We are pretty conservative as far as ICOs go, based on our previous experiences, so we don’t often talk about Initial Coin Offerings, but we live to point out that the JSEcoin ICO is now live. It is a project that we have been following for almost a year now and we can say that we like the idea and what we have seen so far. Going for an ICO with an actual working platform and product that makes sense is the way we want to see things happen as this is the right way to convince your audience and not just go with empty promises. The price of a single JSEcoin is currently estimated to about $0.006 USD in the ICO at the moment and a the current pricing 1 ETH = 75000 JSE + 10% early bird bonus.

So if you still haven’t checked JSEcoin out, then you might want to give it a go. Even if you are not interested in the currently running ICO to purchase JSE coins, you can just self mine them or use the web miner on your blog or a web site, so that visitors will mine for you. Unlike some other web-based miners such as the ones for Cryptonight the JSEcoin miner is not as heavy and demanding to actually make the visitor’s computer laggy and unresponsive because of the mining. There is also an opt-in system in place, so that visitors are being informed about the mining and they need to confirm they agree to share their computational resources when visiting a website with the JSEcoin miner installed.

Back in September last year we have introduced to you the JSEcoin – Javascript Embeded Cryptocurrency for Webmasters, an interesting new project for web-based crypto currency mining targeted at webmasters for monetizing their traffic. It is a custom crypto currency project and not just another web-based CryptoNight miner like Coin Hive or GridCash. Since then a lot has happened and the project has continued its development and improvement, so if you have missed checking it out the last time, then you might want to give it a go now. Although it is originally intended fro webmasters to monetize their website traffic, the project also offer an option to self mine as well from within the browser, do note that both self mining and publisher mining have completely separate rewards.

While there is still no official exchange where the JSE coins are being traded, probably happening after the ICO, there are now merchant tools available for people to actually use JSEcoins as a means for payment for products or services online. Recently there have been some changes in the number of JSE tokens available and the total number to be issued with an increase of 200x of the number of tokens, the ones already held by users as well as the max cap. Mining rewards are also up of course, so you just get more coins, but the value should remain pretty much the same while JSEcoin is getting ready for an upcoming ICO where a maximum of 50% of the max total cap will be made available for sale. The ICO will be held later this year and we like projects that are running crowdsales of tokens when they already have a working service or product and not before that, so we are definitely going to continue watching this project as it develops.

It seems that quite a lot of websites have recently got into crypto mining Monero (XMR) using the Javascript miner provided by Coin Hive without warning their users that there will be such a thing when you visit them. That of course cannot remain undiscovered for long time due to the increased CPU load when visiting these websites and it really is not the best thing to do and not tell your visitors… not to mention that you won’t be earning that much. You can offer them to open a separate window with the miner as a means to support your website, product or service and then everything could be fine, but not telling them and hoping that they will not find and will not get unhappy is really not fine. In fact besides the web miner that particular service also offers other interesting and useful ways to monetize your traffic with mining, namely the Proof of Work Captcha and PoW Shortlinks that you might want to check out… this post however is not about the XMR web miner.

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.
