Coinhive a shot for monetizing Bauer-Power. The sucky thing about it is that using their Simple Miner UI, it requires users to actively press the start button to start the mining process. I'm going on on a limb here to say that 99.999999% of the people visiting your website won't click the start button at all. People want their free content, and they don't want to throw anyone a bone. That's why AdBlock is so popular...
According to Coinhive's documentation, they did this because AdBlockers were blocking their miners.
From their page:
Shortly after the launch of Coinhive, several Adblockers have begun blocking our miner. This is unfortunate because we intended Coinhive to be an alternative to ads, precisely for users with adblockers.
We realize this opt-in may be clunky and not fit all too well with your use case, but we strongly believe that being honest with the user will ultimately be beneficial - for users and website owners alike.
So what is one to do as an alternative? Well, here is something that works for me. You can load a Coinhive shortlink in a hidden iFrame instead! What is a shortlink? I'm glad you asked!
From their page:
If you have a URL you'd like to forward your users to, you can create a cnhv.co shortlink to it. The user has to solve a number of hashes (adjustable by you) and is automatically forwarded to the target URL afterwards.Basically it is like TinyURL or IS.GD but before the user is redirected, they have to do some mining for you. You can set the hash limit from 256 hashes up!
The code example below loads in an invisible iFrame, and once the visitor's CPU computes 512 hashes, it gets redirected to a Wikipedia post about Monero. Users never see it though. In my example link I set the hash limit relatively low so it will mine quick, and then stop quick... So as not to be a complete asshole!
The example code is:
