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.

Thanks!
NVC is actually...1/(nMaxPoSTarget/nCurrentPoSTarget)^(1/6)
Sooo...who knows what it really is currently. But it started at 100% and its dropping.
Which means many of the NVC clones are probably just like it.

PoS makes sense if these were investments. How does it help these become currencies? If it simply benefits those who hold coins, it would create artificially scarce environments where the price would go up.

not every investment vehicle is a currency. You dont buy eggs and  milk with MSFT or GOOG or APPL. Nothing wrong with giving a dividend to coin holders, its the reward for taking on risk, and securing their respective network.

Now everyone knows the big names - Peercoin and Novacoin.

YACoin is (I believe) the third proof of stake coin to be released (Peercoin->Novacoin->YACoin) and also the originator and first to implement the N parameter of Scrypt(N, 1, 1).

Thanks for the info all - I will update.

why all these list threads, instead of supporting my open altcoins.cc project?

Honestly - I didn't know about it. It doesn't have a listing for Stake that I saw. And, I'd rather have a discussion on Stake as opposed to a static page.

That's part of what I'd like to discuss with this thread. While ROI is one thing, you also have to look at the dev team, community, and long term plans. If the foundation of the coin is strong, I'd start to think about it as an investment. Because if I put money into something, I don't want it to disappear or shrink to nothing because the coin dies. I would say HBN is strongest of the 3, followed by PHS. I am not impressed by TEK...someone please prove me wrong.

Good initiative, but you should highlight the "founders" of each category and add the "100%-PoS" coins.

So it would look like this:

PoS/PoW hybrid coins (PPC descendants):

SHA-256:
Peercoin
Deutsche eMark
....

Scrypt:
Novacoin
Tagcoin
...

Scrypt-N:
Yacoin
Ybcoin
...

Pure PoS coins:
Nxt
....

etc.

Most of the time with these coins the stake mints early during the window. From my past experience, usually the first day eligible. ymmv

these 3 coins are all zero premine zero block halving coins.


CAP 5% every 30 days  daily mintage(pow) 14,400    current minted:  2,800,000     10 per min      

HBN 2% every 10 days  daily mintage(pow) 14,400    current minted:  3,000,000      5 per 30 sec

TEK 40% every 30 days daily mintage(pow)  1,440    current minted:     326,000      1 coin per min


The true power of the stake is in compounding interest.

Here is a calculator to run the math out a few months with.(select compound interest)

+1 to this thundertoe - good statement on compounding interest.
Just a  question on this, I was looking at the code this morning for CAP & HBN - and it looks like they both have the NVC code where they'll start @ 100% and decrease based upon stake diff to a minimum stake. However, CAP and HBN vary because their min stakes are 1% and 100% respectively. Am I reading this correctly? So while they start the same now, as more coins come to market they won't stay the same?

    return nSubsidy;

Now everyone knows the big names - Peercoin and Novacoin. However, there is a big world of PoS coins out there

These coins are established and have been available for quite some time.  Want to get on the POS train early??

MINTcoin
Hobonickels
GalaxyCoin

I cannot talk for the other too, but Mintcoin is ridiculously undervalued, partly because it is not on coinmarketcap or cryptsy => great opportunity to come in (biggest exchange: http://www.mintpal.com).
This infographic should help you undestand why so much people are jumping in the wagon at the moment!

What coin do you guys suggest putting an investment in? I believe habbo nickels will go down in price sooner or later so I would rather not invest in them. (I have a computer runnning 24/7 so staking is no problem)
I am thinking mintcoin, what do you reccon?

Thx for the list!


Could you add transaction-fees? Imo a very important factor.

btw, is there any coin whose fee adjusts automatically in order to push inflation near zero?

In the best case, fees depend on transaction amount as well, so POS generates the same amount of "free transaction opportunities" for everyone, rich or poor.

Another Proof of Stake coin that is missing in your list is CACHeCoin:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=400389.0

It uses Scrypt-Jane as PoW, min/max stake depth is 7/30 days and the maximal stake value is equal to 5% interest per year, when converted from coin-days.
As for TxFees, min fee is 0.01 CACH and the fees are destroyed, not given to miners.

