To be more specific it is Antpool, the subsidiary of Bitmain, A China-based mining enterprise, and ASIC chip manufacturer who is going to sponsor Houston Rockets. In other news, it was notified that Bitmain subsidiary Antpool was accused of artificially boosting Bitcoin cash price. Antpool stated in its website:
“While having active users spending BCH is very important for the ecosystem, having investors who hold BCH is also a fundamental requirement for maintaining a strong economy. Without these holders, BCH’s exchange value loses significant support. We believe that they too should profit from the growth of BCH by their continued stake in the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem. The transaction fees earned by miners are an important growth indicator of the BCH ecosystem, and if a portion of the fees are burnt, it is effectively miners sharing revenue with the entire BCH network”.
It is implied that Bitmain has started in promoting Bitcoin at several levels now, especially after this present endeavor to popularize Bitcoin.
