I started building a new site for my event, Crypto Night in Tokyo. While putting it together I remembered that there are browser miners you can integrate that will mine crypto when someone visits your site. So I decided to look into one and I think I found a winner.
This plugin actually allows you to use one of two different services, Coinhive or Coinimp. I haven't looked into Coinimp yet so I won't comment on it. Coinhive however seems to work fine. After installing the plugin you then go into the settings of the plugin. Here you can control different variables for mining. You will also need to put in your public & private keys from Coinhive which I will get to next.
Once you get to this point you will need to set up your Coinhive account. While doing that you should also have your Monero wallet address handy to set up where your payments will go to.
Once you have your keys you can then return and put them in the Coin-miner settings. After doing that and saving you're set up! Pretty easy.
Back to the Coinhive site, you need to set up your Monero wallet address in the "Payments" section. You have time to do this though because unless you have a high traffic site you probably won't be earring the minimum payout amount for a while.
Another function of the Coinhive site is it will track mining data for you. Coinminer will too, but it's more crude than Coinhive.
I'm testing this out to see how people react to it. If I get too many complaints I'll shut it off, but I think it is a great alternative to advertising. As long as POW is around I can see it becoming more popular. It sure beats all those pop-up ads and other BS advertising we are bombarded with.