As for CACHeCoin and exchange - it is traded on Poloniex: https://www.poloniex.com/exchange/btc_cach

As for others ... many of the coins are traded on major exchanges already (cryptsy, coinedup ....), some of them only at smaller ones (like GPL being traded on https://www.scifi-ex.com and AFAIK nowhere else yet)

Maybe put coins into some grid/table, with coins in row and perhaps 10 columns for various exchanges?

BTW you have typo in the OP, it is "CACHeCoin", not "CACHEeCoin".

Hey guys,

It's quite difficult for most to understand/compare average % returns from pos. Maybe a suggestion would be a ranking from highest return to lowest based on monthly return or yearly? good job though by the way

Sorting by monthly or yearly profit should be equivalent (yearly profit would be basically 12 times applied monthly profit Smiley, but this sorting can be hard in general, as the with some coins the profit may depend on external factors (difficulty, etc ...), so it may not be simply directly comparable.

Started to add info about Max # of coins...
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.

Most of the time with these coins the stake mints early during the window. From my past experience, usually the first day eligible. ymmv

TEK 40% every 30 days daily mintage(pow)  1,440    current minted:     326,000      1 coin per min

Updated list...not for the good. There are false claims out there.
False claims - Coins with a strike through are broken and do not have stake.

Starcoin has been struck - its stake code is broken.
Diamond is struck. Its code is broken - but the devs claim they are working on a fix.

I am about to strike Galaxycoin & Cosmoscoin - I have been sitting on them for a month and nothing...I've looked through the block explorer for GLX and I can't find a stake. I don't know of a good explorer for cosmos, so I haven't been able to check.

Also, Bottlecaps - I believe the claim of 5% a month to be false. I looked at the block explorer and it looks like CAP is set at 1% per year still, which would be ~.1% per month.

Grain info added.

Added the following coins to the list:
Inkacoin
Growthcoin - yes its back

Added Cryptobuck - Although PoW is broken at this point.

Is there any info to add to BlackCoin since it's release? From my understanding it's suppose to be 1% stake yearly but I'm not sure how true that is.

Also I have a question about QuickQuickCoin. I looked at my QQC-qt and noticed it does show stake within the client itself however after doing research I've yet to find any information. Does anyone know if this coin does indeed generate PoS?

Lastly does anyone have information on MicroCoin's stake information? I have a bunch of coins in my wallet but have yet to generate stake.

Added ADT.

I can confirm stake for Blackcoin, Cash & TEK.

Blackcoin will take you longer than 8hrs - I had 11K of coin and it took ~ 2 days.
- IMO Blackcoin is interesting ONLY because the stake is so short.
- I will not be putting any BTC into it because its 1% yearly is not worth it from a stake standpoint - and that's my focus.  

Cash took about ~32 days for ~115 coins.

I'll add QQC to the list - it is supposed to be 20%. However its min stake period is 1 year.
MicroCoin - it is supposed to be 20%. However its min stake period is 1 year.

IMO copy and past coins - didn't even both to change stake period from the e-mark.

Is there any info to add to BlackCoin since it's release? From my understanding it's suppose to be 1% stake yearly but I'm not sure how true that is.

Also I have a question about QuickQuickCoin. I looked at my QQC-qt and noticed it does show stake within the client itself however after doing research I've yet to find any information. Does anyone know if this coin does indeed generate PoS?

All,

GrowthCoin is alive...and the stake works - I can confirm it.
The community is small however, so there isn't much volume.

If your're a stake hunter like me - I'd pick some up or mine it (diff is low). Who knows what will happen.

@StakeHunter, thank you for sharing - hopefully we can all combine our knowledge and make this list beneficial to all PoS investors.

I've been investing in Hobo for a while now and I'm really starting to like PoS coins.
Mainly because of what you've shared (in this post as well as your PoS Investments post) I'm currently researching Stones (looking good) and mining some Growth.

Also researching two new PoS coins - ECC and ZEIT
Both claiming a 25% year 1 interest rate...

Edit: both ECC and ZEIT seems to be MINT clones.

A lot of new PoS coins are cloning MINT so obviously the MINT model seems to be popular.

Not sure I like the idea of only being able to effectively PoW mine for 5 or 6 weeks?
A more gradual shift from PoW to PoS seems to make more sense imho - from a long term investment coin perspective that is.

Thoughts?

IMO mint became popular, so people decided to clone it and see if they could pull off the same thing. And mint itself is just a clone of DOGE with some stake tacked on as an afterthought...gimmick.

