    Cryptojacking had potential, I believe. In some ways it is a good alternative to advertising – doesn’t track you, gives money to the creator, not distracting and such – but I can see why it bothers people. I think the main problem was the lack of consent (which is a problem in ads already, I never consented to receiving them), and the widespread adoption by hackers looking for a quick buck. I definitely could see a world where it went the other way, however, and became something people advocated for instead of becoming demonized.
