Want to donate to TRS while doing literally nothing? You can help us out by volunteering some of your CPU time to mine Monero cryptocurrency. It's a good way to give us a donation without having to actually do anything, though it may result in a slight increase to your electric bill. Mine some coins while you listen to a show!
Don't worry, this isn't malware or a virus or anything like that. It doesn't install anything on your computer and it absolutely will not start without you actively clicking on the widget. We could be shady like some of the Pajeets that write these plugins and just go ahead start the miner silently and run it in the background, so you would be mining coins for us whether you wanted to or not, but that's unethical and probably illegal and would possibly get us kicked off the internet. We simply don't operate like that at TRS, where user trust is our top priority.
To start mining, go to our miner here and simply click "start mining" on the widget. If you are running an ad blocker, you may have to disable it for that page. Adjust the number of threads and the speed to what you would like. If you don't know what these numbers mean, higher numbers mean the widget will be using more of your CPU power. If your computer or phone start getting hot, then turn the miner off or close the browser window. You can't run the miner in more than one window on the same device, and that would be pointless anyway. If you want to mine more, simply give it more threads and speed.
How much money is this actually earning us? Well, to put things in perspective, at current market rates it probably takes about 300 million hashes to mine $10 worth of Monero.