In my opinion ALL coins should be both Work and Stake. Work secures the network and keeps a community active. It allows people who don't want to buy the coin outright to get some. Stake helps stabilize the price and rewards the holder of the coin for being loyal and using the commodity - ie not just dumping them as soon as they mine them, or as soon as the price jumps a little bit.  

These flash in the pan coins - where you can only mine for a few weeks are just all noise and no substance. I bet they're a way for early adopters to make a ton of money before they are dumped. Look at mint and blackcoin right now - pump and dump.  

Devs - coin makers - I'm calling you out.
  • Stake should either be the NVC model - 100% yearly modified by stake difficulty - or 50+%
  • Stake coins must have methods to contain inflation - destroy tx fees
  • Stake age should be no greater than 30 days
All other stake is a gimmick.

Coins that don't pass the stake test use it as a hook to draw in the unaware. They throw words around like "investment," "gains," and "energy efficient." As a stake investor stay away from them. They will be ruled more by price fluctuation (pump and dump) than by stake and you will never recoup your investment through stake.  

Coins need a community - miners plus stake holders grows the community.
Coins need to be rare - not billions of coins within a few weeks or months.
Coins need to be fair - not hugely rewarding early adopters.
Coins need to be supported - good and active devs.
Coins need to be stable - work and stake that last for years.

Coins that pass those tests are worth investment.

i'm relatively new to crypto but this is a good summary of how my thoughts are beginning to crystallize (personally i'm not interested in a day trading approach)

also the reason why the only stake coins currently on my investment list are NVC, HBN, and PHS (recently added)
watching the resurrection of GrowthCoin closely

interesting that apart from NVC (about 2 years old) all the other coins on my list (HBN, PHS, GRW) were launched about 7-8 months ago

will be great to see a new coin designed using this model
if not i may consider refreshing my c++ skills and developing one myself

I know I'm crossing threads here - giving advice in a thread that is just about the coin lists, but I can't help it. It is time to draw a line and raise a flag about stake and coins in general. There are too many making money by preying upon others.

HBN, PHS, GRW all were born from the first scrypt alt-coin frenzy that happened after LTC and NVC became popular. However with HBN & PHS you can see that the devs and community care about their coins. There is a core there - not the bubbling frenzy of other coins but a solid core. 

The cornerstone of my stake portfolio is NVC, HBN, PHS, and TEK. Any stake investor needs to pick those 4 coins up. The ratio that you pick them up in is determined by how much risk you want to assume in your portfolio. I'll address this more in my other thread.

However, we can't just sit on our coins. As stake investors we need to do the best we can to promote and help those coins. Support bounty funds, and services, talk them up, find vendors, etc.

will be great to see a new coin designed using this model
if not i may consider refreshing my c++ skills and developing one myself

I'm on the fence about new coins. I think if we can promote the 4/5 core coins, and especially the coins with the smaller market caps, we may not need more coins. Think - if we can double or triple the market cap of the lesser coins, then the stake made also doubles and triples. We don't need other coins if we can make more on what we have simply by investing time into the current coins.

The only caveat to no more coins, may be coins with different algorithms. If someone comes out with a good stake (see above criteria) coin that is scrypt-jane, quark, or heavycoin-algo based - they may be worth watching/investing in.

Currently researching FlutterCoin.
Launched a few days ago - rocky start but seems to be stable now (i'll cut the dev some slack as this is not a copy and paste coin).

PoW, PoS and introducing Proof of Block (interesting).
Not much in the spec about PoS but looking at the code it seems to be 100% max yearly interest.

Wallet includes coin control (nice).

PoW rewards scales down over 8 years.
I also like the fact that dev is doing his best to stay below the radar and focusing on the code.

Promising - this may be the new coin I was looking for?
Mining FLT while net hashrate still low.

