China starts to fight home mining and computer saloons

The Chinese authorities have begun to catch small miners among the operators of Internet cafes, game rooms, as well as those who mine cryptocurrencies at home on a home card.

In China, as in the entire region of East Asia, numerous Internet cafes are very popular, where users can play games, paying for a computer by the hour. Such establishments usually have high-performance personal computers with powerful video cards and high-speed processors.

During the quarantine period, such establishments were closed, and their owners switched to mining. The most popular mined currencies are BTC, ETH and other altcoins. Many of them continued to mine cryptocurrency even after the official ban on mining in China. Therefore, the authorities intend to find everyone who is engaged in the extraction of cryptocurrencies clandestinely.

All over the country, inspections of the equipment of Internet cafes are being carried out. Law enforcement agencies are looking for mining software on computers. The found equipment is confiscated.

The authorities also monitor broadband Internet access to find private miners mining cryptocurrencies at home. If such people are found, Internet operators are advised to disconnect them from the network. It is also recommended that providers block mining pool sites.
