When I visit https://coinhive.com/ , I see a "Start Mining" button at the center of their page. I know recently Monero changed its hashing algorithm to be CryptoNight v1 (variant 1). Does Coinhive use their new algorithm ? Their site gives no documentation about this. If they don't, then is it just a charade when you click the "Start Mining" button?

  • Cryptonight v1, not v7
