Miners for your web

In regard to our last posts regarding docker images for mining Monero and Webchain, some people have asked us how to integrate these in their websites, so they can monetize them without integrate annoying advertising.

We have been integrating CoinIMP and Crypto-Loot in some of our web services, and we can say both providers work with Monero, but CoinIMP also brings as alternative Webchain, and Crypto-Loot bets for uPlexa as second altcoin.

You can try their miners directly in the user dashboard once you have registered an account, so you will get aware how they work. Besides of that, they provide HTML code snippet you can integrate in your website for their miners, usually your users will be notified since their computers will be used for mining in an attempt to avoid any Ad-Blockers installed in the web browser of your users. If you are looking for an example, basically that is the modality we are using in our Data Convert Tooling web site.

If you don’t want to make the miner to run during the visits of your users, you can also integrate their captcha as replacement of the typical Google reCAPTCHA, which will require some mining time from the computer of your user, but it requires a little bit more of backend development knowledge. You can find an example about how this is used in our URL shortener or shortlink web service. Crypto-loot is also providing a shortlink service which will make the web browser of your visitor to mine a little bit before going to your website. If you want to see an example, just click on this link to go to uPlexa website.

In case of your web site provides a kind of credit mechanism for visitors, you may want to integrate CoinIMP. You can use their API to create users, and track how much they have contributed in mining, so you can build your credit system on top of it. Their credit can be also spent using their API. If you are looking for an example about how it can be done, you may take a look at our Artificial Neuronal Network web service.

Finally, don’t forget to get a wallet or use an online wallet like freewallet.org to manage your bitcoins and altcoins.
