Past few days I have been looking at free VPS trials etc to see which ones allow mining and that actually work when processing the hashes. For 4 days now I have set up 9 FREE VPS systems and are all still functioning and mining as of today. So, I wanted to share my tutorial with everyone interested in a free VPS for mining Monero, which seems to be the most profitable cryptocurrency. My tutorial is quick and simple and should work with any CentOS 8 system. Good luck and Happy Mining! Links at the bottom of the page.
Sorry if this post seems straight to the point, just wanted to get it out there for you guys so you didn’t miss out.

Some people say Digital Ocean isn’t working, I have 6 droplets set up and they have been working for about 4 days now. So, if you want to try it, be my guess, as I can only go off what I’ve experienced.
