Cryptocurrency mining apps have been Banned from the Play Store
Google has updated its Play Store developer policies to ban several more categories of apps. These included cryptocurrency mining ones and apps with disruptive ads.
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.
The only cryptocurrency mining apps allowed are those that mine outside of the device, like cloud-based mining. People who use cryptocurrency apps to manage thier online mining accounts or those who manage thier machines via mobile do not need to worry. And also those developers who do not offer mining directly from the app or mobile phone can relax as well.
Repetitive apps are now prohibited in the Google Play store as well. These are apps that mimic or provide the same experience as apps that already exist on the platform. Apps can be removed if they copy content from another app without adding anything new or unique.
Or if a developer makes multiple apps that have similar content and user experiences. Apps that are created by an automated tool, wizard service, or based on templates and submitted to Google Play by the operator of that service on behalf of other persons are not allowed.
