salon mines crypto monero instead of advertising

Media outlet Salon is testing offering users an alternative to advertising: mining cryptocurrency through their computers. If you visit the site with an ad-blocker turned on, you might see a prompt to either disable the blocker or choose a “suppress ads” option, as reported today by Financial Times. According to the Financial Times, the latter choice will let Salon put your unused computing power toward mining the cryptocurrency Monero, using a JavaScript-based mining tool that's available from Coinhive.
