The Norton 360 antivirus will soon allow its users to harness the power of their graphics cards to mine Ethereum with a new feature called “Norton Crypto,” according to a June 2 announcement.

Starting from June 3, some early adopters will be invited to test out the new feature.

Norton claims that its new feature makes it possible to safely mine Ethereum without subjecting one’s computer to a slew of risks associated with unvetted code.

All mined Ether will be deposited to a cloud-based Norton wallet.
