Originally released in 2013, Bitcoin-sCrypt debuted as a truly decentralized alternative to Bitcoin-core by focusing on decentralizing mining and development, but with the same maximum total coin supply (21 million coins).
With renewed community interest, the price of Bitcoin-sCrypt has skyrocketed in value since 2016, with the biggest price gains after the recent December 2017 announcement of the Bitcoin-sCrypt revival:
Jan 2016: 1 BTCS = $0.0003
Jan 2017: 1 BTCS = $0.0015
Jan 2018: 1 BTCS = $0.1000
With faster transaction times and lower transaction fees than Bitcoin-core, Bitcoin-sCrypt is billed as the more useful alternative.
