What’s new? FlexPool, a major Ethereum mining pool, stated that it has suspended the service of Russian IP addresses due to the invasion of Ukraine. The company said that despite its personal views, it does not interfere in politics, but it cannot ignore this situation. The information about this statement appeared on Twitter.

What did FlexPool say? The company has apologized to Russian users who do not support the conflict between the countries. FlexPool’s representatives assured that if the situation is resolved peacefully, they will be able to serve all Russian miners again. They added that they will use personal funds to make amends to them.

“This is a war that may end the world. It certainly is ending the lives of many innocent people in Eastern Europe. While there is little we can do, it would be wrong to profit off of it or fund it indirectly. We are canceling service to all Russian IPs and paying out outstanding balances.”
