Imagine Mining Monero or Ethereum from your Smartphone – Experts recommend BTCS for Mobile Mining | – Bitcoinist


Mining cryptocurrencies like Monero and Ethereum has become a space associated with the wealthy. However, experts have shed light on Bitcoin Spark (BTCS), a crypto that can be mined using a mobile phone.
To start mining Monero (XRM), you’ll need a computer with decent processing power and specialized mining software. Monero utilizes a privacy-focused algorithm called RandomX, which is designed to be resistant to ASIC mining and to promote more decentralized participation. After obtaining the necessary software and configuring your mining settings, your computer attempts to solve complex mathematical puzzles in order to verify transactions. Successful solving of these puzzles results in the creation of a new block on the Monero blockchain and a reward of newly minted XMR coins. It’s important to note that while mining  XMR can be profitable, it requires careful consideration of factors like electricity costs and the mining difficulty of the Monero network.
The Merge shifted Ethereum from a Proof-of-Work (PoW) to a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. Therefore, instead of mining, Ethereum now relies on validators who lock up a certain amount of Ether (ETH) as collateral to participate in the network’s consensus process. Validators take turns proposing and confirming blocks, and the rewards are distributed based on the amount of Ether staked. The Merge significantly reduced the energy consumption associated with PoW, but its reward system is still susceptible to centralization.
Bitcoin Spark is a hard fork of Bitcoin. It has similarities with the original cryptocurrency, including mining and a max supply of 21 million, but has upgrades and improvements that set it apart and position it for greater growth.
The Bitcoin Spark network will have faster transaction processing and lower gas fees due to its increased individual block transaction capacity, reduced time per block, and a larger number of nodes. Bitcoin Spark will also increase its utility by supporting smart contracts on its network. This is achieved through a multi-layered design that includes separate contract execution systems with singular network finality. The layered architecture will allow for smart contract development in Rust, Solidity, Vyper, and any high-level language compilable to EVM bytecode. This opens up Bitcoin Spark to a wider range of developers and smart contracts, fostering a robust ecosystem of dApps.
Bitcoin Spark is in its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) stage and has conducted KYC audits to ensure transparency and security. Phase 2 of the ICO has BTCS priced at $1.75 and is offering a bonus of 15%.
BTCS is the native token of Bitcoin Spark, and its mining process is different from any other in the blockchain. Bitcoin Spark uses a proprietary consensus mechanism known as Proof-of-Process (PoP), which is a cross between Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS).
Miners are required to provide a stake in the network in addition to their mining devices’ processing power in order to validate the blocks and earn mining rewards. The processing power provided will then be rented out to Bitcoin Spark’s clients as remote computing power, who will be required to pay with BTCS. And the revenue generated is automatically sent to the mining pool. A miner’s reward is calculated as a blend of their individual stake and the work done using their processing power. However, it doesn’t automatically mean that the higher the stake and the more work done, the higher the rewards since Bitcoin Spark uses an algorithm that ensures rewards per additional power and per larger stake size decrease exponentially.

Validation, mining, and processing will all be routed through the Bitcoin Spark application. This user-friendly application, created by the Bitcoin Spark development team, will be compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, Mac OS, and Linux devices. It will allow users to mine by simply permitting access to their device’s processing power. This novel system ensures the work and power consumption for mining is relatively low. The application will function in an isolated environment that doesn’t interfere with any other part of the device. It will adjust itself to the resources it can use on the device, accounting for overheating, battery, and simultaneous usage requirements. Users can also set the number of device resources permitted for mining use themselves. This approach makes BTCS mining open to anyone with a smart device.
