What is known about the monitoring system? The tool, called the 360 Threat Situation Monitoring System, will be able to identify the miners' IP addresses and their locations. This will help combat illegal cryptocurrency mining at the level of the regional authorities. The solution uses big data analysis, a traffic monitoring system, as well as active protection mechanisms.

As previously stated, the largest mining pools have faced disruptions on the night of November 26. According to the experts, it could be due to the Chinese authorities' opposition to illegal mining in the country.
