What is Zcash CPU mining?

CPU mining is a process in which the computing resources of a central processing unit of a personal computer is deployed for mining of Zcash cryptocurrency. The first cryptocurrency Bitcoin came to the advent in the event when Satoshi Nakamoto whom nobody knows who he is passed his white paper in an internet forum regarding the possibility of a digital cryptocurrency as that which is free from the clutches of any centralized authority.