Code:
// miner's coin stake reward based on nBits and coin age spent (coin-days)
int64 GetProofOfStakeReward(int64 nCoinAge, unsigned int nBits, unsigned int nTime, bool bCoinYearOnly)
{
    int64 nRewardCoinYear, nSubsidy, nSubsidyLimit = 10 * COIN;
    CBigNum bnRewardCoinYearLimit = MAX_MINT_PROOF_OF_STAKE; // Base stake mint rate, 100% year interest
    CBigNum bnTarget;
    bnTarget.SetCompact(nBits);
    CBigNum bnTargetLimit = GetProofOfStakeLimit(0, nTime);
    bnTargetLimit.SetCompact(bnTargetLimit.GetCompact());

    // FlutterCoin: A reasonably continuous curve is used to avoid shock to market

    CBigNum bnLowerBound = 5 * CENT, // Lower interest bound is 5% per year
    bnUpperBound = bnRewardCoinYearLimit, // Upper interest bound is 100% per year
    bnMidPart, bnRewardPart;

https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/7068-fluttercoin-flt-information/
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=499126.0

Edit: I asked dev about PoS in Flutter and he said it's the same as NVC except that he changed lower interest bound to 5%

to the OP It may be worthwhile to make a google spreadsheet to keep the new additions updated.

Great thread btw, I have 50 wallets and this made it easier to run through and put them all into a POS folder.

GhostCoin .. POW ( 1st 3 months ) then POS ..

Looks like a 'reverse' MINT clone ..
Stake % goes UP over time ( first 6 years ) 
20%/25%/30% two years at each stake %
Then 5%/year after the 6th year ..

I must say the MINT interest is rolling in Cheesy I even gen'd some HBN yesterday

ZEIT is even better when it matures, I can only assume its the same timeframe as MINT, ie 20 days.

I know is its 25% first year then 20% 2nd year etc

Please add ZEIT to the list https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=487814.0

ECC coin 

50 Billion total projected coins
POW mining first 40 days then POS
25%/15%/10% 3rd-9th year/ then 1% after year 10

Looks like a "MINT" clone or close to it
Currently selling for about 5 Satoshis

Not making any judgements or recs ..
Just one more to add to our list ..

Hey guys great thread,

After reading a few posts I was thinking, why don't we start brainstorming and start our own pos coin? We could compare current pos coins and we could gather a community of like minded stakers. I'm sure we can all relate to the frustrated feeling when looking at these new pos coins and wondering what are they really thinking. I was thinking of doing it myself and brushing up on my coding skills again as I am basically free this next year but I think it could be so much better if we got motivated and involved members onboard. Could be a great way to start from scratch, and build a community..What do you think?

PoS makes sense if these were investments. How does it help these become currencies? If it simply benefits those who hold coins, it would create artificially scarce environments where the price would go up.

POS coins are the way to go for long-term. 

Have you ever thought about what will happen to POW coins after they are mined out?  How will the blockchain be supported of there are no miners working to process transactions?

I must say the MINT interest is rolling in Cheesy I even gen'd some HBN yesterday

ZEIT is even better when it matures, I can only assume its the same timeframe as MINT, ie 20 days.

I know is its 25% first year then 20% 2nd year etc

Please add ZEIT to the list https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=487814.0

Cheesy
G

+1 for Zeit. POW/POS with a strong community backing and great dev team. Only 19 days old, mining is still practical and price is low. So now is a good time to buy!

Great thread & info, thanks!

I've taken the plunge and bought some POS coins, but now I'm unsure how to guarantee I earn my 'interest' for different coins. Do all of the POS coins require keeping the wallet open 24/7?

It would be great if you could add some info on what is required to generate the POS coins for each coin on your list.

I've done some preliminary reading today and it seems with some coins you might be able to risk opening the wallet as little as once a week and still get your stake coins paid, but I've also read conflicting reports that suggest nearly all POS wallet needs to be 'unlocked' and opened all the time to generate interest. I'm not sure how to 'unlock' a wallet, but suspect it might be the same as 'encrypt' a wallet.

This information is critical for any would be stakehunters, so it would be good to add that info in this thread.

Thanks again for starting a very informative discussion!

in short, encrypted wallet needs to be unlocked before you can stake
(if you don't encrypt your wallet, coins will also stake - NOT recommended)

to unlock encrypted wallet execute the following command in debug window
walletpassphrase mypassword 999999

it is NOT required to have your wallet open and unlocked 24/7 to stake

coins age with your wallet offline
when you bring your wallet online with high coin age coins, you stand a better chance of staking than coins on the network with lower coin age

I have some questions and thoughts on the matter. First of all, there seems to be older ones that are POW/POS the entire time, this is nice that they can always be mined and great to keep miners involved. That does add the complexity for value dropping long term with increasing mining power and difficulty not matching it. (ASICs) For example, I love PHS, but it can be mined and with a high interest, so generally appears to be losing value faster than it generates coins.

