TokenInsight Inc., the cryptocurrency industry-focused research and consulting firm based in Beijing, recently published a report covering the latest developments in the crypto mining industry. Researchers and analysts from the firm say that the industry experienced grew in the past six months but added that Chinese Bitcoin mines “suffered a great impact” in the first half of 2020.

In the report titled “2020 Q2 Cryptocurrency Mining Industry Report,” Tokeninsight discussed a number of issues and topics that affected the Bitcoin mining industry worldwide, according to Bitcoin.com. For example, one of the events mentioned in the report is the establishment of a national mining pool by the Uzbekistan government in January of 2020.

The report likewise mentioned Quebec’s Hydropower Agency of Canada's decision to allow Bitcoin miners to purchase 300MW of power from its grid. The Ukraine government’s statement in February that Bitcoin “does not require government supervision and intervention.”

Tokeninsight noted that Montona’s Missoula Country passed new regulations for miners in March while Sichuan’s local government officials approved the “Hydropower Consumption Demonstration Enterprises” in April. Meanwhile, Ukraine's acting Minister of Energy likewise announced in May that crypto miners might be able to obtain power from nuclear energy.

Unfortunately for Chinese Bitcoin miners, Tokeninsight also revealed that the country’s crypto mining industry was the hardest hit for the first six months of 2020 due to various reasons. The report cited the recent Bitcoin halving that cut mining revenue by half, the Covid-19 pandemic that caused delays in the shipment of mining rigs, and the disputes among mining hardware manufacturers such as the rift between Canaan and Bitmain.

Another factor that could be a challenge for Chinese Bitcoin miners is the monsoon season. Heavy rains in the Sichuan caused flooding and power outage resulting in the reduction of hash rates by as much as 15 percent, according to Coindesk.

Meanwhile, new players have entered the mining rig manufacturing niche forcing existing brands to upgrade their wares. “In the first half of 2020, new generation mining machines including Bitmain’s S19 and S19 Pro, WhatsMiner M30 series, and Canaan’s A1146 Pro and A1166 Pro have been launched one after another,” the report added.

Please beware there are many fake cryptocurrrency investment platforms out there, I got scammed twice before I met a genius hacker who helped retrieve my bitcoin. The whole plan was so smooth I could not doubt it. Bitcoin is actually a great investment option but one thing I discovered over time is that it is not possible to mine bitcoin so don’t be deceived. I invested 15BTC on a particular website called FoxBtc.io, I monitored the profit yielding but got locked out of the account before I could withdraw. I went online and met this recovery expert at recoverywealthnow360 at gm..l dot com who helped me retrieve my bitcoins back in few hours. He saved my life , he can save yours.

I know about stolen Bitcoins a little too much and this is because I have been tricked into investing in a Bitcoin company that turned out to be a scam, so I had my bitcoins stolen.

The digital and virtual nature of the cryptocurrency makes it hard to trace hence it is a nightmare when you get swindled of your coins. Losing my 9 BTC to fraudsters last year was agonizing and tortuous as I did not know where to turn. I gave up hope, beat myself up for being dumb but about the evil nature of the criminal fraudsters. I was licking my figurative wounds with a lot of “what ifs”, wishing to turn back the hands of time when I stumbled upon ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM

To be fair, I did not take them seriously at first but I decided to give it a shot as I literally had nothing to lose at the point. Recovering lost cryptocurrency is near impossible but by reporting the situation to ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM , you give yourself a fighting chance at recovering what was lost. They have the technology to do the near impossible. You can simply send an email or WhatsApp on +1 206 745-0108

Can the victims get their money back? Yes. If you have been the victim of an unregulated binary options scam or ay scam at all then you are 100% eligible according to the law to recover what was stolen from you. With the right approach and evidence of the fraud you were a victim of, you can recover your money. Those behind the binary options scam want to sell the idea that what happened to you was an ‘unfortunate investment’ when in reality what happened to you was theft via elaborate means. If you were the victim or know a family member or friend who was a victim of binary options fraud, you should speak to a financial fraud recovery expert - it is not too late to recover your money. Simply search ( CORECRYPTO.TECH) on google and go through their website.

Beware of Astrofx, it its not a good investment. I invested in this company and they locked me out of my account , I reached out to them countless times without any response. I thought my life was over. I was finally able to recover all my money with the help of a recovery company I came across through a friend. Happy to share my experience and guide anyone going through same. They helped people who have been ripped off by gaining access into the trader's account, withdrawing your funds and crediting you. Robin Hood if you may, only in this case they take back whats been stolen and hand it back to the rightful owner. Reach out to them through their website ( Alliedrecovery.org ) or send them an email on [email protected]
