The Norton antivirus company has said that the ethereum mining feature will be added for Norton 360 customers in the “coming weeks”.  The mining for getting cryptocurrency such as Ethereum works by using the computer hardware to do complicated calculations. Solving such complex problems is awarded with a reward such as cryptocurrency. 

Norton hasn’t given a clear explanation about the business model for Norton Crypto yet. In a press release, Norton said that coin miners had to disable their antivirus to run coin mining in the past.  Norton believes that now it will be safe and easy to get into mining.

It has to be noted that antivirus such as Norton occasionally identifies mining programs as unsafe, and disables it automatically. The users disable the antivirus package in order to run the mining program. 

The mining process for ethereum is complicated. The users need to rely on luck and powerful hardware to get the cryptocurrency. There are speculations that Norton might use a pool mining where many miners will collectively share their hardware and divide the reward based on the machine’s contribution. Norton would possibly take a 1 percentage cut off from the earnings. 

Norton product executive Gagan Singh said that the Norton subscribers can mine for cryptocurrency with a few clicks. The mining is already available to its early adopter programme members. The company says it will be widely available in the next few weeks.
