Mining Achievable by the Masses: A Review of MinerGate’s Revolutionary Altcoin Mining Software is a multi-currency mining pool, which formed in 2014 by a group of cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Although this mining pool had its beginnings rooted in the mining of Bitcoin, today MinerGate provides free mining software and opportunities for Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin, CryptoNote, Monero, Bytecoin, DuckNote, MonetaVerde, Aeon, Dashcoin, and many other altcoins.

To see how it all began, you can read the historical announcement made by MinerGate on the forum located here:

The primary realization that led MinerGate to its recent success was the adaptability of CPU mining. By integrating the classic CPU mining systems into the complicated modern GPU systems, MinerGate was able to release software that was simple enough and lightweight enough for just about anyone to successfully install and use while still maintaining the high performing options and capabilities of the modern mining systems.
