Monero is one of the few cryptocurrency that can still be mined using a CPU; however, the GPU can provide significant and often more valuable performance improvements. If you interested in Mining I prefer Veil Coin. Veil is a privacy coin built for fast transactions with “nearly nonexistent” fees. Itself by shifting from PoW to PoS. The earnings algorithm also see-saws between masternodes and stakes in an effort to distribute block rewards without bias.
To start staking Veil, you’ll need to download the official wallet, sync it with the blockchain, transfer some currency into the wallet, then leave it connected.
