Yoon tweeted Monday, "Chinese Logistics Firm Airlifting Bitcoin Mining Machines to Maryland." A photo in the tweet appeared to show brown cardboard shipping boxes packed with mining machines ready to be airlifted from China to Baltimore, Maryland.
Thomas Heller, the chief business officer at Compass Mining, told CoinDesk that the weight of the mining machines would equate to about "200 units of S19" units.
The latest crackdown on crypto in China continued last Friday when China's vice-premier Liu He said the government would crack down on bitcoin mining and trading activities, which of course, is something we already knew.
China's constant bombardment of headlines to crush bitcoin comes as the digital yuan reception has been a total disaster.