MINTcoin, is that the first one with the limited POW and then POS phase? Then ZEITcoin cloned it, and then Blackcoin came out right away - with a low interest rate and super short POW phase. This allowed it to beat MINT to the POS period even though it was released later. (ECCcoin is out now and overall I think has some improvements to the MINT design)

My questions (seems difficult to find this information anywhere)

#1 Is MINT the first limited POW/POS hybrid, and were all the others previously always POW/POS combined. If true, that makes it sort of unique, if you love or hate the idea, it does seem to be getting a lot of clones fast. ZEIT/BC/ECC/EDGECOIN-although likely a scam... others?

#2 BC ending POW has rarity by miners not dumping it, with indirect mining tech putting buying pressure, even with the low interest rate this seems more likely to gain value than a POW/POS minable coin, especially when ASICs start hitting them and miners dumping. So isn't the limited POW actually a MASSIVE advantage for a coin, rather than a disadvantage? Thinking long term, mass adoption, easier to have a wallet than a bunch of 280x cards or Gridseeds. More appealing to the consumer market later, I think?

#3 Don't limited POW coins have an advantage by being ASIC invincible after the POW phase?

#4 Are POW/POS coins in the POW phase immune to 51% attacks unless someone has over 51% of the stake? Heard yes and no...?

Interested because long term Peercoin has one of the best looking charts. I think some of the new hybrids could end up following a chart like that, and if so, they have not reached "take-off" point yet. Anyway, my favorites are MINT/BC/ECC, precisely because miners can't dump them and crash the value constantly. Eventually enough people should horde and value go up, rather than just drop constantly like we see with almost every new LTC clone.

I also don't think billions or millions or hundreds of thousands matters at all. Just the interest and how many new coins (as an overall percentage) can flood the market.

Hello everyone,

In Mint we had a bug that affects "getbalance accountname" RPC calls since PoS phase started. This was a bug only for wallet's account keeping functions -- overall balance of the wallet was always correct. A fix for the bug is available on GitHub. I think the same bug may be affecting other PoS coins. Thanks to drakoin for making me announce this here.

Let me explain you the problem;

There are 2 ways to calculate the balance in the wallet, one sums unspent TxOuts and gives a single balance, and the other tries to bind minted coins / received coins / sent coins with accounts. Normally, result of these 2 methods should exactly match. In our case, they didn't (and I suspect other PoS coins to have the same problem). This is similar to the bugs CryptoRush experienced with BC when keeping records of customer balances in wallet's account functionality (it may even be the same bug, I don't know).


This was my problem after some PoS minting:

Code:
00:20:17 listaccounts             --> Summing these don't match wallet's balance
00:20:17 {
"" : -9970744.49303600,
"account1" : 0.00000000,
"account2" : 17487916.06958000,
"account3" : 200000.00000000,
"account4" : 1250000.00000000,
"account5" : 5035.17977500,
"account6" : 4984.06119900,
"account7" : 3450.50390700,
"account8" : 88294.56108000
}
00:20:57 getbalance *
00:20:57 9068935.88250500             --> This is wrong, but consistent with listaccounts sum
00:21:12 getbalance '*'
00:21:12 9068935.88250500
00:21:00 getbalance
00:21:00 8428756.53745800             --> This is the correct wallet balance
00:21:02 getbalance ""
00:21:02 -9970744.49303600            --> This is wrong, but consistent with listaccounts

The patch can be obtained from the following github commit. Note that unfortunately it's committed together with another change that disables PoW. Only changes in wallet.h, wallet.cpp, rpcwallet.cpp, main.h are relevant.

https://github.com/mintcoinproject/mintcoin/commit/dad79713d4172a569238de1b736abfbf307acfbd

Still, even with this patch, I wouldn't trust wallet's per-account functions to keep customers' finance information (there are more information that should be given in PoS wallets' RPC calls for proper bookkeeping, such as listing of per account stakes, mature/immature coins, etc), but I believe this is a step in the right direction. I will be very happy to receive some feedback about the patch and if it affects other PoS coins.


