Salon Using Some Reader’s Spare Computing Power to Mine Cryptocurrency

Salon is now using their reader’s spare computing power to mine cryptocurrency.

Salon, a popular progressive website, has introduced a new feature that harnesses the spare computing power of its reader’s devices to mine cryptocurrency.

When visiting Salon’s website, readers are now presented with the option to either turn off their ad blocker or to “suppress ads,” which means handing over your spare computing power to mine Monero.

An explainer on the Salon website describes how the mining process helps the publication earn revenue in the absence of advertisements.
