This Week in Mining: July 6th

This week, governments continue to “take interest” in mining:
  1. Venezuela’s national guard has seized 315 Bitmain Antminer S9s unregistered with the country’s cryptocurrency authority.
  2. Miners in Iran have been given an order to register their mining rigs with the government. Iranian miners will have one month to submit the details of their operations in an effort to clamp down on off-the-books mining facilities within the country.
