This Week in Mining: February 10th

A few updates this week in the world of mining:
  1. As we approach the Bitcoin halvening, the mining industry is under pressure from both the uncertainty inherent to such a seminal event as well as the rising costs of doing business. Coindesk published a story detailing US-based mining firm Coinmint’s internal struggles as a result of these factors
  2. Dragonfly Capital released an interesting breakdown explaining why exchanges continue to list small-cap coins like Bitcoin Gold (BTG) in spite of 51% attacks. (Spoiler: They’re still profitable)
  3. Ukrainian authorities issued a positive statement regarding the regulation of miners in the country, stating that mining doesn’t require regulatory activity from government oversight bodies.
