Coin App | Paid Crypto To Drive | Coin App Mining | Rewards | Earnings Tutorial By Crypto Earnings 101


Do you want to earn an extra income just by walking, running, cycling and even driving? Welcome to my blog Crypto Earnings 101 and in this Coin App post I will show you exactly how to make extra money and give you an inside look into the app. Coin App is an app created by the developers XY Labs, where you “mine” tiles in the real world. When you mine a tile, geographical data is sent to the server and in return for this data you get rewarded. There are pros and cons to this app, and I will go over both in detail. This way you can decide for yourself if it is the right app for you to earn passive income. If you think this is the right opportunity platform for you, I will leave a link below, signing up through this link will automatically give you a 1k coin starting bonus towards your first withdrawal.

Who Can Join?

Before I start going over the app, I will first go over who can join. You can download and install via google play and the app store. The app is free to join and you can earn on the basic plan, however there are also paid subscriptions. I will go over these later on, as there are some disadvantages and advantages to upgrading your membership. Coin is an app, so you will need a mobile phone or tablet to be able to earn and there are no limitations on who can sign up and install, as this is available in all countries.

How Do You Geomine?

When you first log in on the app, the main screen looks quite simple and almost looks like google maps or similar GPS apps, but there are many different features available to earn, which I will go over but the company XY Labs are constantly updating and bringing out new ways to earn through the app. I won’t be able to go over everything but will go over the main ways to earn and then you can explore the app if you decide to use it. When you first log into the app, you will see a mining button at the bottom, this was the first option to earn on the app and it is still one of the most popular ways to earn. You simply press the button, it mines the tile you are currently in, it collects coins and stores them in your balance at the top. There is a tab below called “Auto Explore”, once you have mined/collected tiles 15 times, you can press this button and the app works passively from here. You will earn more as you move around and mine more tiles, you can still mine the same tile over and over again. This just takes a bit longer, but this option is still good and it still works passively.

How Do You Earn Extra Coins At Home?

Let’s just say you are sitting at home and want to earn more coins. The best way to do this is by clearing the tile you have already mined by playing “mini games”. As soon as you have played, this clears the tile and re-mines it. You can do this over and over again until either your fingers fall off or you get bored. Another easy and effective way to earn more coins is by watching ads, these appear as a green play button in the top left of the screen and you get more ads the more tiles you “geomine”. This works alongside playing mini games as the more mini games you do, the more likely you are to get ads appearing in the top left of the screen. You can easily earn an extra 500-1k coins per day just for playing mini games and watching ads. XY Labs have just recently introduced audio ads too, so if you are lucky enough to be in an area to get these, this is another passive way to make coins. I will now go over other parts of the app and more ways to earn extra coins.

More Ways To Earn Coins

There are quite a few different icons on the right hand side of the app and some more icons over near the top left. These icons are important to keep an eye on. The orange icon on the right is an easy one to click on daily, this is called “HODL Rewards”. You receive 3.6% annual yield on your total balance of the coins you hold in the app and this can be collected once per day. I believe the reset day for collecting is around midnight UTC time. Once you click on the “collect button”, your coins automatically get added to your total balance. You also have a purple icon on the right which shows you how many coins you will receive as a bonus drop. This happens once per week and it can sometimes be quite a lot of coins depending on your usage and membership level. To claim the weekly bonus drop, a small orange “airdrop” box will appear in the top left, simply tap this, a box will appear in the middle of the screen, open it and you will be awarded coins. Next, we have a blue icon on the right icon called geomining modes, they have different ways to help you earn, such as counting your steps, some mental exercise tasks and gamified travel. The gamified travel mode is quite interesting, if you know where you are going, you can type in the address or place and when you reach your destination a small goedrop package is waiting for you. I think it is about 1 coin for every mile, it’s not a lot but if you walk a lot or if you are a delivery driver, this mode is a good way for gaining some extra coins on the go. If you click the + sign in the top right, it will bring up a menu with more options to earn. A tab called “Rewarded Tasks” all depends on which country you live in, but you can earn extra coins by doing surveys, playing games, scanning products, store visits and other offers. Going back to the + menu, there are other options too, the “extension Devices” tab is something I will go over with you later on in this post, but this is a must if you wish to start using Coin App. I will now talk a bit about the referral program and the sign up bonus.

