The crypto mining protection is most likely a subset of behavioural, network and browser-based heuristics/behavioural patterns. It's been released as an additional module to show users Bitdefender protects against these (marketing tactic). Nothing exciting unfortunately.

That's what I asked them also since AFAIK, Bitdefender already protects against Cryptomining through signatures and Advanced Threat Defense. But haven't received any response yet.
Thanks for asking the question.

This feature in the UI is probably only to manage cryptomining activities and allow it for users who mines crypto on their device on purpose.
That makes sense :)

That's what I was wondering, if it was more of an eye candy, promotional thing. We'll see, as we learn more :)

Crypto miners (unwanted) are malware, so when installing anti-malware protection, one automatically assumes miners will be detected and eliminated. Exceptions could be added under anti-malware as well. Bitdefender decided that it will look like innovation.
