So, there are some folk who apparently use their websites to mine crypto. Instead of showing you ads, they eat up a bit of your computers processing power for their own mining operations. Now, this to me seems fishing and ethically and morally ambiguous unless there is some kind of notification.
Ads you can see. Unless I tell you I’m mining on your computer, you only notice a bit of a slow down.
While I wouldn’t mind a way to potentially monetize this site more, I can’t say I approve of stealing time from my readers like that.
So, while I am not against such an idea, I will say that I won’t do so on here unless I mention it. I can’t just do something like that and then not tell you about potential issues.
I AM using my webserver to try and mine Monero, but with a small script that doesn’t eat up a lot of power. This way even if there is no viewers I get a bit of something. and I keep the CPU load down. That way it doesn’t cause any issues for the viewers here or on Fanbards.net.
