They are taking actions with these mining apps but they aren't taking actions with the phishing sites and fake websites that has been advertised by them.

If this is the start of them stepping in with these apps, I hope they'll next those fake websites that mainly targets crypto newbies.
Exactly, they can’t control that scam sites from spreading. Well this is quiet not new because google always make ways to do shit things on cryptocurrency. Its quiet unfortunate that they are preventing this technology from making a good run in this market, well they can’t do this on cryptocurrency forever.
I don't mind if they can remain that too aggressive to crypto or they are very much skeptic to it but the action as the most popular search engine where they are allowing a lot of phishing sites to exist on their search query is really unethical.

They are taking actions if somebody reports that site/app that's on their engine is a fake or is only there to cause harm.

SO many minning apps are available on playstore, but i think most of them are fake, and givving nothing. Freebitcoin and freedoge coin app on playstore is providing very few btc and doge coin but in long run.

I heard the news before. But i can't understand why they did this. As far as i know Google has no right to ban cryptocurrency mining app. So it’s not justifiable.

Actually it's a wise decision from Google. Those apps in playstore that were telling you that you can mine bitcoin/satoshi by solving captchas and clicking/watching annoying ads are "Scam and Fake apps". I've tried one of those before but guess what? A bitcoin mining app? Where you can easily modify the value of satoshi by modifying its "Shared preferences" file?

I assure that the developers of those apps earned some bucks for fooling people to use their apps. Its Google's great move to take some action to those fraudulent developers and apps  Undecided

The new updates on Google again hit the crypto headlines due to its ban on cryptocurrency mining apps on Play Store. Play Store, the pre-installed Android based app will no longer feature crypto mining apps for the crypto enthusiasts. The developer policies of Google Play Store have completely prohibited the cryptocurrency mining apps which supposedly feature disruptive ads.

Amidst this stringent measure, the company has still considered giving permission to those apps which focus on remotely handling crypto mining. Android's digital distribution services has previously released update that led to the banning of all apps pertaining to fake ID.
Hmmm.... That's interesting, but I don't see that as a real threat for us because you can easily download and use applications on android smartphones without having to download it directly from Play market.

Many cryptocurrency mining apps are living on the Play Store. Some of them aren’t harmful, but the concern is the existence of the apps that hide the mining code and perform cryptojacking. I think they are doing the right thing to protect their users. However, they mentioned in the updated policy that "We permit apps that remotely manage the mining of cryptocurrency,”. So you still can use these apps.

And what is the real purpose of Google forbiding bitcoin mining applications via Android? Will it cause bad for Google Play Store? I don't think so, because the APK was not made on behalf of Google, right? Huh

That is another bad news in cryptocurrency I can't understand why they did this to us and to crypto. I hope that they find a way to get back the crypto. But they have a reason why they do that because most of this crypto mining apps are scam and they use it to scam newbies who are new to crypto world.

Bitcoin is a decentralised crypto currency and this is the reason that there is no such proper authentic regulating body over the bitcoin who could keep eye over all the bitcoin activities thus leading to illegal use of bitcoin so because of this many countries and big companies are not legalising bitcoin and this could be the most probable reason why google has banned the crypto ads but to their knowledge once Facebook and Twitter has banned crypto ads leading to decrease in the valuation of their stocks.

I think that this is how it adversely affects Google or just this kind of public relations advertising such a move Well, whatever the direction of Google in the right to make such decisions, I personally do not use any such applications to get bitcoins or other coins

We know that google is a big company. Making an app on playstore is very easy to do and it really depends on the developer on how he do it. Like for what  i know is that they can see our information and tracks what we are doing. So for me this a good news that playstore will ban crypto mining apps on playstore becauase it is not really safe and google can't track all day the happenings. But don't worry there are still crypto mining websites that are 100% safe to use.

Most exploit applications are just scams that contain a lot of ads. and eat plenty of your time. I'm about to pull out my first iphone gen and go to the town earning lots of satoshi, I can buy another week when it dies. If we are only able to make people update their site and let people know you can no longer use the CPU / GPU. If this is their start stepping in with these applications, I Hopefully they will follow those fake sites that primarily target new nannies. Freebitcoin and freedoge coin applications on the playstore are providing very little btc and doge coin but in the long run.

no there aren't. any mining website or commonly known as the cloud miners are a terrible things to use because they are either scams since they run a ponzi scheme to make money or they eventually are forced to turn into a ponzi scheme when they fail to make profit and have to sell hashrate they don't have.

Maybe because there are many mining apps with fake promise to be able to pay the miners. I have found many fake miner apps, if you mine the coin and want to withdraw the coin, you won't be able to do it or it is pending. If google banned mining apps from now, i wonder how electroneum will create their mobile mining apps.

Mobile has not met the demand for Mining, the Google ban does not affect much to users! If mining on the phone will adversely affect the daily use of mobile devices!

Actually the crypto mining is not possible with the Android hardwares because it is not designed for the 24/7 operations so if you try to do that then it will wreck your phone and I don't know how they are oing to create policies against it because most of the apps that are claiming mining apps are no related to that job it simply a piece of shot to advertise some pop-up ads.

I have seen an Electronium Coin mining app in google play store. That was good and they paid to the users! But after Electroniums success, many mining apps were created. Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple mining apps were among them. Maybe they were not official, they did not pay to mobile phone miners. I think Google's decision is okay! People were getting scam!

I knew FB and Google doese not support crypto. But it is not important. I believe they do not approve crypto because it is not good. They have own reasons. Anyway, there are still hundreds corporations in the market accept and use crypto technology. That's enough
