Honeyminer, the crypto mining app that lets users earn bitcoin with laptops, is gaining traction from it’s users.
The startup’s user base has swelled to almost 50,000 since launching in June. As per the firm, a third of the new customers are located in emerging markets and 5 percent hail from Africa, the company said.
In the startup’s Telegram channel, one user from Kenya even said in a survey that he is using Honeyminer to acquire his first bitcoin stash.
He states,”I’ve had an interest in bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and blockchain but I never quite understood what they meant.” He adds,”I am trying to raise money to buy a more powerful gaming desktop in the future where I can earn an average of $3 – $4 per day. So far I am one happy miner.”
This flood of users proves that mining pool software can work on computers with 1,100 different types of graphics processing unit (GPU) cards, according to Honeyminer co-founder Larry Kom. Honeyminer converts mining rewards from GPU-mineable cryptos such as ether and zcash into bitcoin and then deposits it directly in users’ digital wallets.
