I recently encountered this message on a website:
"By continuing you agree to share resources. Your browsing speed will not be affected."
When I get 'learn more', it redirected to me an obscure digital currency webpage (I forgot the name). It was something like Bitcoin. What happens when I hit 'continue'?
What exactly does 'share resources' mean? I know that Bitcoins need huge computing power to mine a coin, but the webpage I was redirected did not mention bitcoin. If it's something similar to bitcoin mining, does the webpage use my resources when I'm not on the webpage?
