A Taiwanese Bitcoin Miner nearly paid for his life after being shot at by gangsters for allegedly reneging on a mining deal by not providing payment. The victim went on to blame China and their strict anti-cryptocurrency regime for the lack of available funds.
There are many ways to be a part of the crypto industry. Trading in virtual currencies is an option, as is creating a new digital currency and even contributing to ICOs. Mining is another option. Some companies or individuals may even hire freelance miners and split any subsequent profits between themselves and the miner.
