Skycoin was created as an answer to the shortcomings of both Bitcoin and Ethereum. Born out of necessity, no other coin was fulfilling Satoshi’s original vision of a fully decentralized digital currency. Skycoin’s platform is free from centralization and manipulation through its revolutionary Obelisk consensus algorithm. It features CX, a turing complete programming language built from the ground up to allow hundreds of thousands of devs to easily deploy applications to the blockchain. Skycoin functions as a currency with virtually-free transactions, soon-to-be-implemented absolute privacy, and Visa-like speeds with inherent asset-backed value not based on speculation.

Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Ethereum Classic is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that can be run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, or third party interference. Ethereum Classic consists of a cryptocurrency (ETC), a blockchain ledger, and an ecosystem of applications and services that run on top of it. ETC allows uncensorable smart contracts to be written, deployed and executed; it enables truly unstoppable programmable money. Ethereum Classic is the continuation of the original non-forked Ethereum (ETH) chain and exists to preserve the principle of “code is law”.
Monacoin, conceived in the December of 2013, is the first alternative cryptocurrency developed in Japan. It is based on the popular ASCII art character, Mona. Monacoin is not a payment system controlled by one single entity, but a fully distributed payment system preserved by everyone who uses it via client applications running on their computers.
