Mining is an alternative approach to getting cryptocurrencies rather than buying them with cash. However, for mining to be successful, it involves the use of pool and it is done for a fee. The better the pay outs, the costly it will be. It has been noted that newer cryptocurrencies such as Belacoin, Ambercoin and Megacoin are one of the few to be easily mined.
Cryptocurrency are the digital gold and the money of the future. To name a few, we have Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple. Before you invest, I suggest you investigate and gather feedback's from people who have invested in them. Try to be open minded and neutral as possible with a wide range research material with first hand information. You have to learn before you invest and be cautious. Be aware of all the market cap which tells you more or the less the value of your cryptocurrency.
