Akroma (AKA) is one of the newest Ethereum forks (Ethash algo) that looks promising for GPU mining. It is not as popular as Ethereum, which is why the network hashrate is not as saturated, yet.
If you want to know my thoughts on why Akroma might be a good coin to mine, check my full review of the coin.
Just like any Ethash algo, Akroma can be mined with GPUs, you might want to add a couple of Acorns to your rig to lift the hashrate. You can also try the Ethlargement Pill for this algo if using Nvidia GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti.
While NVidia cards work with this algo, AMD ones proved to perform the best (at least from the standpoint of price/performance).

Why Mining Akroma
In my humble opinion, Akroma is not yet another shitcoin. Instead, it is a working project that aims to solve an existing issue in the crypto world. Its dev team is active and transparent; their approach is one of the key things that make Akroma different from most other coins out there.
As for today, mining and dumping your coins straight away might not be more profitable than when mining Ethereum, though there is a chance Akroma market is going to go up in the near future. Personally, I prefer to mine and hold my AKAs. You do what you see fit best.
