Bitmain Technologies, a China-based consumer-grade ASIC miner, recently address fraudulent usage of websites Bitmain.farm and Antminersmiling.com. The company reported it discovered some websites that have been impersonating Bitmain and have been communicating with its existing customers under false pretense.
“In order to protect the legitimate rights and interests of our company and customers, our company solemnly declares as follows: Our official website https://www.bitmain.com/ is the only official website of Bitmain. The two websites: https://bitmain.farm/register and https://antminersmining.com/ have no relationship with Bitmain. For the fraudulent use of the “Bitmain” brand, we will resolutely adopt legal means to protect ourselves and our customers’ rights and interests.”
The fraudulent situation comes just a few weeks after Bitmain reduced its staff. It was revealed that although the company is now operating normally and the cashflow is healthy, it launched a “staff optimization plan” at the end of last year.
