A common concern during cyclical downturns in bitcoin (BTC) mining is the extent to which miners are selling their BTC holdings, crypto exchange Coinbase (COIN) said in a research report last week.

In times of market upheaval and a falling bitcoin price, margins compress across the board and force more miners to become net sellers, the note said. Given the price drop and the resulting loss of profitability, the financing environment for the mining industry has “shifted materially” since late last year, and raising capital in the public markets has become very difficult, Coinbase said.

Still, even if all newly issued bitcoin were immediately sold onto the market each day, that would equate to only 900 BTC of selling pressure, which represents just 1%-1.5% of total daily volume, it added. A healthier bitcoin derivatives market should allow miners more options in terms of potential hedging strategies, the report added.(CoinDesk)

The Central Bank of Russia will agree to the legalisation of cryptocurrency mining, provided that the proceeds of the activity are converted into legal tender outside of Russia. Ivan Chebeskov, head of the Ministry of Finance's Financial Policy Department, noted that some large cryptocurrency mining companies based in the Russian Federation are also forced to deal with foreign restrictions when withdrawing funds. He suggested that Russia may have to create its own exchange infrastructure to provide liquidity to the industry. However, according to CBR, cryptocurrencies minted by Russian miners should be sold outside their borders and not accumulated in the country. The key is to avoid creating incentives for its subsequent use in domestic payments.


The US Biden administration will release a report on bitcoin mining in August exploring issues related to bitcoin mining, such as noise pollution from mining equipment and the energy efficiency of different consensus mechanisms. If bitcoin mining is to be part of our financial system in any meaningful way, it is important that it develops responsibly and minimises total emissions," said Costa Samaras, Principal Assistant Director for Energy in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. When we think about digital assets, it should be a dialogue between climate and energy.

The United States has urged Japan to put more pressure on cryptocurrency exchanges and mining companies that continue to work with Russians. The U.S. wants the Japanese entities to end their business relations with Russia, thus adding to its financial isolation from the rest of the world.

The request, made by American diplomats, is targeting several of Japan’s more than 30 licensed crypto trading platforms that are still present in the Russian Federation, the Financial Times revealed in an article on Friday, quoting people familiar with the matter.

The U.S. representatives told Tokyo to focus on halting crypto mining operations with Japanese participation in the Siberian Irkutsk Oblast, two knowledgeable sources said. The region is known as Russia’s mining capital as it offers cheap hydroelectric power and a cool climate.

Other unidentified individuals, close to three exchanges, told the business daily that Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) responded by renewing demands for the coin trading platforms to cut any remaining relationships with Russia.

According to analysis by Chart Today on Crypto Quant, there is significant decrease in Bitcoin miner reserves in the past two weeks. This could be an indication of dwindling trust in a price reversal despite an upward curve in Bitcoin price this week. Data revealed that there was a decrease by around 4,300 Bitcoin in the last two weeks, hinting at hedged positions against price fall.

The overall trend in Bitcoin mining community appears to be around transferring assets to the derivatives market. This is perhaps a clear signal towards anticipation of a further drop in Bitcoin price.

In addition, Glassnode's research found that Bitcoin miners are distributing Bitcoin from their reserves. The revenues from Bitcoin mining are said to be down 56% since the all time highs. Also, the cost of producing Bitcoin increased by 132%, making things even worse for the miner community.(Coin Gape)
