    Let’s face it, today’s internet users are adept at ignoring ads of any kind on websites. Adblock and other ad blockers which can even block annoying YouTube video ads are gaining popularity. Naturally, because of this, ad revenues are lost, leaving web publishers without recourse.

    A couple weeks ago, The Pirate Bay began using an in-browser Monero cryptocurrency (similar to Bitcoin, but with a focus on anonymity) miner which uses JavaScript running in the background, unbeknownst to the user. Many users said they prefer mining in the background rather than viewing ads which can often lead to websites containing viruses, malware and even ransomware.

    This past weekend, Showtime websites were found to be running a similar script, as pointed out by users on Twitter. The sites included showtime.com and showtimeanytime.com

    Is this a sign of things to come?

    yes its interesting, i tried implementing on my site to test as well.
    it uses cpu coupled with javascript mining, the cpu usage went thru the roof at 100%, though im not sure how profitable it is, its definitely no where near 29$ just with 10-20 miners.

    CH payout fee is 30%? i used an alternative that only charge 12% but still i guess it will require millions of visitors to generate only v low reward..

    after running for a day or so mining monero

    maybe my machine not as good? im not sure. if someone have any test result would be interesting to see..

    Mining happens on specialized hardware. Desktop computers, and especially low powered stuff most surfers use (laptops, tablets, smartphones and such bs) are not competitive for mining, and haven't been for 5 years+.

    It's one of those ideas that sounds good to the ignorant, then you try it out and discover that nope, not even close.

    that's right. it got me excited when i first saw it, until tested to see its not that actually.
    another factor is their server as well how fast or many can they process.. since its using javascript api to connect to them.
    Other's are suggesting to use GPU, it would be faster theorthicaly and can be implemented but again, there are many factors as well,
    some laptops dont support gpu mining and some users use older mobile to browse.

    but overall a good idea towards replacing ads but not for the advertisers.

    I've done this before as well with Javascript except I limited the CPU usage. What would be really impressive is if we coded it to use WebGL.

    I don't think so. If they find a way to avoid triggering the antivirus it could be a viable solution.

    Antivirus doesn't respond to what's being talked about here AFAIK.

    crypto-loot - 12%
    hashforcash - 5% (not sure when they go live)

    right now crypto loot is not blocked like CH.
    maybe it will soon? but hope it helps :)

    If there is no way for antivirus to track if a site is using your cpu to mine then this will have to be the new norm.
    I would rather browse a add free website that uses 20% of my cpu to mine then have an interface cluttered with ads.
    From what I have read atm sites get flagged because the websites providing the service(hosting the script) are discovered.

    I really think it would even be morally better - rather then turning my browser in a botnet for personal information traders, I would instead be supporting a virtual currency.

    When browser mining first became a thing I thought people will embrace it. I dont get why everyone shuns this way of monetizing. You are using parts of your computer to accesses a website - you dont get mad when you overclock your gpu to run some shitty RPG, but god forbid some site dare use more of my cpu power.

    I think getting virtual currency for a virtual product sounds very good.

    There's already Minerblocker browser extensions to stop coin mining. It's interesting to see if those gain popularity when more sites start mining instead of showing ads.

    I used CH for like 2 days and then my AVAST started calling it malware when i went to my own site.. i immediately discontinued it..
    Had a decent run for like 4-5K visits..
    Will likely use hashforcash as soon as it starts.. I hope they find a solution to stop this AV detection insanity.. like its not a fucking virus.. these adblocker type companies which are now also blocking cryptomining are like the fucking SJWs of the online monetization sphere..
    I think that if they can make a polymorphic JS or something which is different in each instance and cant be detected by AV then it would be great..and would use.. currently AVs are cockblocking browser mining

    What type of warnings from AV's are you and your traffic are getting?
    What was the payout for his kind of hashrate?

    IMO, it's really no good without a CPU limiter which can be made. Lookup "Javascript detect CPU usage." Last I checked, there's a hack to do it. If you can detect CPU usage, you can limit it.

    CH is too risky for now as AV puts this mining thing as trojan or malicious and gets warning notice when someone tries to visit your site loaded with this.
    and cloudflare ditch any site that uses CH as well, they see this as malware.

    CH min payout i think is 0.5 xmr which if at the price of $86, you will need or get $43usd.
    0.0001xmr per 1m harshes is roughly $0.0086
    rockshock stat is earning around $4.9 for 4-5k visits

    All js miners are detected as malware by 99% of antiviruses. Who will stay on a website that triggers the antivirus?

    You will lose your visitors in long term doing this, you are sky rocketing their electricity consumption which is not cool and everyone will notice that their computers/laptops fan is going to full power mode.

    If you can change the script to just use 10% of the cpu no one will notice it.


    It's also not healthy for the hardware to run at 100% all the time (heat).

    Did you manage to use other solutions like Papoto since?
    What do you guys think about this being a viable, legitimate source of income soon?
