Dimecoin (DIME) is inspired by Quark and uses a SHA-3 hashing algorhthm for mining. It is one of the more innovative cryptocurrencies and is Asic resistent. This means it can be mined with a CPU or GPU after the introduction of Scrypt Asics. Dimecoin is probably one of the most undervalued cryptocoins on the market. The coin was abandoned by the original developer. It was rescued by Dimelord, who realised the potential in it. With the help from various people the development duties have been dealt with by him, including setting up the coin as a "foundation" with the intent to increase Dimecoin's market share.
