Why Vertcoin? Learn about why ASIC Resistance matters!

00:00 Vertcoin is a currency similar to Bitcoin or Litecoins, with the major differentiating factor being that it is committed to being an ASIC resistant coin, which means it can only be mined by GPUs.
00:11 So that means that anybody from, you know kids sitting in his dorm room in New York or somebody sitting in China and in their home can be mining the coin, so it can't be mined by really expensive ASIC machines.
00:23 When we talk about the vision of Satoshi Nakamoto being decentralized currency, where bitcoin and litecoin and some of these other coins kind of fail do that, is with these consolidated ASIC farms that are owned by just a handful of people that are processing all of the transactions.
00:38 So with Vertcoin, it decentralizes the mining and the processing power of that blockchain to just that everyman.
00:45 Anybody who feels like they want to get involved in mining and get involved and invest in mining equipment to mine Vertcoin and they can rest assured that even if Vertcoin becomes the most popular cryptocurrency in the world, there will never be ASIC developed for it that only fat cats can afford to run.
01:00 Another thing that is kind of part of the ecosystem of bitcoin and litecoin and Vertcoin which is that those three coins are all segwit enabled, which is a scalability solution for those blockchain.
01:12 So Vertcoin is one of the first, if not the first to enable segwit and it pretty much gives them the ability to be on the Lightning Network which allows for something called atomic swaps.
01:22 Vertcoin in essence can work as a payment mechanism for Bitcoin for example or you can seamlessly swap with in the wallet using this lightning network technology which creates a scalability solution not only for Vertcoin but for bitcoin and litecoin as well.
01:38 The social media venues for twitter at, you know just @Vertcoin, reddit r slash Vertcoin and the discord and you can pretty much find the links to all three of them right on the web site and you'll find a lot of great other information.
