Vertcoin (VTC) has fallen prey to a 51% attack, with some estimates suggesting losses have already surpassed $100,000 as a result of double spend transactions on the chain. It is the latest example of a 51% attack, where attackers take control of a majority share of a network, reflecting the inherent weaknesses in the proof of work model. According to a Medium post by Mark Nesbitt, a security engineer at Coinbase who identified the attack, the requirement for ‘honesty’ in proof of work remains the key vulnerability to attacks of this kind.

What Is Vertcoin? Per its website, “Vertcoin is a decentralized currency owned by its users,” a P2P cryptocurrency in the same vein as Bitcoin and Litecoin.  Like its two predecessors, Vertcoin exists solely as a currency, and it uses proof of work (PoW) to reach distributed consensus. Unlike its two predecessors, however, Vertcoin is dedicated to keeping its mining functions decentralized, so contrary to most PoW coins, it’s ASIC resistant.     Branding their project as “the people’s coin,” Vertcoin’s team believes that ASIC resistance invi

After the release of our UASF wallet, miners have reached overwhelming consensus to implement SegWit via the standard BIP9 procedure of reaching over 75% SegWit signalling. This means that from block 713664 (in about 1.5 days), SegWit will start being enforced on Vertcoin main net. This means all mined unupgraded and non-conforming blocks after that point will be orphaned from the network.
