If the source code is not available don't trust any app that says it can mine, if is not compiled by you could be a scam! Compile your own binaries to be sure!

Some Tips:

  • Always download mining software from official and trusted sources.
  • Regularly update your mining software to ensure compatibility with the latest network protocols and security patches.
  • Monitor your mining operation regularly for any irregularities or suspicious activity.
  • Consider using a dedicated mining device or computer to avoid potential security risks to your personal or work devices.
  • Ensure you have a reliable internet connection and sufficient power supply to maintain uninterrupted mining operations.
  • Keep your mining address and credentials secure to prevent unauthorized access to your mining rewards.
