Mining Cryptocurrency often involves high upfront costs to obtain the best hardware with most competitive hash rates. Without this, it is little more than a hobby as it is less expensive to just buy coins such as Ether, Bitcoin, or Monero instead. There is one project that offers a new approach to mining that is very simple to set-up, and can even let you use out of date hardware such as an iPad, or even embed within your blog.
JSE aims to be an alternative to the current approaches for monetizing websites and traffic, such as banners or traditional advertising. The amount of energy needed to perform the hashes while viewing content is less than actually loading a video advertisement. This could be a big win for both content creators as well as their audience, as it creates a steady revenue stream just by people viewing their page while improving page loads and browsing experience.
JSE also offers merchant tools, which allows the developer to receive payments for goods, services and subscriptions in the form of JSE coin. Creating an ecosystem that allows developers to earn and receive JSE Coins while also incentivizing people to purchase them, using goods and services as a floor on the coin value, opens up some very interesting applications here.
Take a few minutes and try out the mining experience, and see if this is something of interest to you. Enjoy!
