What Is Monero Mining?
First, lets start with Monero. Monero is an XMR based anonymous online Crypto Currency. Sort of like Bitcoin or Ethereum, but in a different form factor. Monero is based on people mining via their browsers. This allows website owners to have controlled Monero Miners built right into their websites, instead of Ads! Can't donate, also don't want terrible page filling ads? No problem using Monero. Simple select a speed, click the yellow play button and you're done! Let it go do its thing! That'll fund the site very easily.
Above, you'll see the price of 1 Monero coin converted to USD, and the miner next to it.
