Crypto Mining with your home computer is not really recommended from a profit perspective. It'll more than likely cost you more in electricity than you'll earn.
However for fun and educational purposes it's an easy way to get started. And as you read on and learn, you'll find ways to make your computer profitable.
Maybe one day these coins could be worth some good value, but currently you will not make any profit mining from your computers.
If you want to profit directly from mining, then you'll need an ASIC or a GPU Mining Rig.
Right, so if we don't want to spend our hard earned on buy Crypto directly, then one option is to mine them. This can be as easy or as hard as you want it.
For this guide we'll cover the easy options, once I've finished writing the whole My Crypto Power Learn guide, I'll be coming back to write some more advanced mining guides.
If you want to mine directly in your Browser, you have a few options;

Another good one I've been using is Allcoins, you mine and rewarded with Satoshi, but they have an exchange with no fee's, you can then withdraw to
FaucetHub.There are lots of other ways to earn with this one but I'll save the details for My Crypto Power Earn and a review post on Allcoins
The software is pretty simple, there is a Legacy Miner for older hardware or those that like things a bit more technical. Then there is the Version 2 miner which is pretty simple.
You can also rent Hashing power from them. That's something we'll investigate later as you'll need some coin to do this.
Another popular choice is Minergate, they have customer software which is easy to use and supports multiple Crypto's with low withdrawal limits.
