Gath3r is a next-generation browser cryptocurrency miner developed to help websites and apps stop depending on privacy-invading advertising revenue by offering an alternative form of monetization.
For publishers seeing less-than-ideal revenue, shorter visits, and higher dropout rates as users reject and/or block digital ads and trackers — Gath3r is the perfect solution — allowing publishers and app developers to replace ads entirely, or supplement existing revenue streams.
Browser crypto-mining with Gath3r overcomes the costly and energy intensive conventional mining process by decentralizing it with the excess computer power of everyday website and app visitors.
Once the Gath3r code is installed on a website, or app, it allows owners to earn commissions based on their users passively mining cryptocurrency with a portion of their excess GPU and CPU computational power. This process only happens during the time the user is visiting/using the website or app.. Since each user must opt-in to participate, complete transparency is ensured.
Given there are over 2.5 billion live websites, which is 2,500,000,000, the potential market for the innovative Gath3r mining technology is huge.
A major point of differentiation for Gath3r, is the transparency of the opt-in process. Visitors are made aware of the system when they access the website or app, through a pop-up similar to the ones users see for cookies. To participate in mining, they must opt-in. The Gath3r software ensures that the user’s device will not be overburdened or noticeably slowed down.
Gath3r’s Loyalty Program allows website/app owners to give back to their visitors through rewards in the form of Gath3r tokens. This, alongside the Paywall Program and future plans for a proof of stake network, makes Gath3r the most viable and sustainable browser mining solution.
The Gath3r miner can switch proof of work algorithms based on block and price profitability, along with available hash power per website and pay out in Gath3r tokens (GTH), BTC or, where supported, in local currency.
The software platform is robust and can handle large loads of websites and/or applications and their subsequent users.
Current mining processes are increasingly centralized, due to the enormous computational power required to conduct the usual successful mining, a concentration that threatens the core value of blockchains.
Web browser crypto mining decentralizes the mining process. A Win-Win
Decentralized mining with web browsers offers a safe and transparent revenue stream for publishers, a safe and private way for users to reward their favorite apps and publishers, and a way for publishers to share revenue with their most valuable users.
It offers what the creators of Gath3r describe as a win-win situation for the website and app owners, as well as for their users: owners can optimize the way they monetize their sites and apps, while their users can enjoy a potentially ad-free user experience and participate in financial rewards for contributing to the mining process.
The Early Adopters Program is open right now for anyone to try for free, also waving all commissions for the first quarter.
