The internet giant google has joined with apple, and google has updates its developer policy and decides to ban crypto mining applications on play store.
According to report, google disclosed that the Google has updated the regulation for Google Play Developers
“We don’t’ allow that mine cryptocurrency on android devices. We permit apps that remotely manage the mining of cryptocurrency.”
In a move that echoes Apple’s revisions to its rules for cryptocurrency Apps made in June, the ban doesn’t preclude the management of mining – which specifically explained that:
“The only cryptocurrency mining apps allowed are those that mine outside of the device, such as cloud-based mining.”
Apple’s move – and presumably Google’s – is intended to ensure that developers don’t inefficiently use the phone’s power, generate excessive heat or put strain on the device’s resources.
According to the last year, Apple is conceded that it deliberately slows down older devices to prolong the phone’s lifespan, it is understandable that cryptocurrency mining – a computationally very intensive process – is not at the top of their list of priorities for app developers.
