Cryptojacking Miners Create Major Worry
Image
Unscrupulous miners have found a new way to undermine the legitimacy of the crypto world by hacking into normal citizens around the world. Cryptojacking has become a serious problem with coins such as Monero using malware to mine cryptocurrency. Coinhive and Cryptoloot are two major contributors to this problem by allowing miners to hack into software to steal power and mine cryptocrurrency.
While this may go unnoticed right now for the most part, the hope is it will come under greater scrutiny once the crypto market is more recognized in the mainstream world. Keeping things both transparent...and legal...are the key components to maintaining long term investments (and returns) in crypto coins.
