The “Clone” column is meant purely technical. Like copy the code of another coin, change version number, name, genesis block, logo and be done with it.

The “Scam” column is very subjective and not meant to be exact.

The “Twist” column is for easier identification, not a rating the coin. Take it neutral.

Now please give some feedback! Is this helpful? What coins should I add?

    Very nice post!

    Great breakdown. Especially for those just getting involved.

    I hope there are plans to keep this list updated as changes in crypto come along.

    Keep up the good work!

    SKC and XDC? They are using different algo. Also XDC is the only automobile fans oriented coin and retargets faster than SKC, although they both (still) lack KGW.

    Can you add Marinecoin, I am the developer of MTC, I would like to see Marinecoin on the list. you can say anything about it feel free to type, just put it on the list. Thank you.

    XDC is ideal for car spare parts – fast transfer, the network is not loaded heavily. Stable cheap price, limited supply
