NortonLifeLock Has Launched a Service for Safe Mining of Ethereum

Information security company NortonLifeLock has launched Norton Crypto, which claims to help their users mine Ethereum safely.

Starting Thursday, a selected 360 users will receive invitations to join the program, and the remaining 13 million users will be able to mine cryptocurrency through Norton Crypto in the coming months. The development team assured that the service allows users to mine without requiring them to disable antivirus software.

The company also said that in the future they are going to add the possibility to mine other prominent crypto to the program. With such, NortonLifeLock aims to take mining to a new level, explaining that for many years, people had to take risks in search of coins, disabling the security system and allowing undisclosed code on their machines, which of course bears many risks.
