Litecoin Miner for Websites

Note: Usage of this miner is currently deprecated. It is no longer supported. If you are looking for ways to monetize your website, there are far better and more profitable solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of hash rate can this miner attain?
The miner is written in Java, and its speed is almost comparable to that of compiled miners. On most computers the current version can get up to about one third of the speed of pooler's optimized CPU miner, which is written in C and assembly.

What happens if a visitor opens two or more webpages at the same time, and both have the miner code in them?
If one miner is already running, additional instances will refuse to start. This way, system performance will not be hurt.

Quick Start Guide

Add the following code to the body of your webpage, replacing user.name:password with the username and password of one of your pool workers.

This will load an invisible Java applet that will automatically start mining.

Optional Parameters

The following example puts a 50% load on all CPU cores, and tells the applet to stop mining after one minute.

Please do not abuse the features above. Nobody likes a slow website!
