Bitmain employees stole 10 thousand ASICs from Mongolian mining farm
Bitmain Accuses Former Employees of 10 Illegal Movement 000 ASICs Antminer owned by a mining farm in Mongolia.
According to the official announcement, in mid-July, employees seized the S17, T17, and S9 bitcoin mining equipment. Economic losses from theft were incurred not only by the company, but also by the customers, since some of the appropriated devices were bought and only maintained on the farm, but no longer actually owned by the manufacturer.
Bitmain reports the incident to the police and other law enforcement agencies.
The founder of the company Mikri Ketuan Zhang on the Weibo microblogging accused his former partner and founder Jihan Wu of involvement in the movement of equipment..
It looks like the power struggle at Bitmain that began last year not only continues to gain momentum, but also begins to negatively affect the image of the Chinese giant.
