Chinese University Against Norton's Ethereum Mining Function

Xiamen University released an announcement reminding students and staff that cryptocurrency mining "runs counter to the nation’s cryptographic policy". But Norton's customer service staff told Forkast.News that there is no mining feature on the Chinese version of its software.

In September last year, China outlawed all crypto transactions and cryptocurrency mining. Norton faced backlash in June last year for bundling crypto mining features into its software and multiple backlashes recently about how the software would somehow touch mining profit fees and the difficulties users encountered uninstalling it.
