What is CryptoTab and what does it offer?
CryptoTab browser is a web browser that is designed to mine cryptocurrency. It’s a unique browser because it offers an opportunity for you to earn cryptocurrency through mining.
What’s unique about it is, normally, when miners mine cryptocurrency, they use computers that are built for that specific purpose and nothing else, whereas if you use CryptoTab for mining, you can still use your computer to do other stuff.
Now, to fully understand how CryptoTab works and if it will be worth it, we have to take a closer look at the earning opportunities it offers.
Option 1 – Mining
As mentioned above, you can earn from CryptoTab by mining currency. This is actually the main earning opportunity of the platform.
To start mining cryptocurrency, you will have to install the CryptoTab browser. This is the only prerequisite for this earning opportunity.
I just want to make a small warning here that when I installed it, my antivirus program at first blocked it and said it could be harmful.
I am not saying it will necessarily harm your computer but just sharing what warning I got so you know to consider this as well and make your own decision whether this is for you or not.
The browser is powered by Chromium, the same engine Google Chrome uses. So, it won’t feel very different from Chrome. You can also use the same browser extensions.
To start mining, you just have to open the browser and enable the mining feature. Now, you can set the mining speed of the browser to your preference. If you don’t know what this means, then let me elaborate.
If you set the mining speed higher, CryptoTab will be able to mine more cryptocurrency but at a certain cost. Your computer will consume more electricity when you set the speed higher. You will even notice it because you will start to hear your computer’s fans rotate faster.
The computer does this to compensate for the heat that your computer will generate because it will be employing more processing power. So, increasing the mining speed comes with two potential disadvantages. It will consume more electricity and it can shorten the battery life of the devices you use for this.
That’s why you actually have to find the proper balance when setting the mining speed. You can’t just crank the speed up and expect that your electricity bill won’t change and your computer won’t be affected in the long run.
So this is just something to think about when choosing your mining speed.
Option 2 – Affiliate program
The other way to earn from CryptoTab is to participate in their affiliate program also called a referral program.
The idea is really simple. You invite people to use CryptoTab using an invite link. When the person clicks the link and downloads CryptoTab and installs it on their computer or mobile, they will become your referral.
Their affiliate program is 10 levels deep. So, when your referral invites another person to use CryptoTab and they accept, he or she will become your 2nd level referral and so on and so forth until the 10th level.
That’s how their referral program works and it is actually a quite generous referral program compared to many others. So if you know others that might be interested in earning by mining, it definitely can be worth inviting them.
The deeper the referral level, the lower the reward you will receive. Now, as shown in the photo above, for your level 1 referral, you will receive a 15% commission every time your level 1 referral earns using CryptoTab.
The commission will be shouldered by CryptoTab and will not be deducted from your referral’s earnings. It’s a nice way to earn a passive income considering it goes 10 levels deep. But you have to make sure the people you invite are really interested in using CryptoTab.
How do you get paid?
If you were expecting to get paid in cash with CryptoTab, you will be disappointed. You will only earn cryptocurrency from it, specifically Bitcoin. So, if Bitcoin is not your thing, then CryptoTab is not for you.
Now, before you can withdraw your earnings, you will have to earn at least 0.00001 BTC (which is roughly $0.37 at the time of this writing).
The payout threshold is very low, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you can withdraw your earnings right away.
How much money can you make?
The amount of money you can earn from CryptoTab browser will mostly depend on how often you mine and how many referrals you can get – and also how many devices you will install it on. But let me be blunt – if you are expecting to become rich like this, you will become disappointed.
It takes quite some time to earn. Exactly how much you can earn will depend a lot on your internet speed and how many devices you install it on. If you only use CryptoTab on one device, it will take quite a lot of patience so if possible, you should definitely use it on several devices.
So, it’s not necessarily an efficient way to earn. But you also do not have to do anything at all to earn which is the strength of it, in my opinion. And compared to other mining options where you do not have to invest in special equipment, it is actually quite good.
Also, you can supplement your earnings through their referral program because it is ten levels deep. And if you decide to use CryptoTab, this is definitely something I would recommend.
And you also buy boost packages to increase your earning speed by up to 15 times. This is not something I would necessarily recommend you invest in right away. Instead, I would recommend you test it for about a week with as many devices as possible and then calculate how much you would earn with a boost package and see if it will be profitable.
It is definitely something that can be worth testing and it can help you earn faster but, in my opinion, you should just start with one of the smaller packages and then scale from here when you see how it goes.
Can you use it on mobile?
CryptoTab can be used on mobile devices since it has an app you can download. The app is available for both Android and iOS devices.
It both has a free and a paid version. However, it is not a free app. You’d have to buy it from the respective app store.
The paid version is a cheap app (around $2.50), and it will make it easier and faster to earn from your phone than the free version.
However, whether it is a good idea to mine using your mobile device really depends on your device since it will require a lot of processing power which can lead to your battery draining faster.
But if you have several mobile devices, you can also install it on the ones you do not use and just let it run in the background and earn like that without doing anything.
Who can use CryptoTab?
CryptoTab is available globally. You can download and install it on your device regardless of where you live.
Once you’ve installed the browser, you can sign up using your Google, Facebook, Twitter, or VK account. When you’ve signed in, you can start earning. You can set up your preferred mining speed and you can also set up your payment details.
Can you get support?
If you ever need any assistance or if you have any questions about CryptoTab, you can refer to the FAQ page on their website first. It discusses all of the important topics you need to know about the browser.
But if you can’t find what you are looking for, you can get in touch with their support team by scrolling all the way down to the bottom of their website and clicking on the “Contact Support” link.
It will walk you through the troubleshooting process and if still isn’t resolved, you can then submit your inquiry through the contact form the site will provide.
However, I have tried to get in contact with their support team and just got an automatic reply that referred back to their FAQ page.
So it can be difficult to get personal assistance if you should need that and this is an aspect of CrypotoTab that could definitely be improved, in my opinion.
CryptoTab is a browser that will allow you to earn Bitcoin by mining. It has a couple of good features but it also has several drawbacks you need to factor in.
So, let me wrap up this review by summarizing its pros and cons to give you an overview of what it has to offer. That way, you can decide if this is really a good fit for you or not.
- Offers a simple way to earn Bitcoin
- You can earn passively
- Great referral program
- Better than most other free mining options
- Limited earning opportunities offered
- It takes some patience to earn

If you are looking to earn extra cash or even cryptocurrency online, CryptoTab browser can be a way to do this passively.
And if you do it correctly and install it on several devices, let it run as much as possible, invite friends, and potentially get their boost packages, it can be an easy way to earn my mining.
You just need to do it with the right expectations and not expect to get rich or anything like that. But if you want to earn by mining without having to invest in special equipment, the CryptoTab browser is one of the best options I have come across.
