! Mining

Code: Select all

||api.inwemo.com^$third-party
Is being blocked, i don't understand why as this is opt in only you are explicitly asked if you would like to use some cpu usage to pay for the server costs.

would it be possible this can be unblocked? or moved to a seperate list of some sort? i don't see this being suitable for EasyPrivacy

this list is selected by default in ublock origin and therefore blocks "opt in" mining

Using cpu cycles and sending to a third-party has privacy implications.

I agree completely in regards to coinhive etc but inwemo is purely opt in they designed it around that. There's no reason for it to be blocked as it doesn't run unless they want it to.

i mean obviously the "opt in message" runs regardless but thats all.

surely opt-in things aren't a privacy concern.

I'd like to add my$0.02 to this as well. Authedmine is/was an elegant solution to the concerns on both sides. A simple disclosure informing the end user what was about to take place which required a user opt-in to proceed. Complete transparency and opt-in! Not sure what more you could possibly ask for. Block all the scripts for online banking and see what kind of support you get. There are some things that are going to have to be shared for functionality of certain web apps. If the user opts-IN after being informed, I'd consider that a handshake agreement. I support the Coinhive team for their efforts. If they choose to obfuscate the script and have me jump through hoops to implement it, I will gladly do so and show my own disclosure statement to the users...and if that's the case, the blockers will go in the bin.
