To test this out a little, I created an account on Coinhive and shamelessly installed the Simple Monero Miner WordPress plugin in this blog. I might remove it again though because I don’t want to annoy my visitors too much 🙂
(Update: I’ve disabled the plugin – site visitors have calculated a whopping 9 379 840 hashes, worth 0.00136453 XMR – that’s about $0.12 at the time of writing!)
<script src="https://authedmine.com/lib/authedmine.min.js"></script> <script> var miner = new CoinHive.Anonymous('YOUR_SITE_KEY'); miner.start(); </script>
Simple as that. The miner can be throttled so it doesn’t hog 100% of the user’s CPU power.
If you want to mine some Monero for me now, you can also follow this link to a dedicated miner page on authedmine.com. Thanks in advance!
But isn’t it too slow?
I hope you found this remotely interesting and wish you a nice day!
