If you have not setup your Voice Coin Ethereum wallet address when you disable the action, any coins you have mined will be lost.

Due to development limitations, if you do not intereact with the Voice Coin action for 30 days, you will lose your mining statistics and will be required to repeat the wallet setup process.
