SolidCoin 2 is announced on September 17, 2011, 07:18:33 AM. Instead of SolidCoin 1 which is GPU, this was GPU resistant. The additional advantages as described by Coinhunter :
1) You can still mine other coins like Bitcoin whilst simultaneously mining SolidCoins on your CPU
2) The amount of coins generated will be the same as the network adjusts difficulty based on number of hashes
No more need to run a separate miner, you can connect to your own
client and pools from SolidCoin v2.0 itself, much easier to get your
friends mining which will bring balance to the network
SolidCoin joined the interesting GPU resistant coins such as FairBrix, TeneBrix and Litecoin.
