Auroracoin is a cryptocurrency for Iceland. It is based on litecoin and is 50% premined. The premined coins will be distributed to the entire population of Iceland, commencing on midnight 25th of March 2014. Auroracoin is designed to break the shackles of the fiat currency financial system in Iceland.

Iceland has been hit hard by financial meltdown and inflation. Not only did the entire banking system collapse in 2008, but the monetary history of Iceland is one of inflation, devaluation and currency controls. Auroracoin is an opportunity for Icelanders to free themselves from currency controls and government debasement of the currency.

Auroracoin is based on the Litecoin protocol. However, it is started by the “Airdrop” of premined auroracoins to the Icelandic nation, designed to reach almost every Icelander. This one-time event will create the conditions for Icelanders to start using the currency, by providing them with a start and making them aware of the currency and its possibilities. After the Airdrop, the only way to acquire auroracoins will be through mining and transacting.

pxlcoin-alternative-crypto

PXLcoin (PXL) is another alternative Scrypt crypto coin, however here the algorithm being used by the coin is not the most interesting thing about it, in fact it is the least interesting one. The Million Dollar Homepage was created in 2005, where people could purchase pixels on the site for $1 and then upload an image and hyperlink. As people began buying up those pixels and uploading their images, the homepage was filled out and internet history was created.

PXLCoin official website contains a new canvass for the cryptocurrency community. Instead of charging “real” money, each pixel on the site can be purchased using PXLs. Upload whatever your imagination desires – your clan logo, pictures of your doge, a business logo or advertisement – whatever you want. And the image can also link to a web URL.
