Harvest - Distributed Browser Blockchain (Monero)

  • It's possible to mine Monero in the Browser, relatively efficiently, using ASM.js and/or WebAssembly. The performance of Mining in the browser doesn't match native C++ currently. In the future, Browser Virtual Machines will match or come close to native compiled byte-code.

    A quick history. Early in 2017 the WebAssembly specification was adopted by all the major browsers. Great news for cryptography. Browser Applications can skip past Javascript, which was built for the DOM , and go straight for the goooood stuff. Low-level byte code.

    Fast forward to present day and smart people have realized "ohhh" we can build CPU Miners in the browser now.
