Mongolia becomes the first Chinese province to fight Bitcoin mining

China's Inner Mongolia Province became the first country in the region to implement coercive measures against heavy Bitcoin mining after the central government called for pressure on Bitcoin mining in the country last week. While the pressure from the Chinese government on crypto trading and mining is not new, industry experts said the measures could go beyond verbal warning this time around Beijing's commitment to support carbon neutrality.
