Over the past decade, many crypto mining systems have been developed in different forms and ideas but never has it come as a browser.
In 2018, the world’s first browser with mining features was released in the United States of America. Users can mine crypto by doing what they were already used to doing – surfing the web, watching videos, chatting online and many more internet-related activities.
This browser is called CryptoTab Browser.
This browser supports over 40 languages across the world such as Arabic, Chinese, English, Greeks and Dutch etc. It’s basically a browser but developed specifically for the mining of Bitcoins, and it is accessible on desktops (windows & macs), and equally on smartphones (Androids, Ipads & Iphones) in the form of apps.

Mining of Monero (XMR) works through an algorithm, and using the algorithm in mining makes use of the unutilized part of the computer, in other not to tamper with the normal computer usage.

Is CryptoTab safe or a scam?
According to a detailed analysis about the platform, it’s a safe and trusted business, though it might not be more profitable at the starting point, but expands as time goes on when you increase your mining speed and also refer more users to the platform.
The most important thing to note is that the platform has kept a warning about some certain viral attack that may infect users’ computers and extract vital information from all other browsers on the system when you use the crypto tab browser.

CryptoTab is Blocked, any solution?
I felt a sudden frustration when I realised that I can no longer mine Bitcoin using the CryptoTab browser because my account was terminated.
A little research on my part showed that I wasn’t the only one with a terminated account. I felt even far worse when I realised that it could not be appealed.
If you’re still looking for how to unblock your CryptoTab account then you should stop because there’s no way. It’s clearly stated on CryptoTab’s website.
But you should be curious to know what happened, what led to the account termination. The answer is, somehow, knowingly or unknowingly you acted against the policy.
You may be wondering a third party comes in here. Well, a perfect example is the speed engine that you may have installed to speed up the mining process. So, instead of turning to third-party help, one should focus on different ways to increase the mining speed provided by CryptoTab itself.
I can certainly say the speed engine script caused the ban. Come to think of it, if CryptoTab allowed that they would have created the script themselves. That they didn’t provide it means they don’t support the use of it.
Now, you realise you can start all over again but follow the right path. We all know the mining speed is slow on the browser but better than nothing.
You should make sure the speed bar is adjusted to the maximum. Also, try running the browser in your background. In all, your device’s strength can also make a difference.
