The script
https://www.bitchute.com/static/js/third-party/simple-ui.min.js
on the new page https://www.bitchute.com/help-us-grow/
is regarded as trojan by Kaspersky:

HEUR:Trojan.Script.Miner.gen;
Trojanisches Programm;
07/05/2018 13:27:04

and then blocked.

Weird, I thought the whole purpose of moving the AuthedMine widget to another domain was to avoid getting flagged for this kind of shit

It was, the script is no longer on the help-us-grow page and you should no longer get a warning.

Corporations have taken a hard stance on browser based crypto mining and even if it is done in a responsible way they prefer to label it as malicious.

There's a lot of pushback happening globally against the idea. Here in Japan, the cops recently rounded up over a dozen website operators for running Coinhive. The police decided it classifies as a "virus" under the law, even though there's been no clear ruling on the legality of it yet. Seems pretty obvious they jumped the gun because they want to stamp it out quickly.
