Sichuan shuts down Bitcoin miners

According to three local media reports, officials at China’s main bitcoin mining center in Sichuan have issued an order to shut down regional bitcoin mining operations for inspection. However, it is unclear how long the miners are expected to remain offline.

“Officials from related authorities, including the city’s energy bureau and technology bureau, met and decided to crack down on crypto mining operations,” the local news outlet said. PANews reported, citing anonymous sources.

A second local media outlet, BlockBeats, also reported a similar story. According to his report, bitcoin mining farms in the Sichuan region, particularly hydroelectric parks, must be closed by June 25. However, the report also stated that such parks expect an official document to be released today, although they have already received a notice.