How Do You Get 1k Coin Joining Bonus?

You can earn extra coins by inviting others to the app, whatever they mine you will receive 10% of their total earnings for that day and this will be airdropped to you the following day in the form of an orange box which can be found in the top left corner of the screen. When you sign your friends or co-workers up to the app, make sure that you go to the + sign in the top right, click on the “Referral Rewards” tab and click on the invite link. It should automatically copy your link. This way, when they sign up through your link they will automatically be rewarded 1k coins and this can be used to go towards their first payout when they reach 10k coins. If you haven’t already signed up, I have left the description at the top of this post. This way you will also receive 1k coins for joining, if you don’t sign up through anyone's invitation link you will not be rewarded with a joining bonus, so this is something to consider when you are first starting out.

How Do You Add Your Payout Address?

Before I talk about getting paid and the different ways to get paid, I am going to go over what you should do before redeeming your coins. If you click on the person or the diamond in the top left of the app, it will open up another menu, click on “Redeem Details” and this is where you can put your Coinbase address, ERC-20 wallet address and your shipping address. Once you have updated the app with your correct info, verified this in an email and you have a minimum of 10k coins you can now redeem your coins to your wallet.

Payout Methods

I am going to go over some of the different payout methods. In the top of the app you can see your balance, if you tap on this, it will bring up another menu. You have many different ways to redeem your coins, you can get paid in XYO, which is obviously the main token from XY Labs and the developers of Coin App. You can also get paid in BTC, ETH and lots of other cool products that can get shipped to your address. You need to earn 10k coins to be able to redeem your coins to XYO. This is the most preferred option for most users of the app, it is a crypto currency and can be easily exchanged to other crypto or cashed out on many different exchanges, such as, Coinbase or Kucoin. When you click on redeem, you will be given 2 options, one for Coinbase and one to another erc-20 supporting wallet, some examples are Coinomi, Metamask and even a ledger nano. Coinbase is fee free, so this means you won’t pay any gas fees when you redeem your coins. Ethereum option has a small XYO fee and this varies depending on what time of day it is and how busy the network is, so just keep this in mind when redeeming this way. ok, so once you have decided what option you want to go with, select Coinbase or Ethereum wallet and then confirm. 

You will receive an email, you need to verify this or your withdrawal process won’t start and your coins will be refunded back to you within 3 days. Once you have verified, simply wait for your XYO to be received to your chosen wallet, this can take up to 7 days, but from my experience it is usually around 3 days. Another thing to note is that the coin to XYO rate does change throughout the day in relation to the crypto market. If you click on your balance and bring up a menu, you can then see in the XYO section that there is x amount of XYO per 1000 coin. This does change and if you want the best rate for your coin to XYO, then this is where you would check. Next I will go over how much you can potentially earn and the different subscriptions Coin App offers.

How Much Can You Earn?

I will now talk about the earning potential from my own personal experience and what you need to consider when you start using Coin App. On their site they have claims that people are making a lot of money just by using this app, however don’t think you will earn this as soon as you start, everyone has a different situation, approach or strategy when using the app. I have personally made over £4k just by using this app over the last 2.5 years. The reason I made that much from this app is simply by getting paid in XYO and holding it patiently in my wallet until the time was right to sell. This is definitely the power of crypto currency and if you have enough patience, this could be a good option for you. XYO is currently trading just under 1 cent at the time of writing this post and  the all time high was around 7 cents. It will be interesting to see where this project goes in the future and I have very high hopes for this coin. Just to clarify, I am not a financial advisor and this is just my personal thoughts and experience.

I have been using this app now for over 2 years. I don’t move around too much, but this is one of the easiest and best ways to earn. You can earn a lot over time if you have patience and a good strategy. XYO was at a low price for a very long time and the people that held their XYO really benefited when the price reached $0.07 last year. Could it reach a NEW all time high in the future? I think so, but we will just have to keep being patient and wait till the next bull run to find out. As with all crypto currencies, always do your own research and only invest what you can afford to lose. If you believe in this kind of project, like myself, then earning and stacking XYO on a daily basis could have a big earning potential down the road. To be able to earn a decent amount of coin per day you really need to have a few things at your disposal, a spare mobile phone or tablet that can be used purely for Coin App, a sentinel x BLE and lots of patience. I will now go over what the Sentinel’s are and what they do.

