I have been looking into the feasibility of creating an app that mines crypto-currency. I have been searching the appstore for similar apps but none have come up where the miner is part of the app. Does anyone know if Apple allows mining from app? i.e would an app that does mining have even the slightest chance at being approved?
A quick skim through the App Store Review Guidelines didn't reveal anything obvious.
That said, section 2.4.2 currently contains the following:
Design your app to use power efficiently. Apps should not rapidly drain battery, generate excessive heat, or put unnecessary strain on device resources.
I'm guessing that would be the clause they'd use to reject any crypto currency mining, which would by definition be CPU/GPU intentive.
