Nobody Expected This After Google PlayStore Banned Crypto Mining Apps

Back in July 2018, Google PlayStore released an announcement stating their intention to completely eliminate crypto mining apps from the platform. A month has passed since then, and the current results are all but expected — the ban simply didn’t work.

Mining apps refuse to leave the PlayStore

Back in July of this year, Google announced that its platform will no longer allow crypto mining apps for fear of exposing its users to fraudulent and potentially harmful financial instruments. While this decision may have made sense considering the significant increase in crypto-related scams and theft, it didn’t seem to have made a significant impression on the platform’s users.

The decision to introduce this ban seemed pretty final but the PlayStore has yet to put it in effect.

Let’s take JSEcoin as an example. This is a blockchain startup from the UK that recently announced it is working on mining solutions for browsers. The new product is to provide an alternative to other methods of generating revenue, like advertising. When questioned about the ban, the company’s founder, John Sim, confirmed that it is coming into effect and that their company had reached out to Google to confirm that they are allowed to develop such a product and that their consumers will actually be able to use it.
