A big, big update.MAJOR CHANGES:
-PPcoin makes it into MAJOR.
because: got to the big exchange, got big market cap and kept it for some time. CONGRATULATIONS PEPSICOIN !!
-"NEW" category is now "CANDIDATES"
because sometimes coin stays there for a long time and is not new anymore, or even comes back from the dead.
-BQC gets to CANDIDATES and gets a new description:
now: -BBQ BBQCoin - forgotten after 51% attack on launch, now revived and active.
instead of -BBQ BBQCoin - killed in 51% attack on launch, now revived and looking good
its back, bacause diff is stabilized for a long time now and there are more connections than some alive coins for months.
-NOT A COIN category is now "NOT AN OPENSOURCE COMMODITY CRYPTO COIN"
to clear any doubts about ripple , digicash and future not-coins
- Swiftcoin added as "NOT AN OPENSOURCE COMMODITY CRYPTO COIN"

TRC added : "difficulty initialy flaved but corrected" , "miner-jump resonance resistant" - temporary removed
BTE changed from:
Bytecoin the 1:1 bitcoin copycat. really bad difficulty adjustment for altcoin, extremally high hashrate for that young coin.
-BTE Bytecoin- the 1:1 bitcoin copycat, nothing changed. extremally high starting hype/hashrate.
as it is no longer "that young" and hashrate is no longer "that high"
RUC, NVC - minor description adjustments
some layout corrections
as I made some major changes, I encourage you to give me your opinion.
we need to keep this list at altcoin community accepted form.
