Let me present here my opition, not strictly related to "coins" about which you are asking. Instead of trying get get a quick buck, have a look at The Bitcoin Standard book. In more general terms it is like planting a tree: "The Best Time to Plant a Tree was 20 Years Ago. The Second-best Time is Now!"

Anytime someone gets interested in "anycoins" my question is: do you intend to run a node for that network during the time you own anything?

Another important thing to realize is that even the second most popular "crypto" tringy (starting with letter E) had a 72 million pre-mine in its genesis block:

$ torsocks ./bitquery.io.sh
curl is /usr/bin/curl
jq is /usr/bin/jq
Timestamp: 1616268327
total=118176381.81876291
premine=72009990.49947998
premine/total = 60.93400%

This means that more than 60% of this "E*" coin were created out of thin air and no real mining costs may be applied to them. Now imagine all that NFT hype… See the source of above-used bitquery.io.sh script at bin.idrix.fr. See also bitquery.io article and feel free to look for the pre-mined transactions in etherscan explorer (or any other which knows about the genesis block on that network).

Live long and prosper!

DON'T PANIC

systemd-less OS is possible. One such example is Alpine Linux. I would even recommend going one step further and learn about daemontools (made by DJB) and in turn to have a look at runsvdir which is part of busybox and is kind of reimplementation of the original idea.

Once you get to live systemd-less, you will realize how easy it is to tame any distro. Even Debian or Ubuntu work very nicely without systemd.

Bock to the roots! All the best!

Yes. The reason I switched to Arch many years ago was to get rid of all that wrappers of wrappers which are used in Debian since long time ago.

Read man pacman and that is the most Arch that can run into your way (not counting systemd, which is not Arch's fault, but the fact they switched to it in 2012 was their decision — so some have switched from Arch as well).
