World’s First Bitcoin Mining TV Launched by Canaan

The TV set can process 2.8 trillion hashes per second at 100W/T, compared to their most powerful mining rig processing 11 trillion hashes per second. This power (from A3210 16nm ASIC chips) seems pretty decent, considering that you can’t watch TV on a typical mining rig. – Emilio Janus, Bitcoinist.com https://ift.tt/2vybh0f

Streaming sites mine cryptocurrency while you watch free movies

AdGuard discovered two Openload domains secretly mining for Monero without users’ knowledge or consent. Openload, one of the most popular streaming sites, has an estimated 330 million visitors per month. Videos from Openload are often embedded on other sites and, in many cases, the mining script loads when videos are launched. AdGuard estimated that the monthly earnings reach $95,000. – Ms. Smith, CSO http://ift.tt/2Ce9ro0
