Alibaba Cloud joins the clampdown on crypto miners

Colin Wu has taken to Twitter to announce another negative piece of news for Chinese crypto miners today.

Earlier, U.Today covered (based on Wu’s report) that Chinese province Sichuan authorities had ordered electricity producing companies to stop servicing mining firms in the area.

This request was made despite the fact that in the summer there is plenty of unspent hydroenergy in the province. Unless it is used by Bitcoin miners, it can only be wasted, Wu tweeted.

Now he reports that Alibaba Cloud has joined this witch hunt for cryptocurrency miners in China.

The company has warned its clients who are involved with the crypto industry that services for them may no longer be provided.

The reason for that, as Alibaba Cloud reps explained to the companies, is that since the second quarter of 2021, regulatory supervision has been tightened.

Crypto exchanges will not be harmed by Alibaba Cloud’s decision

Tencent Cloud and AWS have not made similar notices to cryptocurrency businesses yet.

Colin Wu has tweeted that this decision of Alibaba Cloud will not have much impact on crypto exchanges, since their servers are located outside China.

However, crypto mining companies will have to find another cloud service provider.
