Hey girl, what's that behind your Windows task bar? Looks like a hidden crypto-miner...


Re: Business model?

The better model I think (and it's one which is heavily promoted by CoinHive) is mining as a catcha replacement. Go to sign up for a free site and instead of saying "click to prove you are not a robot" it says "click here to mine a tiny amount for us, if you're a robot that's fine, we're still getting paid."
