The following cryptocoins match your criteria (sorted by popularity):
1. Dogecoin (DOGE) (2)
Dogecoin (DOGE) is an open-source, decentralised cryptocurrency forked from Luckycoin (a Litecoin fork) in December 2013. Its theme revolves around Shiba Inu, a well-known Japanese dog, which gave the coin its logo. Although Dogecoin started as a "joke currency", it quickly gained popularity, users and "miners" who generate new coins and help maintain the Dogecoin network. While the cryptocurrency uses the same hashing algorithm to process transactions as Litecoin (scrypt), it features a number of differences; notably faster block generation times (1 minute), uncapped total coin supply, and higher block reward (set to 10,000 DOGE per block in February 2015).
2. Reddcoin (RDD) (18)
Reddcoin (RDD) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in early 2014, but it was re-based on Bitcoin in August 2016. It is dedicated to tipping on social networks as a way of bringing cryptocurrency awareness and experience to the general public. Original announcement.
3. GoldCoin (GLD) (20)
GoldCoin (GLD) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in May 2013. It is a proof-of-work coin using "Golden River" (a variant of scrypt developed in house) as its hashing algorithm. The philosophy behind the coin's generation was modeled on the real-life finite supply of physical gold which is to be exhausted after 100 year of mining, creating some 123 million of goldcoins in the process. While GoldCoin wasn't pre-mined, it was launched with a highly disproportionate reward structure that dramatically favoured insiders and early miners. Original announcement.
4. Monacoin (MONA) (23)
Monacoin (MONA) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin and launched in January 2014 in Japan. Compared to its parent, the total coin supply is set to four times that of Litecoin (105 million), while the mining difficulty is re-targeted every block using the Dark Gravity Wave difficulty algorithm. The coin's block time generation of 1.5 minutes is faster than Litecoin's 2.5 minutes. Monacoin was launched with a 0% pre-mine. Original announcement.
5. Curecoin (CURE) (32)
Curecoin (CURE) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin and launched in May 2014. It is a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake coin which means that curecoins can be both mined (using the SHA-256 hashing algorithm) and minted (through the staking process). The project's mission is to take advantage of the available computing power that mines/mints curecoins to help with the process of protein folding (via Stanford University's [email protected] distributed computing project) and thus indirectly help researchers who work on curing diseases, such as cancer or Alzheimer's. Original announcement.
6. Dash (DASH) (33)
Dash (DASH) is a decentralised, open-source, digital cryptocurrency project forked from Litecoin in January 2014. Compared to Litecoin, Dash offers stronger transaction privacy and anonymity, while its software is more resistant to mining with specialist hardware. Better privacy is achieved through a technology called Darksend, a coin-mixing service that combines identical inputs from multiple users into a single transaction with several outputs which obfuscates the flow of funds. Dash has also developed and implemented a hashing algorithm called X11 which uses a sequence of 11 rounds of hashing for its proof-of-work consensus mechanism. To adjust mining difficulty over time, Dash uses an algorithm called Dark Gravity Wave, also developed in-house. The cryptocurrency project was formerly known as Darkcoin (DRK), but it was rebranded to Dash in March 2014. Original announcement.
7. Deutsche eMark (DEM) (43)
Deutsche eMark (DEM) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in 2013. Originating in Germany, the project is a nostalgic attempt to re-create the country's old "Deutschmark" as a digital currency. It is a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake cryptocurrency with SHA-256 as hashing algorithm. A total of 20 billion coins will be produced, with the first 500 million proof-of-work coins mined by the year 2051, exactly 50 years after the introduction of the euro. Original announcement.
8. PotCoin (POT) (46)
PotCoin (POT) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in January 2014. It was created with the goal of becoming the standard form of payment for the legalised marijuana industry. Technically, PotCoin is almost identical to Litecoin, with just a few differences: a shorter block generation time, quicker halving schedule, and a higher maximum number of coins. As a result of its name and nature, the cryptocurrency attracted a fair amount of attention in mainstream media and, unlike most cryptocurrencies, PotCoin was deemed sufficiently notable to keep a Wikipedia page. Original announcement.
