Genesis Mining Voids All Unprofitable Contracts, Deploys Radiant Tech Amid Bitcoin Decline

Genesis Mining Crypto Cloud Provider Drops Unprofitable Clients As Bitcoin Price Declines, Moves to Radiant Tech

Genesis Mining, a popular cloud-based cryptocurrency mining service, is giving up on its low tier Bitcoin mining contracts. According to the company, these contracts have not been profitable anymore after the price of Bitcoin fell, so they have become pointless.

On a blog post, Genesis Mining stated that it will not continue to support its lower tier clients. The downward trend in the Bitcoin market has made it unprofitable for the company to continue to support these contracts, it claims. Combine this with the rising difficulty in mining since April and there is simply no profits for the company anymore.

Low Tier Contracts Will Be Terminated

As a result of all these factors, Genesis Mining decided to terminate its low tier Bitcoin mining contracts because some contracts are now mining less than the maintenance fees. Because of this, the company will grant a grace period of 60 days for clients and then open contracts will be terminated for good.

This is not a surprise for anyone who actually read the FAQ of the mining company before it invested in it. A section states that the client agrees when signing the contract that, as soon as the gains of the company start to be higher than the maintenance fees, a 60-day grace period will be given to the clients and then the contracts will be finished.

After the period of 60 days starts, the company will watch the market and determine whether it is still profitable to keep mining or not according to future events that will happen during this time span.

Other Companies Experience Similar Problems

Some other companies have been facing similar problems lately. One of them is HashFlare, the main competitor of Genesis Mining. HashFlare has started to terminate unprofitable Bitcoin contracts last month (at the time, Genesis Mining was still profiting from them). Litecoin, Ether and Dash contracts remained unaffected, though.

The Bitcoin bear market seems to be affecting all the major mining companies in some way as the prices are not going up as expected during 2018.

Genesis Mining To Offer Discounts For Clients Who Want To Upgrade Contracts

However, if you are a Genesis Mining user that does not use a low tier contract, there is no need to be afraid just yet. The company has offered to all its clients whose contracts will be terminated soon the opportunity to get a $105 USD discount if they want to upgrade to the premium service of the company, Radiant.

The company made the announcement on Twitter and it stated that the Radiant program has been helping the company to reduce maintenance fees, so it is offering the discount for the clients willing to upgrade.

There is a catch, however, as you will have to sign a 5-year contract with no opportunity for termination if you decide to move. So, it will be up for the users whether they believe that Bitcoin will still be profitable in the future for such a big commitment or if they simply want to jump off this train right now.
