After reading the article on CoinDesk two days ago regarding HoneyMiner, I tried it out. For those who haven't heard of it, it is a program for PC's (iOS coming later) that will autodetect your hardware and mine the coin most advantageous to your hardware (in most cases, Monero). It automatically converts that coin into satoshis. The interface is pretty straight forward with plenty of options--you can enable/disable GPU and CPU's, task it to only run when the computer is idle, etc. On my desktop, it uses 3 out of the 4 cores and scales down if I do anything intensive. Its pretty smooth.
What I like the most about it, and programs like it, is that they are going to make it so easy and attractive for noobs to get into crypto--specifically BTC. No tweeking config files or digging around github. I can only mine about 12 cents worth of Satoshis per day on my several year old gaming rig (with GPU disabled, around 30 cents with GPU enabled), but I would guess a newer computer could get a quarter to fifty cents worth, a new gaming rig, probably more. Young people, tweens, teens and strapped college students are going to run this thing constantly. And perhaps even more importantly, it will train people to think in Satoshis. Anyhow, the fees kinda suck and I had to disable GPU on my laptop or it would crash (probably because integrated chips are a pain in the ass). But it seems like they are actively developing it and adding features. Best of luck to them! This is what adoption looks like for the average Joe who wants to dip his toe into BTC.
Anyhow, I see this sort of plug-n-play program to be bullish for BTC in general. If you want to make me rich, a few satoshis at a time, I shamelessly offer this referral link. https://honeyminer.com/referred/58yu5 Maybe I will earn enough for half a gallon of Regular for my future Lambo (read: Kia).
Keep HODL'ing, compadres.
