Moreover, it was rumoured that 49% stake in BTCC pool might be sold to financial service provider  Value Convergence Holdings from Hong Kong, but there were no more reports about the deal progress. The contract price could be some $17 million.

The company addressed its users with a request to switch their capacities to other pools before the shut-off date. All the profit is said to be paid without delays.

Along with BTCC Pool, the company also run crypto wallet Mobi and trading platform. BTCC exchange is considered to one of the first places to trade crypto. Earlier, it was known as BTC China, but in 2017 suspended business facing restrictions in China. This year the company was acquired by Hong Kong's fund and resumed trading as the new business.
