SocketMiner offers a Browser based web miner for the Monero Blockchain that you can embed on your websites anonymously. We utilize Monero as it is the most fitting for web based mining, and supports the underlying principles of privacy. Your visitors automatically run the miner in their Browser and mine XMR for you in return for an ad-free experience, on-site currency or whichever incentives you decide on.
We are excited to see how you will use our service. We dream about it as an alternative to micro payments, artificial wait time in online games, intrusive ads and dubious marketing tactics.
Your users can “pay” you with full privacy, without registering an account anywhere, without installing a browser extension and without being bombarded by shady ads. They will pay you with just their CPU power.
Monero is different. To mine Monero, you have to calculate hashes with an algorithm called Cryptonight. This algorithm is very compute heavy and – while overall pretty slow – was designed to run well on consumer CPUs.
We'd like to further close this gap and are working on solutions to do so.
