As reported by Bloomberg, China is moving towards putting a complete ban on mining cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin. In accordance to a document posted by the National Department and Reform Commission of China, the mining of cryptocurrencies should be completely banned as it causes serious wasatage of resources.

 

China is known to be the largest hub of cryptocurrency mining with huge mining rigs been set up in the country. Earlier, China has also banned small investors to invest in security token offerings or STOs and only large investors with more than $1 million funds are allowed to invest in such projects. Now, the country is planning to take strict action against cryptocurrency miners in the country.

 

Cryptocurrency miners were earlier attracted to China due to their cheap electricity rates and subsidies in the country, however, due to the strict actions being taken by the government with the guidelines of the NDRC which has disincentivized cryptocurrency mining, a lot of miners have shut down their operations or moved to other nations.

 

Largest Mining Pools in China:

China has been a hub for some of the largest cryptocurrency mining polls. Even though the mining pools have been shifting to other countries, there has been some effect of the ban on the market for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as the mining is a major part of the overall working of cryptocurrencies.
