Bit Miner is a social hub for Bitcoin miners to collectively collaborate and track their Bitcoin mining efforts. It is powered by a Rails 4 service layer and is hosted on Heroku at the following endpoint:

What is a Miner?

Miners are individuals who run computer systems to repeatedly calculate hashes with the intention to create a successful block and earn coins from transaction fees and new coins created with the block itself. The term references an analogy of gold miners who dig gold out of the ground and thus 'discover' new gold that can be used to create new coins, with a similar kind of discovery occurring with a successful hash to create new Bitcoins.

Client Interfaces

There are two client interfaces found inside of this project. The primary client interface allows you to view, create, update and delete Miner profiles. A secondary client is also baked inside of the wrappers/ios/bitminer directory. It is an iOS application allowing you to view Miners' avatar, nickname and mining statistics.

If you would like to run the app on an iPhone, please submit a request to join my "BitMiner" TestFlight team and I will add your device. Alternatively, download the BitMiner_1_0_0.ipa build in the wrappers/ios/builds directory and resign the archive with your provisioning profile.
