What's new? Bitmain, a manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining equipment, has stopped the supply of devices to mainland China. Information about this is published in the WeChat account of the Chinese company.

What influenced Bitmain's decision? The company decided to stop shipping due to pressure from local authorities on the digital asset market. Furthermore, the decision is in line with the government’s eco-initiatives to neutralize carbon emissions into the environment.

“From October 11, 2021, Antminer will stop shipping to mainland China. For customers in mainland China who have purchased long-term products, our staff will contact them to provide alternative solutions.” the Bitmain message says.
