Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

LinuxCoin can be booted from flash memory, if that's what you're looking for.

If you're referring to Macromedia Flash, no, not that I'm aware of.

Flash itself is too much of a gpu hog for it to be as efficient as other miners (launch a youtube video while mining, watch your hashes drop by 10-20%)

Anyways to answer your question, there are none currently using flash

Meh, I'm old school, been on the interwebs since 1993. It'll always be Macromedia to me.  Grin

would probably be better off making a miner in webgl and hiding it in a widget on a page...?

You do know that there is already a JavaScript miner, right?  If (re?) written properly, it could send AJAX updates back to a webserver which could generate your Flash on the fly, effectively accomplishing exactly the same thing.

Wishful thinking - Macromedia Flash/Shockwave were much better products.

I was under the impression that GLSL was garbage (even worse than javascript) at mining...?

I've been working on this.  I'm very familiar with Actionscript 3, and ABC - Actionscript ByteCode, having written a decompiler & flash injector.
However I'm getting familiar with the bitcoin protocol and code right now, so no ETA for the moment.

Hopefully this is not too far off topic. After reading this post I was wondering if there were any web-based GPU miners and I came across something on kradminer which appears to be just that. Unfortunately firefox has been crashing my computer lately (because of mining activities?) so I'm running the hated IE and can't try it. Does anyone know if it runs at a reasonable speed?

Reasonable.

However this isn't something you could integrate seamlessly on a website to mine coins.

I've written a quick proof of concept in actionscript, and it turned out to be slower than javascript. Much slower, almost a factor of 10.
And I don't see how one could do calculations on the GPU with flash.

so how many hashes/sec can you get with the actionscript?
