Bitmain announces unmatched compensation program to protect BTC miners from volatility

ASIC producer Bitmain will compensate the losses to purchasers of S19J XP flagship mining rigs in case of crypto capitalization dropdowns. Should Bitcoin (BTC) lose 20% or more of its price, Bitmain will disribute $1.89 per every trillion hashes mined by its hardware.

The compensation program will be active for three months upon the purchase of Bitcoin (BTC) mining hardware of the most powerful series.
