I really don't think any smarphone is going to have a processor that can provide enough hashing power.
You are just going to drain your battery for a couple pennies if you are lucky.
Gridcoin doesn't use hashing algorithms - it's mined through computational science and floating point math is employed most of the time. You run various scientific computations on your PC/Android through 30 different scientific projects (BOINC) and you get rewarded in Gridcoins for your computing efforts. CPU and GPU computations are rewarded proportionally, so you can net some Gridcoins even with your Android, especially if you have a newer and more powerful device. Many people have 5+ different Android smartphones/tablets - all together, their computing power is comparable to an older x86 CPU, so it's not negligible (at least for Gridcoin).

So I recently purchased a smart phone.  Should I be tapping into it's single core processor to get some more coins?  I'm sure it's not very cost effective, but just out of curiousity, has anyone tried this?

Is there anyone who has used a cell phone to mine one of the cpu mining chains?

If the coin can be mined using a graphics card, then mining on any regular processor is going to be a waste of money.

Agreed, so I'm talking about Litecoins, Tenebrix, or Fairbrix.

I believe Solidcoin now has some way of going through a GPU.

I do agreed with you also, But is there any altcoin in crypto world nowadays who are implementing this mining on a cellphone? I just wanna know because if there is I wanna try it to my mobile, it will be exciting for the mobile users if they will discover that there cellphone will mine bitcoinBTC.

At the moment mining isn't worthing from a basic home computer with a good CPU, or with a normal GPU card, how the hell is possible to think that mining BTC can be opossible and worthy from a cell phone?
You should consider how many computational resources the mining process need...
Just for laughing, maybe the people's that had theyr Samsung exploded or burned was ythose that tried to mining BTc with smartphone?  Grin

well it's something that is very difficult to do. Since the phone only has a chance or less specification efektiv in conducting mining bitcoin. The computer that has the best specifications not efektiv do mining let alone cell phone that only has a less good specifications in mining bitcoin. rightfully use mining is a good thing

Some advice. Do not do any mining on a phone, tablet or laptop. They always cut corners on thermal dissipation (they usually have to for size constraints and often to cut $ costs). They just will not survive sustained 100% CPU or GPU activity for any reasonable length of time. The only exception would be maybe an old phone (not single core) - you could use 1 of the cores to keep a blockchain alive that you are rescuing from abandonment or a new one that isn't mined in the wild yet.

Yep, I live in a hot climate and I keep my laptop's (li-ion) battery in the fridge most of the time.

keeping the battery in fridge is a very good idea  Grin so hows it working now ,try keeping the laptop too to avoid over heating   Cheesy
is it really possible to mine coins with the use of a cell phone or is it just a joke. even when i tried to mine using my laptop it is becoming red hot and usually shuts down automatically after a couple of hours and how is it possible to mine with a mobile  Huh

That's the same observation that i posed some posts before...
For me isn't reasonable to do mining with a cell phone, because system resources needed are too much for a phone.
As we already know, laptop haven't enough computational power to find blocks, it's a silly idea think that a cell phone can do
The only result you can get is that you will end with burn the phone just for mining less satoshis than a bad faucet.
I think didn't worth the risk Wink

well, i'm pretty sure it is possible (but it wont be easy).
the main question should be: Does it worth? you will be screwing up your phone for what? 0.01$/month?

Even the best phones don't have extremely good heat dissipation, even those that claim to have some sort of heatpipes and liquid cooling- for the most part, phones are made to much lower quality standards than computers, even with their chips. I've mined for a good 2 months straight on my phone and nothing terrible has happened yet, so if you'd like to, you're welcome to take the risk. I personally think it's pretty interesting, but if you actually use your phone for a good purpose and store data on it, don't. Don't risk your data.

good to hear that you used to mine using you phone and i would like to know which phone you are using to mine and how would you manage the heating issues and final thing i want to know is which coin have you mined and how much profit have you earned with it.

A Galaxy Grand Prime. I mined Dogecoin for the most part, and it's gotten me around 20 for the time I used it; I ran on one thread and it mined shares pretty slowly. Not much happened with such low power and core usage, but I still don't recommend doing it if you have precious data held on the phone or if it's expensive. My phone was practically free.

Im thinking the same thing too on which these  mining on  mobile phone would  be possible though  but  its not worth it  because  your mobile  phone  would   be worn up or even  blown  up and you  already  mined  a very small amount which is  really bad and we should not  think regarding  on doing this  thing though,

Man, if only every cell phone in the world was mining 1MHs of sha256 completely transparent to the user...we'd have something ridiculous...

There are almost as many cell-phone subscriptions (6.8 billion) as there are people on this earth (seven billion)—and it took a little more than 20 years for that to happen. In 2013, there were some 96 cell-phone service subscriptions for every 100 people in the world.Feb 25, 2014

I've tried it on my android phone before. but I think you are correct here. Not wort it,and besides when your phone got damage you got more problems. Using phone,you got only minimal satoshis better to join signature campaign IMHO.

What the fuck about that, if you're wanna trying for blaming the cell phone of the op(already retire from here) you should gonna be seeing about the date of the post are made by him. the single processor phone already be a best phone in their golden centuries. Angry

BURSTcoin will have an app to mine you can use on your phone very soon.  Check out their site:

 http://web.burst-team.us

In general it is a different type of where you use hard space on your HDD to mine.  Very green/eco friendly/low power consumption.  It may take some time to plot space on your hard drive but after that you can mine using very little resources...should be the same with a smart phone. 

Price of Burst has also been going up substantially the last few months.

I wouldn't recommend mining coins on your laptop or cell phone unless you don't mind them getting burnt at the end of the day. But mining BRUST and folding@home on laptop is alright. I have been mining for sometime and it is going without any problems. Recently, a friend of mine suggested me to fold@home for PEPECASH. PEPECASH has been appreciating for a while. I took got 5000 PEPECASH as a giveaway 3 weeks ago worth $0.48 and now it is 2$.

Your phone will get burnt and draw lots of power off the battery and damage it but with a laptop it won't so long as you habe enough cooling you are just fine.
Is pepecash better then burst ?

to be able to mine using mobile phone the coin must be like getting upload reward in private torrent  sites other than that if you start mining it will burn you mobile and that will be the reward

I believe that minergate has its own app where you can mine using your mobile phone. You can download it via Google Play Store given that your phone is Android running operated system.

Two rules for sucess:

1. Do not tell anyone!
