Posted September 08, 2018 06:38:53As it happens, the Bitcoin mining rig that was recently spotted mining at a mining farm in China’s Hunan province may be a part of a larger global Bitcoin mining operation.
A number of other Bitcoin mining rigs were also spotted in the same area of the city, according to Chinese media reports.
According to reports, the mining rig was spotted by a worker at a Chinese-owned gold mine in the province of Hunan on Friday.
The worker told state media that he was “stopped” from entering the mining area by police.
He said he then turned to Bitcoin and began mining bitcoin, but was “sabotaged” by a police officer who demanded his ID.
According a Chinese media report, a man with a backpack was also seen at the same mining site, and said he was also stopped from entering.
