Salon to ad-block users: Let us use your computers to mine cryptocurrency (really)
- Salon Media Group has become the first publisher to add cryptocurrency to its sources of revenue
- Salon's move will only apply to a small share of its total audience but the publisher said it sees cryptocurrency mining as a serious source of revenue in the long term
Users that try Salon's mining beta are asked a second time to provide consent before their computer's processors are used.