These are the testing steps to see if another PoS coin is affected :
Quote
Test-1: These two should return the same amount
Code:
getbalance
getbalance *

Test-2: listaccounts output and individual account getbalances should match. "" is a special account, has to be checked.
Code:
listaccounts
getbalance ""
getbalance some_account_with_some_spent_and_some_minted_coints

Test-3: getbalance * and sum of listaccounts should match
Code:
getbalance *
listaccounts


thanks to drakoin Smiley

You're welcome. I had noticed that bug in my mint wallet, too - and I was very happy it got fixed! As coins share code, others might face the same problem.

Thanks for announcing your solution here. Cooperation and synergy is so much more profitable for this whole scene than competition and destruction.

The exchange takes the PoS generally. Usually if you believe in a coin you should have it in your wallet anyway. If the coins arent in your wallet you don't really own them, they are like IOU's

Nas is the 100% Proof-of-Stake (PoS) currency.  
What is NAS? It's a descendant of NXT and first working fork of NXT's source code.
Official Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=523187.0
Official Website: http://nascoin.org/

Also it's 5 times cheaper that Nxt prices right after launch, before Dgex.

Some of the really fantastic PoS coins have very high pricetags at this point, making them risky. Zeitcoin and ECCoin both pay 25% and can be stacked for only a few satoshis each. Both are PoW/PoS hybrids and both now have or will soon have very low PoW distribution(Zeitcoin is 1/block currently).

The purpose of POS is to secure the network. POS reward is paid to secure the network by minting. High % return of POS is just a self-diluting game that puts a downward pressure on the coin's price, hence doesn't offer real return as "interest".

What about this? Is this paragraph also correct in your opinion?

yes, this is correct
the problem with bitcoin is 5% inflation right now is a little bit high

it doesn't offer any advantage over 2% inflation security-wise other than giving ASIC miners a higher stake in the game

If you want to use fancy words like "inflation", then better make sure that you know what it means.

That is fine, but irrelevant to this thread which is about POS coins.

POS is a way to secure the network without spending a huge amount of energy hashing. POS reward marging, after sufficient adjustment by the market, will be extremely thin because it really doesn't take a lot to secure a POS network. Any extra reward will used to lower the price of the coin, canceling out the gain. So using POS reward to get rich is not going to work.

Using POS coins to store value is highly likely to work -- POS is very efficient at keep its coin network running.

you need to include coin destruction as well eg peercoin destroys coins per transaction. This effects overall inflation and coin dynamics

Seriously? BC price has been changing by 50-100% in one week intervals, so does 1% annual PoS interest really matters?

Could you explain the difference between yearly and NVCS?
Yearly, I understand, it is like a bank account, right? But NVCS? I know it is related to Novacoin, but apart from this, I don't understand. I think it means this is a maximum, whilst yearly are an exact number.

There has been massive amount of PoW/PoS coins launched lately. Majority of them have rapid PoW phase for few days or weeks and then continuing as pure PoS. Just like MINT and BC did first.
I guess MINT and BC huge price jumps did nice job of pulling new clones out.
There is at least one which shows some creativity.

Digit looks rather interesting.

0.2% monthly PoS base interest.
0.4% on the second month
0.6% on third month
and climbing by 0.2% until PoW mining ends after 3 years from launch.
That makes month nr36 monthly interest of 7.2%.
Interest rate will fall back down after mining is ended.
Interest min payout time is 1 day. No maximum limit.

PoW block reward is dependent on its falling multiplier and difficulty multiplier.
time multiplier starts at 3.34 and falls to 0.1 by the month nr36.

https://github.com/DigitSF/Digit

Code:
unsigned int nStakeMinAge = 24 * 60 * 60; // 1 day
unsigned int nStakeMaxAge = -1; // unlimited

Code:
static const int64_t MAX_MONEY = 90000000000 * COIN;
static const int64_t MAX_PROOF_OF_STAKE = 0.2 * CENT; // 0.2%

Code:
const int MONTHLY_BLOCKCOUNT = 60000;
int64_t GetProofOfStakeReward(int64_t nCoinAge, int64_t nFees, int nHeight)
{
    unsigned int MONTHLY_MULTIPLIER = 1;

    for (int MONTH = 1; MONTH < 71; MONTH++)
{
        if(nHeight < MONTH * MONTHLY_BLOCKCOUNT)
{
MONTHLY_MULTIPLIER = ((MONTH<36) ? MONTH : 36 - MONTH%36);
        }
    }
if (MONTHLY_MULTIPLIER < 1)
{
MONTHLY_MULTIPLIER = 1;
}

    int64_t nSubsidy = nCoinAge * MAX_PROOF_OF_STAKE * MONTHLY_MULTIPLIER  / 30;

