Why?

Entropycoin is a new alt coin that pays tribute to the great matemeticians and physicists of the past and present. Entropy is often discussed within the field of information theory. In that context the probability of a coin toss is often used to explain it. What better then, to make an alt coin celebrating entropy?

Entropycoin uses the Scrypt-N algorithm. The Scrypt-N algorithm is much more memory intensive than standard scrypt making it more ASIC resistant. In addition, Entropycoin is one of only about 15 coins using this algorithm (at the moment). Compare that with hundreds of standard scrypt coins.
