Since summer 2017 — mostly due to significant increase of the price of Bitcoin — browser-based mining services have increased their popularity. By providing easy to use JavaScript libraries they allow website owners to increase their revenues by hijacking visitors’ browsers for cryptocurrency mining. The browser-based mining service will then award part of the profit to the site owners. As cryptocurrency
mining is extremely resource-consuming, it may impact the performance of the visitors’ browser and operating system, as well as waste electricity on behalf of the owners of the infrastructure.
