Hi,

If your app is deployed on thousands/millions of devices, you can monetize it with monero mining and earn really huge income.

We manage all the complexity of backend servers and mining operations and you get a really simple control panel to monitor your hashrate and earnings.

Features of our service are:

1. Very easy Integration to any app

2. 0 knowledge of crypto currency mining required.

3. Several key features to ensure 0 inconvenience to your app's user.

->Mining Only when device's battery level is greater than 70%(variable as per your choice), so that user does not have any battery issues.

->Mining only on those phone which have at least 4 processor cores

->Using only 1 processor core (variable as per your choice) for mining, rest of the cores are free for user's own work.

->No mining when device's sleeping, so battery usage only when user is actually using his phone.

4. You have a control panel to real time monitor the hashrate generated by your apps.
