Development of Chinese Mining Facilities Stopped by Coronavirus Outbreak

The coronavirus outbreak has led the logistics and manufacturing businesses in China to delay their activity, so mining facilities couldn’t expand or make upgrades. As a matter of fact, data from reveals that the difficulty of mining for BTC has been stagnated for almost a now, staying at the same level since January 28.

However, the BTC halving is approaching, so the mining rewards on the network will be reduced from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC per block, which means AntMiner S9s and other older mining machines will no longer be profitable if BTC prices don’t greatly increase. As a result, miners will need to make an upgrade to their mining equipment, or consider dropping out of BTC mining altogether.
