Zug, the ground of retrenchment ideal
The entrance to Bitmain in Switzerland comes at a time when the restrictions on the mining operations of Bitcoin in China continues. Indeed, the financial authorities of the country, with the people’s Bank of China at the forefront, seek to reduce the use of energy-intensive mining Bitcoins. Thus, they prohibit the establishment of any favourable policies such as tax exemptions or reduction in the price of electricity. Thus, after having established subsidiaries in the United States, Singapore and Israel, Bitmain has chosen the city of Zug as the next home world of the mining of crypto-currencies, because Switzerland is “one of the countries most progressive in the field, and has a good legal stability,” said a spokesman for Bitmain.
