Bitcoin production is rolling on in China despite Beijing’s strict ban on crypto mining

China was once the world’s biggest crypto mining hub.

Last year Chinese authorities launched a fresh crackdown on crypto, abolishing mining to combat the creation of new digital currency.

Many miners fled to other countries, including the U.S. and Kazakhstan, which borders China.

But now, fresh research from Cambridge shows that Chinese bitcoin mining activity has quickly rebounded.

MiamiCoin crypto lost 88 percent of its value in less than a year

The coin has enjoyed the support of the city’s Mayor Francis X. Suarez, who once said it could lead to a government running the city without citizens paying taxes.

When the project first launched, it was projected to succeed as the city’s mayor received a grant for over $5 million.

“I don’t know whether it’s going to work,” he says as the coin’s value dropped to around four-tenths of a cent.

Now it sits at $0.0044, down more than 88 per cent as reported by OkCoin–the only exchange that supports trading for the coin.

He also launched the N.Y.C. Coin project, which has already shed around 98 per cent of its value.
