Hey Ninjas, I know the mood is not too nice whenever there’s a BTC dump. Don’t worry. In no time you start smiling again. A very good advice from me is to HODL and not sell whenever there’s a BTC Dump. Don’t mind Felicia when she said I should sell my crypto and give her my money, I pushed her and told her to go to hell. There will definitely be a PUMP in a few days. I repeat, don’t Sell, HODL.
This week, Altcoin Ninjas posted an article on how more than twenty people were arrested for cryptojacking in China. In order to keep our ninjas abreast, we found out that a major web browser, Opera has introduced anti-Bitcoin mining tool that prevents hackers from running unscrupulous scripts on the PCs of unsuspecting users. When installed, this will eradicate any form of shady cryptocurrency mining scripts that overuse your device’s computing ability without your consent.
You want to learn how it works after you have installed it on your PC or smartphone?
After installation, the first thing you need to do is to enable Opera’s ad blocker. You can also find and change NoCoin in Settings > Basic > Block ads, under the Recommended lists of ad filters. If you like ads but still want to be protected from Bitcoin-mining, you can simply uncheck EasyList and leave the NoCoin box checked. And that’s it. You are protected.
You can also go to https://cryptojackingtest.com/ - this is a site which tells you if your device has been compromised by cryptojacking, only if you are using the opera browser.
Countering cryptojaking is not only the innovation by Opera in the Crypto World. The web browser company has also become the first major Opera browser to include a built-in native crypto wallet.
We are foreseeing other web browsers to follow suit, along with interesting developments coming soon concerning legitimizing of "cryptojacking" into something that could benefit both the user of a software and the developer. Indeed, Cryptocurrency is the future.
See you around Ninjas.
