Now everyone knows the big names  Peercoin and Novacoin. However, there is a big world of PoS coins out there, and I simply can't find a GOOD list of PoS coins and information on them. So, I decided that since I'm doing the work anyway, I'd provide my work to the community. Hopefully it will help someone else. Now most people understand Proof of Work  getting paid for mining. But I'd wager a few to many understand how Proof of Stake works. PoS is a method to try to prevent the 51% attack by encouraging people to hold coins in their wallet. And for this "service" coin holders are paid a Stake (dividend) every so many days. Now the stake varies, as does the period, and that's where the magic is. You see, this post will not only just list the PoS coins, but it will also detail percentages, periods, and give a little analysis of the coins themselves. However, let's start with the coin list. And If I miss any  which is highly probable  please feel free to chime in.
Full disclosure  I possess the following coins: BCX, PPC, TEK, BTG, CAP, CGB, CASH, DMD, GLX, HBN, MINT, NVC, PHS, TES
Coins in bold are the first Stake coins in their category, but the dev tree for the categories flows as follows: Peercoin > Novacoin > YACoin
Coins in green have had their Stake confirmed by me personally.
I need to define something, since many coins are descended from Novacoin, many will have a Stake percentage that mirrors it. However, Novacoins percentage is variable depending upon the Stake ready coins on the network. It starts out at 100% yearly and decreases based on the stake difficulty. 100% NVCS = 100% / (StakeDiff ^ 1/4) Many coins will be listed as X% NVCS, which means that they would yield X% yearly, but difficulty decreases this percentage.
All percentages will have a second % in parentheses: X% NVCS (Y%) OR X% yearly (Y%) Y% reflects what you can expect every stake period at the minimum age.
Next, the coins take time to find stake, there is a minimum age and a maximum age. So, if you transfer coins into a wallet, it will take at least the minimum age for them to produce stake, but it may take up to the maximum age. In the list below that will be represented by: Stake Age (SA) = min days / max days
Exchanges  If it is listed on an exchange, I am not going to list all of them, but I will try to list the largest
Coinmarketcap  If the coin is listed on coinmarketcap.com, I will note it as CMC in the list below
Max Coins  The max # of coins that can be produced factors into how valuable the coin will be  but it is not the only factor. We will peg the number of coins against the max # of BTC which is 21 million. So for example, HBN which has a max number of coins of 120 million, would be denoted Coins 5.7  there will be 5.7 HBN for every 1 BTC.
False claims  Coins with a strike through are broken and do not have stake.
