off afterwards, reaching $0.667 on the 26th behind some increased daily trade volume which went over $1 million for the first time in the month. VTC went on to retest $0.73 a couple more times before shifting into a slow downtrend which brought us the prices we have today.

Vertcoin (VTC) Review, Mining, Pool, Price, Wallet Bitcoin Wiki
Vertcoin (VTC) is a Bitcoin-like blockchain currency with additional features such as Stealth Address technology and ASIC resistant Proof-of-work (PoW) function. The main difference between Bitcoin and Vertcoin is the latter's resistance to centralized mining and the long term promise of Vertcoin developers to keep it that way. Vertcoin has already forked two times to a new PoW function because of a veritable threat of centralized mining. The Vertcoin cryptocurrency wallet can be downloaded from Vertcoin's official website. Vertcoin is an alternative version of Bitcoin using Lyra2REv2 as a proof-of-work algorithm. Payments in the Vertcoin network are made to addresses, which are based on digital signatures. They are strings of 33 numbers and letters which always begin with the letter V.

Vertcoin Block Reward Halves, Price Picks Up Again - Cryptovest
Vertcoin, a digital asset with a technology similar to Bitcoin and Litecoin, with some key changes, has undergone the scheduled halving of the block reward. After December 12, the block reward falls from 50 to 25 coins. Because VTC is a younger digital asset, its block reward is the same as that of Litecoin, and double that of Bitcoin, which has already undergone two halvings for a reward of 12.5 BTC per block. Vertcoin is still recovering from a slump after the previous attempt at vaulting $10. A week ago, the VTC price was pressured along with other altcoins and slid down from the peak. But the next few days may see VTC moving again, especially as the still niche coin uses the halving as a source of social media noise.

Vertcoin (VTC) Doubles Out of Nowhere, Is it Just a Dangerous Pump - Cryptovest
Vertcoin (VTC) grew to nearly $2 within hours, with no clear explanation for the price move, triggering warnings of future losses.

VTC exploded from levels of $1.03, appreciating in two large hourly bursts around 1:00 UTC and 6:00 UTC.

Vertcoin's Struggle Is Everyone's Struggle
Michael J. Casey is the chairman of CoinDesk?s advisory board and a senior advisor for blockchain research at MIT?s Digital Currency Initiative. The following article originally appeared in CoinDesk Weekly, a custom-curated newsletter delivered every Sunday exclusively to our subscribers. You may not have heard of Vertcoin, a crypto project designed to curtail concentration in mining power in the interests of broad-based participation. But if you care about security, decentralization and open access for cryptocurrencies, then the questions raised by a recent breach of its blockchain will matter to you.
