No Coin stopping cryptocurrency


#1

This is my first try to request an extension, please be kind.

I had been reading about cryptocurrency and how it can be mined from web browsers to force using all your processor resources, and as what I had read actually create higher electric bills in the process. This is the one of the articles I have read: https://www.howtogeek.com/334018/how-to-block-cryptocurrency-miners-in-your-web-browser/

Would love to see an extension that is similar to the one described in the article for the browser.

Hi @jdyates,

Brave already block coin/crypto mining scripts for a few months now and it’s ON by default (ads and trackers blocking enabled). :slight_smile:

Please see:

Best,

Greetings @eljuno,

Thank you for the heads up on this, for everything I had read to date had not mentioned this part of the browser. I had not seen the twitter reference for I had started working with the browser earlier this month (November). In my prior experience I had to rely on an extension/add on to do various functions, especially when it came to blocking various java scripts.

Cheers!
