Totally passive way of earning some money on a PC?

Apart from autosurfers, such as ebesucher, which is really rubbish as it takes months just to get a few pennies, are there any totally passive sites and/or applications that work on the PC (not Android or Iphone)? I have an old PC sitting idle and I pay no electrics or Internet, and I need a way to monetise it totally passively without any interaction for at least 8-10 hours a day.

    You could probably do some cryptocurrency mining depending on how powerful your PC \ GPU is, although the person paying the electricity bill if not yourself might have something to say about that!
  • Thanks but no thanks, crypto is not my thing. Yes, the landlord is already p****d off with housemates who are abusing the network with some sort of mining. I was looking for something less invasive. Ebesucher would be ideal if there were more traffic. It just sits idle most of the time.

    Mining is really the only thing mate though it should use up much bandwidth. It's really all electricity its using.

    Mining is free apart from electricity cost.

    Lots of ways to mine for free and get a bonus if you get referred.

    Stormgain is my favourite, bonus for being referred, within a couple of days you will have enough crypto to actively trade.

    Some free mining things are spammy or infected with malware, so be careful.
