Blocker the crypto-currency miner(s)
Built-in Blocker the crypto-currency miner(s)
As other browsers are introducing this "Feature" (Opera) I was wondering if Vivaldi is considering a similar blocker.
I know we can do it with add-ons but where security/privacy are the issues I "Trust" the developers.

uBlock Origin already does this.
It's outside Vivaldi scope actively blocking spam, annoyances and malware.

I wouldn't say it is outside the scope of vivaldi, built-in blocker lists might be a candidate for a feature request (if i'm not mistaken classic opera had something to this effect), but it's definitely not a priority considering the wealth of other tools that can do it that already exist.
I use uBlockOrigin and adding this list https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hoshsadiq/adblock-nocoin-list/master/nocoin.txt
Yes, I use this now... but who knows how long it will be around?
That's why I'd prefer blocking capabilities within the browser.
