First CryptoNote Mobile Miner
by Janika Kouki
Today we present you MinerGate mobile miner for Android. Make your smartphone a portable mining rig!
The whole thing wasn’t done by our developers, but by your fellow miner forstore who sent us the software to participate in the API contest. We were so impessed and inspired by his work that we decided to ask our designers for help and add the GUI realisation of the mobile miner.
The result is now for you to judge, download the file here and test the app for yourselves.
Here are the options available:
- log in to your MinerGate account
- choose the currency to mine by clicking on the coin’s name
- start mining
- check the balance in the mobile wallet. You can also see which currencies you are currently mining with your desktop and mobile applications
- customize your mobile mining experience
- Here are the options in the Settings menu:
- Thread Count. If you want the miner to use more or less of your phone’s power, just set the desired number of threads.
- Only when Charging. Turn this option on if you want the miner to work only when you are charging your phone. This can be used during your nighttime or when you are spending a lot of time in the office. Just plug in your phone and let it earn you some crypto coins.
- Mine on low battery. Carpe diem – if you want to get every share you possibly can with your phone even if it means getting your battery low, just turn on this option. When it’s turned off, the mining will stop when the battery charge goes down to 20%.
- Use Mobile Data. Want to mine on the go? Turn on mining with mobile data when you are having a couple of drinks with your friends or enjoying a peaceful weekend in the countryside.
Our team hopes that you will enjoy this beta version of the mobile miner. We are willing to get your feedback and suggestions, please let us know what you think at email@example.com.
