- Coinhive announces plans to stop mining in March and seize all operations by the end of this April.
- Cryptojacking campaigns will take a blow as they’ll have to change their exploitation platform.
Coinhive is about to shut down their services, according to a blog post on their official website. The date that the administrators of the cryptocurrency mining service will pull the plug was defined as March 8, 2019, so there’s only a week left for Monero miners to enjoy the service. User dashboards will be accessible and payout activities may still be carried out until April 30, 2019.
The main reason for this abrupt end was given as the following: “Some of you might have anticipated this, some of you will be surprised. The decision has been made. We will discontinue our service on March 8, 2019. It has been a blast working on this project over the past 18 months, but to be completely honest, it isn’t economically viable anymore.”
