These browser based miners are terrible they are very inefficient at the moment so the pay outs are crazy low. I run a pretty active site and tried one out for a a few weeks in the end it brought about 1 cent worth of the cryptocoin.

Yeah, remember that both services make money from a small commission; if that was the case wouldn't they be out of business? However both companies are doing fairly well.

I just checked my coinhive account and I lowed balled it quite a lot I actually ended up with about 0.005XMR which is worth about 1 USD but thats still a fair bit less from what I would expect to earn from ads. For the 65%, thats fair enough, but at the end of the day its still a CPU miner which are notoriously bad at the best of times.
I mean do what you want to pay for the site but I just feel that generally they're not worth using because of the low payout plus the negative stigma that they developed.

Totally fair. Thanks for the feedback.
