Investigations by the concerned authorities have been initiated against both crypto mining rigs’ developers.
As a result of the investigations both developers have been facing hardships and showing negative progress. For instance, the value of stocks of Ebang took a nosedive when there an apparent decline recorded in stocks’ value at about 20%. Though stocks had lost 20% value in two weeks, however, the second drop was witnessed on 12th April wherein a further 5% decrease was seen.
Similarly, when Canaan filed its annual report, the authorities pointed out several discrepancies. One discrepancy, which was apparently major, was reported in the records relating to Canaan’s revenue collection. The authorities raised allegations that the company had deliberately concealed its end 2020 quarter’s revenue collection. The authorities further pointed out that the records showed positive revenue collection for the three quarters. Similarly, there are valid reasons which make the allegation stronger that Canaan is not disclosing exact figures of revenues.
Meanwhile, Bitmain has reportedly impleaded MicroBT in a lawsuit on the allegations of violation of intellectual property rights. It was alleged in the lawsuit by Bitmain that on two occasions MicroBT infringed Bitmain’s intellectual property rights. Hence, Bitmain was left with no other option but to seek relief against the infringer through a court filing, said Bitmain.
In addition on Chinese grounds, Filecoin has been accused of aiding and abetting the digital industry against Government policies.

Meanwhile, in China, another crypto law is soon to be made public and implemented in the month of May this year. As per the new laws, no company would be allowed to raise capital or even initiate fundraising campaigns with regard to crypto.
