In the video, it was explained that Motherboard had an entry into a large but secret Bitcoin mine in Rural Northeast China. The mine was designed secretly and is located within a repurposed factory in the Liaoning Province.
One thing about the mine is that the infrastructure put in place allows the full functioning of Bitcoin’s decentralized network. Through this, there is a huge profit for its operators than most operators in a normal mine will earn.
However, it was reported that, that was only 1 of sites out of the 6 sites owned by a secretive group consisting of 4 individuals coming together as a group. According to what Motherboard was told as of the visit, one mine makes 4,050 BTC in a month which was almost equivalent to $1.5 million then, now calculate in present date and see how one site out of 4 is making enough to feed a whole country.
