China's Sichuan energy regulator to gather info on cryptomining - official

SHANGHAI, May 27 (Reuters) - China's Sichuan energy regulator will soon hold a meeting with local power companies to gather information on cryptomining, an official said.

China has vowed to crack down on bitcoin mining and trading, and Sichuan is a big cryptomining province.

The official confirmed the meeting after media reports that the Sichuan Energy Regulatory Office of National Energy Administration will hold a seminar on cryptomining on June 2.
