Thanks for offering man that's awesome. I'd like to see this rolled out soon too. It's definitely on our radar.

Seems pretty decent; perhaps you could give Saidit gold for a certain ammount of mining? Like an exchange rate for a few dollars' worth of mining and the equivalent amount of Saidit gold if you had just purchased it?

You'll have to tinker around so that the optional mining doesn't use much CPU; if this takes off users will be fine with running a low CPU-usage miner while they browse. If the site takes off people will be spending a couple hours each day browsing as a habit, so the lower rate of mining per user shouldn't matter much.

Cool idea, if we're able to see which users ran the miner. Might take some custom code but gold sounds like a great free to us incentive.

I was imagining mining happening in a secondary tab rather than as you browse the site, but maybe you're onto something.

You'll have to make sure that the mining stays constant despite the number of tabs, though, so like if you have two tabs open that isn't doing double the mining and thus double the cpu; perhaps make mining only happen in the active tab, or do something with JS workers so that only one mining process runs regardless of how many tabs are open.

I think this'd be fine as long as users know it's happening and can easily turn it off. Or both could be an option. I like having it as a separate tab, that way it's super easy to control. But it might be cool to integrate it as a background task too.
