Today I saw a tweet from @ben that had a dev.to link talking about ads that made me remember something that I saw some weeks ago:
Concepts (I got this from their website):
Captcha: We offer an easy to implement captcha-like service where users need to solve a number of hashes (adjustable by you) in order to submit a form. This prevents spam at an inconvenience that is comparable to a classic captcha. All with the added benefit of earning you money.
Shortlinks: If you have an URL you'd like to forward your users to, you can create a cnhv.co shortlink to it. The user has to solves a number of hashes (adjustable by you) and is automatically forwarded to the target URL afterwards.
I think this super interesting in captcha and short links but I would not like it that much if all my tabs are mining at the same time.
Do you think that this will become the new ads?
Do you know some potential problems that we could encounter as users?
Please share your opinion.
