Hathor is a new crypto-currency solving quite a few issues with current mainstream blockchains. There is no fees when you send or receive coins with it. Transactions are always free. Built-in atomic swaps allows to exchange tokens reliably within a single transactions. Their future nano-contract technologies can use oracles to connect to the real world to get information. They use both a blockchain and a DAG system intertwined to get the best of both worlds.
This coin is meant for ASICs and will probably have petahash level of hashrate soon, its pretty much the only chance to get some with GPUs before some ASIC farms figure out how to implement that new stratum in their miners!
EDIT: The time has come, it's done for GPUs
From their website:
You don’t have to pay anything when sending or receiving tokens.Built-in Atomic Swap
Different tokens can be reliably exchanged on the same transaction.Nano Contracts
An easier and safer implementation of Smart Contracts which connects real world data (oracles).Improve Nano Contracts Capabilities
More built-in nano contracts will be developed to become easily available for everyone.Oracles
Oracle integration will be implemented, so we can have external inputs on our nano contracts.Side-DAG / Side-Chain
Users will be able to have an external DAG of transactions that communicate with the main Hathor network. It will even be possible to have a private DAG that is secured by the main DAG.Extend ERCs Token Compatibilities
We will extend the possibilities of tokens created on our platform being compatible with more ERCs (e.g. 721, 1400).DEX of Tokens
With built-in atomic swaps, we can build a true decentralized exchange for all tokens in our platform.

How to mine it on Linux?
From docker, Install docker using:
sudo apt-get install docker.io docker-compose -y
Then run the docker with: (Replace the address with yours)
docker run -it hathornetwork/ccminer -a sha256d --coinbase-addr <YOUR_ADDRESS> -o stratum+tcp://stratum.node5.mainnet.hathor.network:8081
If you get the error message: ccminer: error while loading shared libraries: libcuda.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory, you need to install nvidia-docker package. Then, you will run nvidia-docker instead of docker only.
