Google no longer allowing crypto mining apps in Play Store

Google adjusted the terms of its Play Store and is now no longer allowing apps that mine cryptocurrencies on Android-based devices. At the moment, there are only a couple of mining apps in the Play Store. Furthermore, Google is also banning apps with disruptive ads, as well as "repetitive" apps that mimic or offer similar functionality to already existing apps. Other apps that are no longer allowed are those created by automated tools, and there are also new restrictions on apps that facilitate the sale of firearms and firearms accessories.
When it comes to cryptocurrency apps, Google says mining apps are now prohibited, but apps that “remotely manage the mining of cryptocurrency” are still permitted. Apple recently banned apps that mine cryptocurrency, stating that, “the only cryptocurrency mining apps allowed are those that mine outside of the device, like cloud-based mining.”
