BERN is a PoW/PoS hybrid. This means that coins are generated through both Proof of Work mining and Proof of Stake minting. Both PoW and PoS are processing BERN transactions and validating transactions. You are rewarding for doing so. Thanks to ‘easy pool mining’, PoW mining has never been simpler! Just a click of a button and you are pool mining BERN with your CPU! GPU mining is much more efficient but, needs additional and more sophisticated software.
