F2Pool Mining Guide – VTC (VertCoin)

About VTC (VertCoin)

Vertcoin was created as a graphics card mined version of Bitcoin in Jan 2014 as response to Litecoin succumbing to ASIC control. It is important that everyday people with desktop computers can mine the network so that network hashrate is as decentralized as possible.
