Cryptocurrency mining operators, including Huobi Mall and BTC.TOP, are suspending their operations in China after Beijing set out to crack down on Bitcoin mining and trading, and send digital currency.
The State Council, chaired by Vice President Liu He, announced the move on Friday – the first time the council has set up a money-making business, China’s largest business, making up 70% of the world’s revenue.
Crypto miners use highly sophisticated computer equipment, or rigs, to determine how the money is being used to make new currencies such as Bitcoin.
Bitcoin took over after the recent move to China and is now about 50 percent lower than ever. He shed about 17% on Sunday, before showing any further damage and eventually trading in Asia.

U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell has issued additional funding over the past few weeks, saying Thursday that he was threatening the economic stability and indicated that more legislation could be enacted.
Transition to overseas
Huobi Mall, one of Huobi’s cryptocurrency exchanges, said in a statement on Sunday that all of its deposited businesses were suspended.
“In the meantime, we are in contact with foreign suppliers, to help them find ways to export more in the future,” Huobi Mall said through its Telegraph team, urging customers not to “worry and be patient”.
BTC.TOP, a crypto mining pool, has also announced the suspension of its Chinese business, citing security risks.
Founder Jiang Zhuoer said in a microblog via Weibo that in the future, BTC.TOP will run a crypto mining business in North America.
“In the meantime, almost all of China’s mining equipment will be sold overseas, as Chinese authorities crack down on mining at home,” he wrote.
China has already lost its role as Beijing’s global financial institutions banned crypto currency exchange in 2017.
“Eventually, China will lose the ability to use crypto in foreign markets,” Jiang said, predicting the rise of US and European pools.
HashCow, a crypto mining retailer with 10 mines in China, including Xinjiang and Sichuan and selling electricity to investors, said this was in full compliance with government regulations.
In a statement to customers, HashCow said it had stopped buying new Bitcoin tools, and promised a full refund to investors who ordered the use of computers but had not yet started mining.
Return to change at risk

Bitcoin, Ether and meme like Dogecoin still have huge profits on long frames, as last year – about 12,000% when it comes to Dogecoin.
