A lot of people do not like much Proof of Stake (PoS) coins as quite a lot of these do not have a long lifespan and are generally considered a loss of time and money, however there are some coins that have endured the test of time. Some of these coins might be an interesting option to invest into by buying and making some profit from the staking and future increase in their value, below we have compiled a short list of some such coins with a bit more details about each one and a link to the announcement thread on Bitcointalk where you can get additional information to help you make a decision. The focus of the list are coins with higher annual interest rate as if there is just 1% or less per year you can only hope to gain profit by long term increase of the value of the coin. When considering PoS coins that might be interesting for long term investment you should look for ones with higher interest rate that start at about 5% annually, but be careful with ones that have a very high interest rate as that might not be that good. Other things to look for include an active and bigger community of users, the coin being traded on larger altcoin exchanges such as Bitttrex or Poloniex with a decent volume. Check our list below with some such coins that we consider that are worth checking out in more detail if you are interested in making investment in Proof of Stake coins, the list may be missing some coins, so feel free to point additional ones in the comments below…

PoS is as secure as the exchanges they trade on. Look what happened to Vericoin when Mintpal was hacked, they lost security of the blockchain and had to implement an unplanned hardfork reversing all transactions, legitimate or not.

So you’re basically investing in the security of the exchanges not the PoS coin

My vericoin wallet is encrypted on my hard drive and backed up to my personal cloud storage. Don’t think minpal’s shotty security would have impacted me.

Looks like they as a courtesy and to avoid this hacker having 51% of the currency “Stake” they decided to fork it. Legitimate transactions would still have went through just they were attempting to deny the unauthorized withdraw from mintpal’s hot wallet. Which was a legitimate authorized transaction based on the network’s point of view. Any “larger” sum I would keep out of online wallets and store locally unless you are 100% confident in a companies security to protect it.

You should look at Bitstar (BITS). It’s one of the oldest PoS coins, and still has a very strong blockchain with long-term holders. It’s traded on both Poloniex and Bittrex. Had a 35% return for the first year. Currently at 25% return. It’s also a core SuperNET coin.
