Cryptocurrency mining is a daunting task for sure. It involves setting up a rig with numerous CPUs and GPUs for optimum mining performance. Also, it can drain your wallets faster than it can fill it with the cost of all the mining equipment and also, the energy bills!

Well, mining has never been easier. A famous jailbreak tweak developer Elias Limneos, who is the developer who developed tweaks like Callbar, has also developed a mining application capable of mining CryptoNote currencies, namely Ethereum, Electroneum, Monero etc.

So, aiming at the technical stuff, CryptoNote currencies don’t require GPUs. They can blissfully mine under the power of CPUs. Now, the iPhone processors ranging from A7 to A11 Bionic are based on the ARM64 architecture, which in other words can be called as a 64-bit architecture. Taking advantage of this ability Elias Limneos created MobileMiner, which is entirely based upon the ARM64 architecture. Although, don’t forget that the latest devices will benefit the most from this app as they would create the best hash rates.

Moreover, it should be noted that using this app to mine cryptocurrency on your daily driver is not recommended, as mining has to be performed continuously. And continuous mining could cause serious battery damage and degradation in CPU performance.

Speaking of usability, MobileMiner has a simple interface, is extremely easy to configure and does not require a jailbreak to work. This means that basically anyone can use this app without any problems. Though it is preferred for a user to mine Ethereum, any other CryptoNote currency can be mined.

Although to start off with the mining process, you’ll require an Electroneum account from which you can obtain a wallet address and a pool URL. You can create an account from Electroneum’s official website.

Disclaimer: Out of all the revenue you generate from mining, 1% of that revenue will go to the developer Elias Limneos. Of course, you can opt out of that, but supporting a developer for its work isn’t bad, right?
