Discussion on: Mining cryptocurrencies instead of having ads?

I think the massive drain of battery & resources without consent will probably be a turn-off for the majority of users. They'll either use adblock to block this or just avoid sites that use coinhive. I do see this being a good opt-in alternative for ads for the minority of users that'll be OK with it. If that fits economically then I don't really see a reason not to offer that option to users.
