US: Google Bans Cryptocurrency Mining Apps from Play Store


After banning cryptocurrency mining extensions from its Chrome Store earlier in the year, Google has now outlawed apps on its Play Store that engage in similar activity. In a new update to its developer policies, the tech giant has indicated that apps which are used to mine cryptocurrencies will be prohibited henceforth. However, the Mountain View, California-based tech firm made an exception with regards to apps which are used in the remote management of cryptocurrency mining as these will be allowed.
