How To Mine With Your Phone?


As smartphones continue to grow in power, users without a PC are curious about mining on their mobile devices. How do you mine on a smartphone? We hear this question more and more often and decided to answer it in our article..

This guide is for informational purposes only and does not encourage you to mine on your smartphone. Kryptex is not responsible for any actions you decide to take. Prolonged mining on a smartphone can damage it, the battery and display may deteriorate, and the phone can overheat. All actions you take are at your own risk. Do not use your primary smartphone for mining.

What You Need to Begin Smartphone Mining:

  1. You will need a smartphone or tablet running Android, no older than 2016. Apple devices are not suitable for mining.

  2. The smartphone processor must feature ARMv8 x64 architecture. Processors with ARMv8 x64 (x32) emulation will not support mining. You can verify your processor using the AIDA64 application in the CPU section.

  3. Choose the coin you wish to mine. On the Kryptex Pool, you can mine XMR (Monero) or ZEPH (Zephyr Protocol). Register a wallet for your coin, or sign up on the website if you prefer payments in Bitcoin or USDT.

  4. Be aware that smartphone mining generates considerable heat and consumes battery life. Connect your smartphone to the Internet and charger. Avoid using your primary smartphone for mining.

  4. Once you save the settings, go to the "Miner" menu, tap on "Select Configuration," pick your profile with the settings, and hit "Start."

  5. After 15-20 seconds, mining will start, and you'll see your hashrate. Check the "Log" tab for details about the mining process or potential errors. To stop mining, tap "Stop."

  6. Your device will appear in your Kryptex account under "Hardware" section or in pool statistics within 10 minutes after start. Your account will have estimated profitability after the first share is found.

The app has a developer commission of 5%. To reduce it to 1%, go to the "Settings" section, "Settings" tab. At the bottom of the page, adjust the "Donate Level" indicator to your preferred percentage and save the settings. You can configure other application settings on this page.

How to Receive Payout?

  1. If you mine to your Kryptex account email, you can request payment in the "Request Payout" section. Please note that different payout methods have varying minimum amounts and network fees. We recommend USDT BEP20 payouts, starting from 1.5 USDT BEP20.
    • The displayed profitability depends on numerous factors and is calculated in real time. Achieving this profitability requires continuous 24/7 mining for a month.
  2. If you mine to a wallet address on a pool, the payout will be automatic once you accumulate enough coins for the payout. You can set the payout threshold on the pool in the "Settings" section.
