Hey there,

There's nothing in our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) that says you cannot run Ethereum or any mining tools. However, typical mining can lead to excessive CPU, which is against our AUP. We recommend either put rate-limiting in place for the CPU to around 75% or use a dedicated CPU instance. Dedicated CPU instances you can use all the CPU without worrying about generating a Terms of Service complaint about excessive CPU, it's yours to use as you want. For your quick reference, I added a guide explaining the plans available.
