Virtus coin (Project VirtusPay)


Virtus is a new next generation coin built from Dash. Virtus (means valor, masculinity, perfection, character and dignity, perceived as male strengths) uses Tribus algorithm for proof of work. Just like Dash it does not rely on any sort of central authority. It is open-source and uses peer-to-peer technology - maintained only by the the Virtus network. We want Virtus to be a genuinely valuable currency. With low block rewards and low overall supply we try to accomplish this. We believe in the simple supply and demand economic model. The frequent block halving will also help to make this a coin with increased scarcity and value.


We know how difficult it is for small miners to compete with the giants of the industry. Therefore, we chose the PoW Tribus algorithm. It is resistant to NiceHash service and is not supported by ASICs. In addition, for a uniform and fair distribution of the initial award, we made a slow start.

NiceHash resistence ASIC resistence Anti Instamine

One of the tasks of our team is the introduction of a new economic model of masternodes. We plan to implementation a three-level masternode system (for example, lowMN, medMN and highMN). This unique system will allow Virtus to use new real projects that require level distribution in decision making. In addition, this will increase the attractiveness of the VirtusPay project for investors

The second task of our team is the development of a new algorithm proof of work. This algorithm will have high energy efficiency and new calculation methods. Existing huge GPU-farms will no longer be able to dominate, and the idea of decentralization will reach a new level. In addition, this step will greatly complicate the extraction of coins and the initial investors will receive substantial profits from the growth of the Virtus rate.
