Marine Corps Bans Service Members From Mining Bitcoin on Military Devices

According to a Tuesday U.S. Marine Corps memo, service members are now banned from mining cryptocurrency on any government-issued phones or devices for security reasons

It’s an unusual announcement, but, as CoinDesk reports, the military seems worried that crypto mining apps — along with dating and gambling — could compromise its cybersecurity.

The crypto ban isn’t the first time that the military had to step in and restrict what soldiers could do with their phones. In 2018, the Pentagon had to tell soldiers to stop sharing their location with fitness tracker apps after they inadvertently revealed both the locations and layouts of military bases around the world — as well as off-limits areas like Area 51.
