The internal power struggle continues Bitmain.
There has been an internal power struggle going in the bitcoin mining machine manufacturer giant Bitmain for quite some time. It all began when Bitmain’s co-founder Micree Zhan was ousted from the company without his consent. Micree Zhan has taken legal action against the company to get back his previous position at Bitmain. As reported earlier, Bitmain recently issued statements confirming that Micree Zhan has been ousted and threatened him and employees that are supporting him with legal action for not complying. Zhan, the company’s former chairman, and the legal representative was removed from his position by a shareholders’ decision in October 2019. The company clarified that ousted chairman Zhan has no right to act as the company’s legal representative or issue notices and instructions to company employees.
