An alternative cryptocurrency disrupting the already rather disrupting crypto market. It does not use a typical SHA-256 algorithm, but instead relies on a different SHA-3 (Keccak) that makes it ASIC proof for now at least. You can mine it with either a CPU, though with GPU mining also available there will not be much point in using the CPU. You need to use a specialized mining client based on cgminer for GPU mining. Considering the fact that this is still very new crypto and it already has a few smaller exchanges supporting trades is a good sign for potential in this one.