It would be interesting if the interest was higher. As tokyoghetto stated it in his HBN investment journal, "20% is not enough when the price can drop 50% overnight".
Too bad because the growing PoS idea is interesting.
5% per month would be much more interesting. 60% at the end of the first year is on par with Philosopher's Stone (less rewarding, since you would break even with PHS only at 10th month, but starting from year 2 it would be interesting).
+5% every month for first year => 60%
+2.5% every month for second year => 90 %
+1.25% every month for third year. => 105%. Considering TEK is at 480% an year (6300% with compounding) and performs very well (too well, I'd say), it may not be too much. PHS is at +50% but not NVCS like TEK/HBN and NVC, which means the interest is constant and doesn't depend on do not decrease with the network difficulty.
Ending it brutally, though, would kill the coin so something would have to be considered.

I feel like starting from April, high-stake coin got less interesting to buy because people started to take notice of this coin. Maybe MINT is the one that raised awareness of PoS to a greater audience.
Now, will new get-rich-quick schemes will divert money from high-PoS (=> price drop, you can buy) or will we have to resort to newly-created high-PoS coin? Unfortunately, all of them (LGD, GWT) seem to be premined :/

Heres some additional info how Digit PoS is built.
It starts from 0.2%  first month. Then 0.4% 2nd, 0.5% 3rd and continues until it reaches 7.2% in month 36.
Adding this together and here is what we get:

1st year = 15.6%  (Average monthy interest in year 1 is 1.3%)
2nd year = 44.4% (Average monthy interest in year 2 is 3.7%)
3rd year = 73,2% (Average monthy interest in year 3 is 6.1%)

From here, interest rate will start dropping.

4th year = 70.8% (Average monthy interest in year 4 is 5.9%)
5th year = 42% (Average monthy interest in year 5 is 3.5%)
6th year = 13.4% (Average monthy interest in year 6 is 1.12%)
7th and all years after that = 2.4% (Average monthy interest in year 7 is 0.2%)

Since their PoW is difficulty dependant, it will should sort itsself out just beautifully. If mining profitability goes down due high supply, then block reward will go down and new supply will decrease.
Vice versa if the opposite situation occurs.

Even considering compounding interest (which takes CPU ressources, by the way since you let your wallet on), this is still too low in a world where price can drop 50% in one day. It's fortunate min's price is very stable, but no evidence this will be the same for this one.

Its rather obvious that coins in babyshoes will have large movements. It the matter of market dept - or the absent of it. Even bitcoin is still a small child.

I have no doubt that HBN is one of the gems in the pot of cryptocoins.  Im curious how HBN staking formula will do in long term period (i mean in 3-5 years time). It attracts to keep more coins in your wallet, but creates a lot of excessive supply when there is no demand for coins and difficulty is low. Seems controversial strategy to me.
Digit PoW being driven by demand/difficulty and PoS smoothly pressuring PoW towards the end looks like a good idea to me.
Both have interesting formula for PoW/PoS.  HBN is already proved to be solid. Lets see how the Digit does.

I'm currently involved with 5% PoS monthly (paid daily) coin HYPER. They have already set up a Counterstrike server where people can get FREE HYPER for fragging bots and earning achievements in the game. Beyond this, the team is also setting up Minecraft servers and plugins, an online HYPER arcade that will feature many indie game developers and where people can earn small amounts of HYPER for playing, an old cult space MMO that should be live soon, as well as the main HYPER MMO project that is constantly being worked on.

Unlike with most coins, the HYPER premine is being used to set up all of the above projects and more. The team is very active and working day and night on delivering results. The vast majority of the PoS coins on this forum have very limited ecosystems and are for speculation only. HYPER is unique in that the coin will be embedded in a complex and growing ecosystem of gamers, traders and stakers.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=624651.0

DISCLOSURE: I am currently on the HYPER team as the manager and escrow for the core HYPER MMO Development fund. Being a Devcoin admin and the manager of the advertising revenue from Devcoin's open source wiki Devtome, I am both qualified for this role, and I can see the benefit in having some funds set aside to fund the first MMO in history to be built by a cryptocurrency!

