    What tool did you use to capture this information?

    It looks like a packet from a DNS response to the following DNS query:

    dig debug.opendns.com. txt
    - or -
    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.

    To answer your question: 
    The domain debug.opendns.com is being used for diagnostic purposes in case something OpenDNS related doesn't work for a user.

    "attempting to determine which sites are using coinhive"

    Isn't this Coinhive JavaScript based?  Then your approach to research this through DNS is wrong.  You must analyze your web traffic, not your DNS traffic.
