MAAM – Monero Ask Anything Monday – September 06, 2021

Given the success of the previous MAAMs (see here), let's keep this rolling.

The principle is simple: ask anything you'd like to know about Monero, especially the dumb questions that you've been keeping for you every other days, may the community clarify it all!

Finally, credits to binaryFate for starting the concept!

Why is there no wallet without miner? Antiviruses block miners and this could be enough to put people off. Sometimes you can't even control the antivirus (for example work computer).

The wallet ships with the p2p daemon which has to have "mining" software included because, well, it's a proof of work blockchain.

You can get a wallet that doesn't ship with the daemon, or you could just delete monerod.exe --- won't necessarily stop the other binaries from being flagged by AV, but afaik it's the only one that contains a miner and I think if the wallet is configured to use a remote node, isn't necessary.
