    From my very basic understanding, the only currency worth mining now (with CPU / GPU) is XMR (aka monero) for immediate ROI. It is even truer these days as it just increased by 75% over the last week or so.

    Others, require a massive investment in hardware. ETH would never support ASIC mining so it is very hard with a basic config and it is apparently the reason why it is popular.

    i think you should consider ZEC, it's non ASIC and work well with GPU , cpu still can but it's not optimal, ethereum will change to POS soon it might be there are jumping price when it's realized but in long run POS are so not good imo

    Eth sucks. Did it, and everything about it is so convoluted. I am an early investor in bitcoin, Back when it was $20 (ya, I was trying to buy fun material on the old silk road), and it was never as stupid as Eth has been in my experience.
