Skeincoin (SKC) is another alternative cryptographic currency that uses a different algorithm – the Skein hashing algorithm combined with SHA256 hashing as Proof of Work. Skeincoin hashing is fast and can be implemented for CPU, GPU, FGPA and ASIC. Note that the use of a specialized algorithm means that Skeincoin requires a specialized miner in order to be able to mine SKC.

EXCHANGES
Atomic Trade

atomic-trade-crypto-currency-exchange

Atomic Trade is a relatively new and still not that big crypto currency exchange that has a bit different approach compared to other traditional crypto trading websites. Here you are stimulated to be active on the exchange in various ways and you get rewards for being an active member, including using the chat functionality of the exchange. And unlike other chats on crypto exchanges that are essentially trollboxes with not much of useful or helpful information, on Atomic Trade you can actually find some help and useful information from other members. You can even meet and talk with the exchange admin as well as some pool operators all while you are trading some crypto coins on the exchange itself.

The crypto currency exchange Atomic Trade does support trading of multiple currencies, including some newer and not so popular that you can hardly find on other decent exchanges. Among the standard BTC and LTC trading here you can also trade XPM, FTX, WDC, BLC, HBN, PXL, LOT, MED, FRK, SKC, UNO, VTC and ATP. We have discovered the Atomic Trade exchange while looking for good exchange for trading BlakeCoin (BLC) and since that we kind of liked it a lot and started trading other cryptos there as well. The ATP or Atomic Trade Points are the so called bonus points that you get while trading and generally being active on the exchange in various other ways, but the interesting thing with these is that aside from trading them on the exchange for BTC, while they are in your account balance they bring you profit from the trading fees collected by the exchange. So in a way the ATP are something like shares in the exchange that bring you dividends, and every 6 hours you get your bonus based on the amount of ATP you currently have in your balance. We really like the community that is forming at the Atomic Trade and would definitely recommend you to try it out, especially if you are trading alternative crypto coins such as BlakeCoin (BLC) among others.
