Coinhive needs payment for new account

in coinhive •  7 months ago

Had someone out of the blue come into the VidYen discord and tell me that they had to pay 200 British pounds for Coinhive license. I was... "Wait what?"

And sure enough:

My old account still works so I suppose I am grandfathered in so I will keep Coinhive supported by VYPS for the time being.

However, makes me kind of glad I put together the VY256 Miner so I don't have to actually use them in case I do.

Although, I kind of like the idea that there is no some sort of baseline test for account holders so they are not installing silent miners on websites and malware, I think it would be better to just keep it free but with the consent (like I do).

Anyways... Enough shameless self promotion... If you are still interesting in browser mining but can't afford the invite fee, feel free to download my plugin...

Otherwise you can download by searching for VYPS or VidYen in your WordPress plugin section on your site.

Any technical issues feel free to ping me on my Discord:
