Salon is trying to sweet-talk visitors into letting them mine Monero in the browser while you visit their website.
Look at them squirming around for paragraphs without saying what they're actually doing, and when they finally admit it, they try to pretend like you'd be participating in some important technological research.
>paying a small amount in electrical fees to be ad-free What's the problem here exactly?
How capitalist of them
>tell /g/ that this is going to happen in 2018 last year >You're just being paranoid XD normie sites won't do this bro lol
Nothing, but as someone pointed out, for whatever reason, they are really sneaky in the way they disclose it.
>For our beta program, we’ll start by applying your processing power to help support the evolution and growth of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.
While we are on the subject, would anyone care to help me support the evolution and growth of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies by sending me some BTC?
Oh by the way you can easily stop this and ALL paywalls by using Brave.
On Brave you simply flip the "block scripts" switch and it will block everything, along with trackers, ads, malicious adware, etc. etc.
Brave/BAT is the future. Built-in adblock browser with an optional decentralized user-advertiser-publisher advertising model. Literally solves all of these issues.
>you may have heard the myth >but we are employing the mechanics of that myth to your PC
jesus who writes the copy for this?
One of the very few working and useful crypro projects
one of my comfiest holds
they need to burn and burn in a pit of fire badly
It's probably because most of their audience is over 40 and female.
Ironic how you know a woman most certainly didn't implement this technology, not develop or maintain their website despite their whole thing being girl power.
Yeah, report it to the Internet police ya faggot. 555-BRAP
Use nanodefender to get around sites that block adblockers, it works great
Salon fucking owes ME for their garbage fucking articles. I'd sooner read Breitbart than their shitty rag.
Kek seriously this.
Jesus this is funny.
does it work for forbes? i hate having to disable my adblocker/ open an incognito for their mildly interesting articles
Too bad you can't switch on something that does the hash calculations wrong before sending them back
I just checked some forbes articles and they worked fine
PRL doesn't have a product yet dumb fuck
I've been holding it since december, is it gonna go up to 2-3 bucks again at some point in the near future?
Based deleted poster.
holy shit, if webmining is really all a company needs to quench a businesses ad-revenue thirst... "cryptos" are going to be unimaginably huge
That's so satisfying to look at.
BAT is criminally underrated and undervalued, but I'm weary of its growth potential in the longterm. For example, 5 years from now, would having BAT at $50 make any sense?
So how much do these inbrowser mining scripts make and would it be possible to run this on public computers?
people who are against capitalism need helicopter rides
Can you block scripts individually like uMatrix/noScript?
This is only a problem if you're not using uBlock, NoScript, or go to Salon for any reason. I can't get off the first page without getting my computer raped. I don't know how anyone can use the site and I'm convinced it's just a front for a shareholder ponzi scheme. Pic related. Part 1
