Google has Banned Cryptocurrency Mining Apps on Play Store


Google has updated its Play Store Developer Policies in order to ban some categories of apps such as cryptocurrency mining Apps and apps with disruptive ads.

Cryptocurrency Mining Apps are Prohibited by Google

Google told that cryptocurrency mining apps are now prohibited however the apps that “remotely manage the mining of cryptocurrency” are still allowed. Apple has also banned Cryptocurrency Mining Apps from its store and said that they will not accept any kind of cryptocurrency mining applications for submission.

“the only cryptocurrency mining apps allowed are those that mine outside of the device, like cloud-based mining.”

Cryptocurrency is a digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank. Clients calmly running these applications finding out about the digital money may not be completely mindful of what they are getting into. Apple may have just needed to confront devices harmed by mining, which is most likely why the organization chose to act so entirely on the issue.

Crypto mining on cell phones is a fairly unproductive action in any case as the preparing intensity of these devices isn’t sufficient to complete the fulfil the task. Your device will be under load continually to no reward so it’s not by any means justified, despite all the trouble over the long run.
