Here are over a dozen cryptocurrencies you can mine on your phone

Most of these are not what die-hards would call mining – your phone doesn’t help maintain a network for decentralized cryptocurrency transactions. Instead, most of these just have you check-in on a regular schedule and credit you with crypto on that schedule for every check-in.

Regardless, if you add mining these cryptos to your daily routine, you may find that you one day accumulate a large enough amount to be valuable. (Note uPlexa is a true miner, so only run it when your phone will be idle since it is resource intensive.)
