Great news everyone!
Electonreum have just launched the long awaited Mobile Miner! A simple way to earn cryptocurrency from your smartphone...
If you own an Android smart phone, then Electroneum is the easiest way in the world to earn and spend a cryptocurrency.
You will find the link to the official app on the Google Play Store from http://electroneum.com
Your account has been automatically upgraded and you'll find the mobile miner is now enabled in the Electroneum app.
You might need to close and re-open the app to get the miner working.
Once we have this tested in the live environment we will start working with our mobile network partners to promote the app all over the world, so it's a very exciting time!
What is the mobile miner?
The mobile miner is completely revolutionary way to earn cryptocurrency by "mining" on your phone. In fact your phone isn't really doing the hard work of mining the coins, that's already done - this is a mining experience. "What's that?!", I hear you say, well, our mining experience looks like a miner, feels like a miner and pays out real Electroneum cryptocurrency, just like a complex command line miner running on a linux computer - BUT all you need to do is click the "START MINING" button on a free app to earn cryptocurrency! These coins are nothing to do with the coins emitted by the blockchain as part of the blockchain reward. Blockchain miners are still vitally important to Electroneum, but full mining is too complex for the average user. The mobile miner is a separate algorithm that rewards users with ETN cryptocurrency at no cost.
Why? Simple - we want to spread the word about how easy Electroneum is to use and get involved with. It's the easiest cryptocurrency in the world to get started with. Our mobile miner introduces people to cryptocurrency - without ANY risk. We are rewarding everyone who gets involved in the Electroneum project by allowing them to earn cryptocurrency via our free Android app.
What can you expect to earn?
We will be fine tuning the system over the next few weeks as we see how the mobile miner works with hundreds of thousands of users. We don't know what our "average" user's smartphone mining power is, but we expect users to be awarded a few US dollars of ETN value per month by running the app in the background. It doesn't use much data or battery life, but remember if your mobile data is expensive it is up to you to ensure the mining does not cost you money. Use it on wifi initially to understand the amount of data it uses.
Enjoy earning some Electroneum on your Android phones - there may be a few bugs and changes as we test this with hundreds of thousands and then millions of people, but as always, we will fix them as soon as we identify them!
Apple iPhone Launch
We've reduced the number app call backs to our servers to just once per hour to comply with Apple's limits, and this means if you were one of our beta miners you won't see the pending balance update as often as it did during beta. Leave it running - and you're mining time will be credited! We have the iPhone iOS version written and fully functional but it has not been approved by Apple yet. The more Android users we can get, the more we can show Apple that there is demand for this app.
Enjoy being the first people in the world to earn Electroneum Cryptocurrency
