    Any chance to add coinhive’s captcha as an option? It would be useful to get paid a bit in cryptocurrency for the captcha.
    Here is the api details etc: https://coinhive.com/documentation/captcha

    It’s better than a captcha in some ways, it doesn’t really matter if its a bot and the token verification makes it difficult to bypass. they are using authedmine.com which cannot run in the background or without being activated by the user.

    Hello,

    Yes I already intend to add coinhive to the faucet, I simply haven’t found the time to do this yet. I also think it is a good fit for the project.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    Hi, reusing this thread in the interests of good environmental practice!

    The firewall is throwing up a notice about coinhive:
    Filename: wp-content/plugins/bitcoin-faucet/templates/default/index.php
    File Type: Not a core, theme, or plugin file from wordpress.org.

    Details: This file appears to be installed or modified by a hacker to perform malicious activity. If you know about this file you can choose to ignore it to exclude it from future scans. The text we found in this file that matches a known malicious file is: ://coinhive.com/lib. The infection type is: Browser-based crypto currency miner..

    I have not installed coinhive on this site, are you experimenting with it? If not the server may have been hacked. No worries, it’s not active right now so only stupid bots are present. Here is the relevant code:

    <!– Lets try to provoke  AdBlock… –>
    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”https://coinhive.com/lib/coinhive.min.js”></script&gt;
    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”<?php echo($trof_main_url); ?>libs/advertisement.js”></script>

    <!– …and check if AdBlock fired –>
    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”<?php echo($trof_main_url); ?>libs/check.js”></script>

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”<?php echo($trof_main_url); ?>libs/mmc.js”></script>

    <?php
    } //if($data[‘block_adblock’] == ‘on’)
    ?>

    It seems to be a thing to provoke adblock. Is this correct or is someone trying to make it look innocuous? I guess the former but just checking.

    Cheers

    PS Adblock to bitcoin was a nice idea but appears to be abandoned and needs more work, but it’s open source (GitHub), might be a nice addition when you have time. https://wordpress.org/plugins/block-ads-to-bitcoin/

    Hello,

    I previously indicated that I would like to implement something with CoinHive but I have not yet found the time to do so.

    The plugin you indicate has a slug of bitcoin-faucet and is not developed by me. You need to contact the developer(s) of that plugin for any issues you have.

    The wallets-faucet plugin that I have developed does have some basic adblock detection capabilities, and it uses mockingbird for this: https://github.com/retargetly/mockingbird

    kind regards

    ok sorry for the confusion, I have too many sites and not enough memory.

    Cheers
