CYBER Safety leader NortonLifeLock has been allowing users to mine cryptocurrency for months as Bitcoin’s worth comes back up after China’s ban news.
Back in June, a Norton Crypto feature was created to allow consumers to “safely and easily mine cryptocurrency through its trusted Norton™ 360 platform.”
“Norton Crypto delivers a secure, reliable way for consumers to mine for Ethereum without opening themselves and their devices up to these pitfalls,” Norton said in a press release.
“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.”
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are now on the rise despite falling after China’s central bank announcing that all cryptocurrency trading is illegal in the country and mining the tokens is banned.
