NEW DELHI: Crypto mining has gained immense popularity lately. Now Norton has introduced a new feature that will allow users to mine Ethereum cryptocurrency. Norton has launched a new feature called Norton Crypto which is designed to enable consumers to safely and easily mine cryptocurrency through its trusted Norton 360 platform.
The company revealed that select Norton 360 customers in Norton’s early adopter program will be invited to mine for Ethereum.
In an official post, the company said, “Norton Crypto delivers a secure, reliable way for consumers to mine for Ethereum without opening themselves and their devices up to these pitfalls. Once cryptocurrency has been earned, customers can track and transfer earnings into their Norton Crypto Wallet, which is stored in the cloud so it cannot be lost due to hard drive failure.”
The company also said that this new tool is designed to keep the customers safe. Now users will not have to disable their security in order to run digital coin mining software. This will also prevent the running of unwanted codes on a user’s system.
Gagan Singh, chief product officer at NortonLifeLock said, “We are proud to be the first consumer Cyber Safety company to offer coin miners the ability to safely and easily turn the idle time on their PCs into an opportunity to earn digital currency.”
Norton Crypto is expected to become available to all Norton 360 customers in the coming weeks. However, the company has not yet revealed the charges it will take for offering the tool to customers. Also, the Norton Crypto tool will be available for users who have enrolled in the early adopter programme. Presently, users will only be able to mine Ethereum using the feature.