GL with your job.
BTW, do you also have a decent coder in team now? Im asking because the person who launched the HYPER is a complete n00b in cryptocurrencies. He made false statements and argued against clear facts in the beginning of the Hyper announcement thread.

PoS makes sense if these were investments. How does it help these become currencies? If it simply benefits those who hold coins, it would create artificially scarce environments where the price would go up.

not every investment vehicle is a currency. You dont buy eggs and  milk with MSFT or GOOG or APPL. Nothing wrong with giving a dividend to coin holders, its the reward for taking on risk, and securing their respective network.

I keep hearing this "store of value" statement about various coins but would have to disagree.  The reason GOOG or APPL have value is that they represent a portion percentage of an actual corporation that earns revenue.  Gold/Silver/Metals have practical manufacturing uses which drive their value.  A cryptocoin that simply has no function other than a "store of value" doesn't seem very valuable to me, just more hype and justification for the lack of marketing/development to make it a useful commodity.

Why would anyone buy a nxt clone, if you could buy original? What dies it offer over first Gen?

You could insert any clone coin in this question really.  The way I see it, as most all of them are open source it has led to many talented individuals (and some scammers) to clone a coin and promise a new innovation on top of the original that would make it better in some way (and for the promise of making loads of money after the coin exchange rate increases dramatically).  In some instances, it's a clone with the new flavor of the month tech aspect. 

I personally think the crypto community would be better served by having these talented individuals with innovations team with the developer of an established coin and add on to the existing structure rather than create a MyNewCoin v2.1.  The proliferation just dillutes the arena, deprives established coins of needed talent to grow, and causes a perceptive hurdle for outside investors/newcomers.

Buy NXT if you want marketing, pretty logos, pretty girls and lots of enthusiastic people who are really quite clueless as to the technical realities of cryptos.

Buy Peercoin if you want fundamentally good engineering, design and development.

just a correction there those are not PoS they are Po$

big difference.

and

are two completely different systems.

both have their advantages and disadvantages - but we should categorized them correctly

Bumping for inquiry about future updates

If you looking for daily info that easy to read there is a forum dedicated specifically to high stake pos coins. It even has them in order from highest to lowest percent with links to wallets and pools (if still in pow). They start at a minimum of 100% interest and go all the way up to 10,000% interest. Enjoy. http://bitcoinlasvegas.net/category/highest-percent-proof-of-stake-coins/


I want to make sure everyone knows that I just released my software called "Yobit pump alert". THis is custom software that uses an algo to detect the start of a pump here on yobit, the second it starts. YOu can even filter the coins you see by price. Most pumps start less than 100 sats , so you can easily filter the cheap coins, so they are the only ones displayed Smiley https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1945937.msg20241953#msg20241953

BitShares PTS just performed the first ever hard fork switch from PoW to proof of stake (DPoS). Announcement can be found HERE. The new PTS is the first PoS token with (1) sharedrops in all future Bitshares DACs, (2) a deflationary DPoS protocol, and (3) 100% PoW distribution with no premine. Here are the specs:

* 10 second block confirmation (!)
* Supply scaled to 1,000,000,000 (1 Billion) PTS
* Absolutely no premine, inflation, or dilution of the supply

Coinmarketcap will be updated shortly. Poloniex has resumed trading on the new chain and Bter will transition and resume trading soon. Please add to your list!

You can mine HYPER on Coinking with the multipool. 5% monthly proof of stake interest paid daily, and a very strong community with over 20 developers on various projects. Over 6 months old and unlike most coins value has been steadily growing for months. You can have as many PoS wallets open on your computer minting from different coins at the same time as you like.

I'm the tech manager for a new crypto building on POS, ours is a variable proof of stake (VPOS) with a daily cap to force big holders to spread amongst multiple wallets and strengthen the network and blockchain.

I am doing some market research on other POS altcoins and came across this thread

Check us out: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=921241.0

Would appreciate any/all criticism, harsh or not Wink

Happy staking guys! Cheers

I dont know if you are aware however a great little alt which gives great returns is called SPROUTS coin (SPRTS)

Sprouts can be trades on the following exchanges :-

Cryptsy    - https://www.cryptsy.com/markets/view/SPRTS_BTC
Cointopia - https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange?market=SPRTS_BTC

Sprouts PoS Rates.
Code:
10% PoS payable on 5th day.
2% PoS each day thereafter until stake has minted.
Example

6th day = 12%
7th day = 14%