9. Bata (BTA) (47)
Bata (BTA) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin and launched in May 2015. The project's focus is to provide strong privacy and transaction anonymity features by integrating its wallet client with anonymous I2P and Tor networks. Like its parent, Bata is a proof-of-work coin that uses the scrypt hasing algorithm for "mining", although the total coin supply has been limited to just 5 million (less than a quarter of Litecoin's). The cryptocurrency derives its name fromt the word "barter". Original announcement.
10. Gulden (NLG) (50)
Gulden (NLG), formerly known as Guldencoin, is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in March 2014. It is intended as a national cryptocurrency of the Netherlands. Like Litecoin, it uses scrypt as the hashing algorithm, but the total intended coin supply is higher than Litecoin's (1.68 billion). Additionally, Gulden uses Kimoto's Gravity Well to adjust coin mining difficulty. The Subway franchise in the Dutch town of Leeuwarden was the first restaurant to accept Gulden, thus starting a tentative cryptocurrency revolution in the country. Original announcement.
11. Florincoin (FLO) (61)
Florincoin (FLO) is a decentralised cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in July 2014. Like its parent, it is a proof-of-work coin that uses the scrypt hashing algorithm to mine coins and process transactions. However, the project has implemented or has plans to implement several interesting additions, such as very fast transaction times (40 seconds), a decentralised messaging system, and a storage/backup database (called Alexandria) which the developers plan to use to power decentralised applications of the future. Florincoin was launched with a 0% pre-mine. Original announcement.
12. Earthcoin (EAC) (66)
Earthcoin (EAC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in December 2013. The project has implemented a special payout system that depends on various aspects of the earth and its movement, with special bonuses awarded at the completion of seasons, moon cycles and calendar months. Earthcoin delivers extremely fast transaction speeds of 30 seconds. Two percent of the total coin supply were pre-mined and used for promotions, giveaway, bounties, development and long-term support of the project. Original announcement.
13. Feathercoin (FTC) (77)
Feathercoin is an open-source digital currency forked from Litecoin in 2013. The project's main innovation is NeoScrypt, a processor-intensive hashing algorithm that makes it difficult to mine coins with specialist hardware, such as ASIC. Another interesting feature of Feathercoin is the implementation of "advanced checkpointing" in its blockchain to guard against the "51% attack", a known vulnerability in the Bitcoin software. The developers of Feathercoin have been experimenting with additional software and hardware projects not found in most other cryptocurrencies, e.g. development of ATMs and Point-of-Sales equipment, T-shirt wallets, laser-etched physical coins and several Raspberry Pi-based projects. Original announcement.
14. Gridcoin (GRC) (78)
Gridcoin (GRC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in 2013. Originally it was a proof-of-stake currency with scrypt as its hashing algorithm, but the original client is now being discontinued in favour of a new client called "Gridcoin Research", launched in October 2014. The most distinguishing feature this cryptocurrency is a consensus mechanism called "Proof of Research" which is able to cryptographically verify BOINC (Berkley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) computing tasks and which rewards the client with a cryptographic token for completing the task. BOINC currently hosts a series of scientific projects including cancer research, drug candidate testing, high-energy physics, space mapping and disease control. Original announcement.
15. DNotes (NOTE) (87)
DNotes (NOTE) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in February 2014. Compared to its parent, it has only a few minor modifications, such as the use of Kimoto's Gravity Well (patched for the "time warp" issue), a total supply of 500 million coins, and an annual 5% block reward reduction for coin miners. Besides developing the cryptocurrency, the project has also launched a number of unique initiatives; this includes attempts to attract more women to the cryptocurrency world by giving away free DNotes, programs offering solutions for student debt, and provisions of various savings incentives for the unbanked, children, and retirees. Original announcement.
16. e-Gulden (EFL) (88)
e-Gulden (EFL), also known as Electronic Gulden, is an open-source, decentralised cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in March 2014. It is intended as the national cryptocurrency of the Netherlands, bringing back the nostalgic feeling of the times before the country adopted the common European currency. Besides providing a digital payment solution, the project also has advocacy goals, promoting saving over consumption and attempting to preserve scarce natural resources. e-Gulden was heavily pre-mined, with 50% of the total coin supply retained by the e-Guilder Foundation. Original announcement.
