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.
Dimecoin uses a SHA-3 cryptographic hash function subset of the cryptographic family Keccak. It is closely related to Quark and also uses further algorithms and unique hashing functions (Blake, Groestl, Blue Midnight Wish, jh, and Skkein).
