    Yesterday I had a total what the heck moment when I received a message from forum user Angantyr informing me that Razer partnered with a company called "GammaNow", their plans are this, they want you to use their mining software. You mine for it, and Razer keeps the coins.

    You, however, would receive points in a loyalty program for some discounts. So let me reiterate, Razer wants you to dig crypto coins in exchange for a discount at the company. Users would use their computers to create digital coins, although they are not allowed to keep them themselves. The project is called Softminer. Users can download a program that uses the hardware of their system to extract cryptocurrency. These are coins that resemble Ethereum coins...

    Don't thinks so, as the hosts (not hosts_browsers) list was updated several times, and it is on the same site. Maybe is just like others often point out, that mining protection is mostly part of the browsers this days.
