... at the Israel meetup group.

The currencies I plan to discuss are Namecoin, Litecoin, PPCoin and Freicoin.
I might mention in one slide some of the failed experiments / scams / non-interesting forks (Solidcoin/RUCoin/GeistGeld/TerraCoin).
I might also include a slide about some related projects: Ripple & Open Transactions.

Any other important coins I'm missing?
Any important information about these coins that isn't included in their wiki pages?

Does anyone know interesting statistics on these currencies, including e.g. their current market cap?
You can add it to the wiki or just reply to this thread.

I thought RUcoin was just recently released?

Rucoin has been around for quite a while, I believe over 12 months

I will if the facilities have recording equipment ... but it will be in Hebrew, so I'm not sure how good it would do you guys Smiley

I think with the exception of groupcoin/devcoin, sacarlson's multicoin client got most of those forks you mentioned an easy path to making their genesis blocks and alt coin clients and chains and rules. His Beertokens and weeds experiments were interesting as well.

Looking forward to this,...  It'll be refreshing to revisit the crypto currencies landscape from a more neutral standpoint.

Too often, talks focusing only on Bitcoin, sound like advertisements.

What's the expected length of your talk ?

About that - I think it might be worth it to do the talks in English, precisely for the recording to be more broadly usable.

What's the expected length of your talk ?
30 minutes.
