Google Bans Crypto Mining Extensions for Chrome

Google has reportedly banned cryptocurrency mining browser extensions from the Chrome store as it takes a step further in its crackdown against crypto-currencies.

In March 2018, Google had announced that it will ban all advertisements promoting crypto-currencies and initial coin offerings (ICOs) from June. Subsequently, Google will start removing existing browser extensions that facilitate cryptocurrency mining from July. However, there’s no official word on blocking other blockchain-related extensions.

Google’s extensions platform product manager James Wagner said, “The vast majority of mining extensions submitted for review failed to comply with our single purpose policy or were malicious.”

Google is implementing strict policies against ‘bad ads’ to gain users’ trust and this latest move is seen as a relief for the wider internet community.
