Now it seems that the rumours may indeed be true spil leaked notices have bot collective online. They emerge to come from the Internet Financial Risks Remediation Group instructing específico governments to guide miners to make ter making an orderly uitgang from the business.
The document goes on to say that the almacén regulators should use the resources available te the region such spil the electro-stimulation price, land use and taxes te order to gently nudge thesis “mining” related businesses out of the recinto region.
Indeed, concerns about tens unit use wasgoed one of the main reasons that the government is taking activity. It requires a excellent overeenkomst of energy to mine Bitcoin with many environmentalists claiming it unsustainable.
What is the likely result of this stir and how will it affect transactions and the price of Bitcoin?
Updates on Uitgang Process
The government agency also laid out a particular timetable for the almacén agencies about how they should report on progress. They said that the government te the region should submit a report by the 10th of every month outlining the progress that has bot made.

Hope that this wasgoed just a hoax or an anomaly were also straks dispelled spil a separate document wasgoed also leaked with similar instructions for the Película del Oeste region. They were to report progress on the shutdown on the 5th of every month.
The Leading Group of Internet Financial Risks Remediation wasgoed created by the Chinese cabinet ter 2018 spil a means to police online risks. The agency is run by a deputy governor of the Peoples Canap of China (PBOC).
He has previously bot sceptical of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. For example, last year te the wake of the Chinese ICO verbod spil well spil the trading kerkban, he said that he agreed with the decision of the PBOC.
It also seems spil if many of the miners te the country were expecting moves like this at some point. Perhaps this explains that surge ter 2nd forearm mining equipment that wasgoed hitting the international market.

This will no doubt have an influence on the universal hash rate available for the Bitcoin network ter the brief term. China accounts for almost 70% of all the mining hash power te the world. Cheap energy prices were some of the prime reasons for the Chinese mining concentration.
Now that a fine overeenkomst of the miners te the country are likely to go offline, it will mean that hash power may druppel te the brief term. This will likely remain the case until more equipments can come online or thesis Chinese mining companies set up ter other countries.
Spil hash power falls globally, it will mean that the amount of resources available to mine blocks and verify transactions will fall. Hence, transaction speeds are likely to slow further which is unfortunate for an already slow network.
Of course, the genius of the Bitcoin protocol means that spil hashing power decreases, difficulty adjustments take place which make it lighter to mine the coins and verify the transactions again. This, however, only takes place merienda every 2018 blocks which happens toughly every Two weeks.
Of course there are other coerces at play te the sphere of cryptoeconomics. The slower network will mean higher transaction fees which acts spil an incentive for more miners to come on houtvezelplaat. Miners will either switch their machines from mining other coins or they will invest te fresh ASIC miners and build fresh farms.
On the roll side, there are many who think that this will benefit the Bitcoin ecosystem greatly te the long run. There will be less centralisation of mining power te China. This centralisation has often bot viewed spil an existential threat to Bitcoin.
Influence on Price
Te the instant brief term, many are expecting that the price of Bitcoin is likely to take a kasstuk. They see the enhanced transaction toverfee and slow transaction times leading to uncertainty ter the network.
However, spil soon spil the difficulty adjustments are able to take place and more miners come on houtvezelplaat, the price is likely to stabilise. People will be able to send the coins quickly and efficiently again.
Ter the long run, the influence could be a much higher price spil there is more trust te the decentralised nature of the system. Spil less mining is managed by the Chinese miners, there are less malicious actors who may attempt to control the network.
This truly decentralised network wasgoed the true vision of Bitcoin and its creator. A network with many different knots that is truly democratic and totally trustless.
For the meantime, just HODL onto your coins, bite the bullet with higher transaction fees and observe the Bitcoin protocols resilience.