Earn More With a Sentinel X

I have mentioned the Sentinel X, so what is it? The Sentinel is a device that connects to your app and boosts your earnings by verifying your location and improving the data that is sent back for every tile that is geomined. With the Sentinel, you earn up to x12 per tile. So for example if you are on a basic plan, instead of earning 0.01 coin per tile you will earn 0.12 coin per tile. There are two different types of Sentinel’s you can order from the site. BLE and NFC. The BLE is a Bluetooth device, it connects to your mobile phone and will stay active until it is disconnected. This is the best option if you want something more passive. The NFC is a new updated Sentinel x, it is convenient to store as it is the same size as a bank card and it works like contactless technology. You have to make sure you have NFC technology on your device, simply have the app open, tap your device and it will activate the Sentinel boost for 4 hours, the sentinel NFC stays active for 12 hours on the pro plan. This Sentinel option is ideal if you are going out for a drive, cycle, run or walk as the NFC is easy to carry around. You can order one of these for free through the site, you just need to pay for shipping costs.

I personally have both Sentinel’s, the BLE stays at home and it is on 24/7 and the NFC is always stored in my wallet ready to get used when I go for a drive, cycle or walk. To get the most out of the app, you need to run the app 24/7, have a Sentinel device and be patient with it. Not everyone makes the same amount of coin per day. Some people have driving jobs and can earn over 10k+ coins per day. So if you have a driving job or know anyone who does then this app is a great way to earn some extra crypto passively without doing much work. Earnings also depend on what subscription plan you choose, which I will go over now.

Coin App Subscription Plans

Coin App has different subscription plans, basic is completely free to use and this is a preferred option for a lot of users, especially if you don’t have a driving job or you don’t travel much during the day. You can stay on a basic plan for as long as you want, you will always be able to earn and withdraw your earned coins, the only downside to the basic plan is that it takes longer to earn coins compared to other plans. However, you don’t have to worry about breaking even for the month, so this is a big PLUS for this plan and all the profit is yours.

On the site (and app) there is a Plus and Pro plan, each plan has increased rewards and you can get up to x3 on the Pro plan. This does come with a $35 monthly price tag and it isn’t for everyone, you need to consider this before purchasing any of these plans. They have a free 3 day trial via the app so you can see how much you can potentially earn and take an average from there to see if the plan is right for you. 

There are a lot of negative reviews on the app and play store with people saying that the plans aren’t worth it or it is a scam, this is just people not doing their research before signing up. If you drive for a living then a Pro plan is probably worth you time, but again, please do your own research on this. If you choose to purchase any of the plans, NEVER purchase through the app or play store as they take a commission and increase the price slightly. The cheapest way is by going through the Coin App site directly, logging in using your registered email and password and purchasing the plan that way. The paid plans aren’t for everyone and it is really down to you to decide what is right for you, some case studies might show someone earning a lot of money, but they also might drive 12 hours a day, so all of these things need to be taken into consideration when it comes to using this app.


To sum up, I think this platform is a very interesting idea and I am looking forward to seeing what XY Labs comes up with in the future with updating the app and more ways to earn crypto. The earning potential really depends on how you use your phone. If you have a spare phone and can dedicate this to Coin App, then your earnings will be greater than someone who only runs the app for a few hours. Some more variables would be how much you move around everyday, do you have a Sentinel, do you drive for a living, how many surveys you do, mini games you play, what subscription you are on, and if you use the app daily, it is really too difficult to say exactly how much you can earn. 

One of the negative points I will bring up about this app, is that you need to have it running on your phone to be able to earn, they do have a screensaver option in the settings menu if you are planning on running your phone for a long time between using it. I suggest starting on the basic plan and see how much you can make daily, then work up to a free 3 day trial if you think this is the right option for you. Overall, I really enjoy running this app on a daily basis. It is passive, many different ways to earn, they pay out in crypto, which is always nice and payouts are received quickly to your wallet. I have left my video below from my YouTube channel, with a detailed video showing Coin App. Feel free to like and subscribe. I appreciate this a lot and this really helps my channel to grow so I can help more people earn free crypto online. Thank you.
