This post is about JSEcoin that we have talked about last month as well. It is a project similar in a ways to Coin Hive, but it more than just a web-based miner for an existing crypto coin. It is a whole new crypto currency that can be mined with a dedicated web miner and that you can also embed in your website for your visitors to help support you by mining the coin. Soon after we covered the project they have shut down the function for users to try self mining as there was an influx of new users registering and trying it out, not really a surprise here. Now, a bit later the backend has been upgraded to meet the increased user demand and self mining is back and running just fine and seems more stable, though hashrate seems a bit low now.
The miner for JSEcoin does come with a built-in feature to let the users visiting a website that it is there and that some of their CPU resources will be used for mining. Unlike the XMR web miner that is pretty demanding and the hasrate is really not that high compared to a dedicated miner running on the same hardware here things are designed around the goal of using a web browser to mine the coin. Of course JSE coin is a new young project and still needs some time to develop and start bringing actual returns should you decide to sell any mined coins, it is riskier at this point, but can also be more rewarding in the long term. So if you are interested in the concept of web mining, then you should most definitely check this project out and give it a try as it is looking really promising even at this early stage of development.
