Chinese Crypto Mining Farm Shuts Down Because Of Coronavirus – A cryptocurrency mining farm, BTC.top, has been forced to shut down over the coronavirus epidemic. Per a Weibo post published by BTC.top’s CEO Jiang Zhuoer, the mining farm’s machines have been shut down as the firm was told it is not allowed to keep working at the moment.
Zhuoer’s post details personnel at the mining farm never stopped working before the quarantine period being enforced. The mining farm shut down shortly after cryptocurrency miner manufacturer Bitmain, Canaan, and MicroBT issued notices to their clients over shipment delays.
Businesses in China are being affected by the coronavirus outbreak, as people are now staying indoors over the existing quarantine control.
