Myriad is a cryptocurrency that supports 5 algorithms, catering for ASIC, GPU and CPU mining. Currently, those algorithms consist of SHA256d, Scrypt, Myr-Groestl, Argon2d, and Yescrypt. Myriad’s multi-algorithm approach offers 51% attack resistance as a range of different hardware would be needed to find 51% of the blocks. Merge mining is available on the SHA256d and Scrypt algorithms, enabling Myriad to take advantage of the hashrates used by the coins leveraging these algorithms (BTC, LTC)
How do I buy cryptocurrency?
While some cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, are available for purchase with U.S. dollars, others require that you pay with bitcoin or another cryptocurrency.
To buy cryptocurrencies, you’ll need a “wallet,” an online app that can hold your currency. Generally, you create an account on an exchange, and then you can transfer real money to buy cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or ethereum.
Coinbase is one popular cryptocurrency trading exchange where you can create both a wallet and buy and sell bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
