A growing crypto world means people want it more. The need has seen many people question the possibility of mining using mobile. This article looks into the potential and how to go about it.  

The Possibility of Mining Bitcoin with Mobile 

The popularity of the crypto has been rising in recent times. At the same time, people are now accessing more with their phones. Almost everything one would do from a CPU is now available from the phone. It is only natural you would consider mining from the phone.

Crypto mining from the phone is possible. The only concern is the lower output compared to the other devices. Crypto mining has been advancing over the years. At first, mining from a CPU was profitable enough. After some time came the GPU. The miners started looking for quicker speeds and a better outcome. Afterwards came the special mining tools called ASIC.  

Currently, companies are producing special mining machines. These machines come with the needed fast output. Meaning, while you might mine Bitcoin from your phone, it is not the most profitable option. Bitcoin mining works such that machines compete to solve mathematical puzzles. The one solving the puzzle first gets the rewards.

It is unlikely that you can be the first to solve the puzzle from the phone. It is the literal example of coming to a gunfight with a knife. You will only drain power and reduce phone performance without significant outcomes. 

No one will stop you from using the phone for crypto mining. The prospect for the same has been growing. The only concern is if you will find it worthy. 

Mobile Devices to Use for Crypto Mining 

Mining Bitcoin using mobile is unprofitable. The only option with the profit prospect is in the altcoins. The altcoins are not as competitive as Bitcoin mining. There are also several altcoins to try. Some are not as power centric as Bitcoin mining. 

Android is the best operating system for mobile mining. Apple's iOS has banned mining from its operating system. The platform advises against inefficient power apps that might damage devices. The apps should not be battery draining, produce too much heat or strain the device functionality. All these happen when you run crypto-mining apps on the phone. 

While Android supports the apps, there is none in the official Appstore. Google Play store banned the mining apps due to their adverse effects on phones. 

Several crypto-centric mobile phones have been coming up of late. One of the most popular is the HTC Exodus smartphones. The phones come with crypto-friendly features to mine Monero. It comes with a built-in crypto wallet. It also has a virtual vault for storage and critical safety features. 

Minephone WX is also developing an Ethereum mining phone. The phone uses Bitwings to mine. It comes with a high purchase price of around $3000. It projects the user will recover this after a few years. It plans to mine over $10,440 of Ethereum within three years.

The other likely game-changer in mobile mining is the Electroneum. The Electroneum M1 comes with cloud mining features. Still, it is more of a token giveaway than mining.

Top Crypto Mining Apps 

The allure of mining has seen several crypto mobile mining apps come up. These apps make it more convenient to mine using phones. They automatically download pending transactions from blockchain. They then work on it using the phone's processor and upload the complete data. 

Some of the top mobile crypto-mining apps are;

MineGate Mobile Miner 

It is one of the most popular mobile mining apps, following the success of the desktop version. It supports mining of several coins; Monero, Bitcoin, Bytecoin, Infinium-8, and several others. 

It comes with a built-in wallet for storing the mined cryptos. It also provides for miner chatrooms and price-checking tool. It also supports Changelly.com withdrawals for convenience. 

Crypto Miner 

Crypto Miner is all about simplicity in mobile mining. It supports several cryptos and algorithms on the platform. The only concern is that not all the algorithms are free in the basic version. 

The app is optimized for ARM's advanced single instruction multiple data (SIMD) architecture extension. You get to choose the processor threads routine. You also set processing priority and background mining.

NeoNeon Miner 

This mining app requires you to join a mining pool. It supports several cryptocurrencies and comes with a detailed mining log. It also comes with high-end configurations for better mining output. 

Mobile Cloud Mining 

Just like regular mining, mobile mining also comes with cloud mining. Cloud mining is convenient for anyone irrespective of the technical abilities. There are several mobile cloud mining services to consider. 

Phoneum is one of the most reliable mobile cloud mining platforms. The mobile-only crypto service allows the user access to simplified crypto mining. It started as a mobile app. It then became a cloud mining solution. It doesn't have to run on the phone's background at all times to mine.

The Phoneum cloud mining is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store

Crypto Mining Pools 

Instead of having to mine by yourself, you can join others in a mining pool. The mining pool is where miners combine resources for better output. Everyone contributes processing power to create a large mining zone. 

The more the power, the higher chances of getting better rewards. The miners then get the rewards depending on their processing power share. 

Some of the mobile apps require one to join a crypto mining pool. There are not several mining pools for mobile in the market. Still, there are a few that are quite reputable. Some of these are Slush pool, Antpool, and BTC.com.

Bottom Line 

Mobile mining is such a convenient way to gain cryptos. However, it is not so profitable for Bitcoin mining. The best way to mine from mobile is to concentrate on altcoins. You also require ideal mining apps and compatible devices.
