Are there any altcoins that claim immunity to the 51% attack?

Ya man, VTC has active, creative Devs and a sophisticated community...
And I mean serious people that are demanding a serious coin... not the usual retarded alt pumpers.

Now if they adjusted rewards, say, give 10% more to P2P miners = radical game changer.

VTC is what LTC was supposed to be... and it's cheap right now.

All the PoS coins are immune to 51% attacks. 

Peercoin, Blackcoin, Pandacoin, Mintcoin, etc.

Add Qora to that list.

Funny how POW guys used to hold up security as a problem with POS.

all the peercoin derivatives with working checkpoint servers are sufficiently immune to the attack. the immunity only extends to the last checkpointed block, so if you can find the checkpointing server and gain access or ddos it you can then 51% Attack the coin if you have enough mining power, but it will only rollback to the last checkpointed block.

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

What I don't like is thatg any big money interest like a government, Federal reserve or major bank wants to kick Bitcoin in the nuts they just need to use one of their NSA quantum computers to mine the shit out of Bitcoin or any POW coin.

MYR - 5 mining algs with independent difficulty ratios.  Need different forms of hardware to make 51% possible.  Extremely impractical.