17. SolarCoin (SLR) (109)
SolarCoin (SLR) is a decentralised and open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in early 2014. It is backed by two forms of proof of work; one is the traditional cryptographic proof of work associated with a digital currency, while the other is Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SREC) that has been generated and independently verified by a third party. SolarCoin is equitably distributed using both of these proofs of work as a means to reward renewable energy production. The intent is to provide an incentive to produce more solar electricity by rewarding the generators of solar electricity. In September 2015 the coin has become a pure proof-of-stake cryptocurrency paying an annual interest rate of 2%. Original announcement.
18. StartCOIN (START) (110)
StartCOIN (START) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in June 2014. It was conceived as the first cryptocurrency to support crowdfunding (through the StartJOIN.com platform), a way for start-up companies to raise funds in the Internet era. Technically, StartCOIN is a proof-of-work coin that uses the X11 array of hashing algorithms, DigiShield as the difficulty retargeting mechanism, and fast 1-minute transaction confirmation time. The total coin supply is 84 million startcoins, half of which were pre-mined; these are continuously being donated to new start-ups and active StartJOIN users. Original announcement.
19. CasinoCoin (CSC) (112)
CasinoCoin (CSC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked in July 2013 from Litecoin, although it also imported some features from Bitcoin, Feathercoin and Digitalcoin. It is designed specifically for the online casino gaming. It was launched as a response to increasing difficulties to deposit funds for online casino gaming due to deposit restrictions between centralised financial institutions and online casino platforms. The total coin supply is set to 336 million none of which were pre-mined. Original announcement.
20. CryptoEscudo (CESC) (113)
CryptoEscudo (CESC) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in March 2014. As the names suggests, it is intended as a national cryptocurrency of Portugal, borrowing the name of the old Portuguese currency before the country's adoption of the euro. CryptoEscudo differs from Litecoin in that its difficulty adjustment mechanism is based on Kimoto's Gravity Well where mining difficulty is adjusted after every single completed block of transactions. The cryptocurrency's total coin supply is capped at one billion units of which 45% were pre-mined. One half of the pre-mined coins is intended for an airdrop to the citizens of Portugal, while the other half is safeguarded for a future repayment of Portugal's national debt. Original announcement.
21. RubyCoin (RBY) (118)
RubyCoin (RBY) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency launched in February 2014. Initially, it appeared to be a fork if Litecoin, with a proof-of-work consensus mechanism, scrypt hashing algorithm, a total supply of 60 million coins, and a modest 2% premine. Starting with the November 2014 release of RubyCoin's wallet version 2.0, the cryptocurrency has switched to a pure proof-of-stake consensus mechanism, paying a flat 5% interest on staked coins to support the network. Its desktop client is a Qt5-based application with a custom ruby-coloured theme. Original announcement.
22. FastCoin (FST) (122)
FastCoin (FST) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in May 2013. Like its parent, FastCoin is a proof-of-work coin that uses scrypt as its hashing algorithm. However, it differs from Litecoin in that it deploys a custom difficulty adjustment mechanism to prevent "instamining", a process of rapid coin generation by insiders and very early adopters. It was launched with a zero pre-mine. FastCoin features a block generation target rate of 12 seconds with just 4 confirmations required, making it one of the fastest cryptocurrencies on the market in terms of block confirmation times (48 seconds). Original announcement.
23. Infinitecoin (IFC) (123)
Infinitecoin is an open-source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in 2013. Some of its features include high circulation volume (at 90.6 billion coins), fast transaction times, an advanced check-pointing system that limits the effect of 51% attacks, and a wallet message system that warns users to postpone transactions if security issues are discovered. Original announcement.
24. PopularCoin (POP) (126)
PopularCoin (POP) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in January 2014. It started as a proof-of-work cryptocurrency with a total supply of 4.9 billion coins and no premine, but the coin will eventually become a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake cryptocurrency, with the proof-of-stake part being called "proof of participation". This feature gives users an extra incentive to run the PopularCoin client as it generates free coins by allowing the participant to cast a vote on supplied polls for popular media in the entertainment sector. Original announcement.
