So Salon (a news website) has started offering users with adblock the ability to “suppress ads” in exchange for allowing them to mine Monero with their CPU. My immediate reaction is that this might actually be a pretty good idea.

I could imagine a future where, provided there are tools so the user can ensure that it doesn’t overload their CPU and there are standards which are adhered to so as to ensure there’s no dodgy business going on, this could possibly replace the heavily tracking and advertisement based business model that the internet currently runs on.
