Mining Crypto from Home Without Expensive Equipment
Norton Crypto, a new feature of Norton 360, will be offered beginning today for mining Ethereum in Norton’s early adopter program. The announcement made yesterday states that the new crypto mining feature works in tandem with Norton’s popular internet security suite and will provide Norton 360 customers to mine online from home.
The press release stated that the company wants to empower their customers to be able to mine cryptocurrency “with a brand they trust.” It explains that Norton Crypto delivers a secure, reliable way for consumers to mine Ethereum without opening themselves and their devices up to dangers. The company cites how disabling security software is one of the pitfalls of mining on a personal computer and that digital wallets are typically stored on owners' hard drives and can be lost should the hard drive fail.

Secure Ethereum mining
The rebranded firm, NortonLifeLock, is expanding its cyber safety platform to protect consumer’s expanding digital lives. Vincent Pilette, CEO of NortonLifeLock, elaborated on the growing role that cryptocurrencies are playing, “Norton Crypto is yet another innovative example of how we are expanding our Cyber Safety platform to protect our customers’ ever-evolving digital lives.”
Gagan Singh, Chief Product Officer, said “We are proud to be the first consumer Cyber Safety company to offer coinminers the ability to safely and easily turn the idle time on their PCs into an opportunity to earn digital currency,” said Gagan Singh, chief product officer at NortonLifeLock. “With Norton Crypto, our customers can mine for cryptocurrency with just a few clicks, avoiding many barriers to entry in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.”
Millions will be able to mine cryptocurrencies very soon without installing any extra programs beyond the Norton antivirus software. The software will allow crypto mining for Ethereum and is designed to provide the appropriate level of protection for mining in your spare time. The tools may limit the hobbyist’s success with advanced crypto like Ethereum, but the company expects to add other less advanced possibilities over time.
