Paraphrasing cryptographic terms to satisfy the Chinese government
Regional reporter Priishu Garg reported in detail that Xinyuan Technology has invested 580 million yuan, or just over $89 million. In a separate announcement, AI Express said the Shenzhen-based company will launch on the 15th. Mars 2021 has signed a purchase and sale agreement. And according to local journalist Colin Wu, also known as Blockchain Wu, Xinyuan Technology intentionally left out some cryptocurrency terms in its announcement.
When Wu mentioned the takeover, the man said: Oddly, Filecoin is not specifically mentioned. The article mentions the Distributed Storage Center project.
A Chinese journalist responded by saying:
Yes, because the Chinese government doesn’t like words like coin or crypto.
Xinyuan Technology’s investment in Philecon Miners is the result of a partnership with Jiangxi-based electronics company Sesumg. Prieshu Garg said Sesumg will supply the company with 500 units of computer equipment and 100 units of memory equipment.
The recent demand for Filecoin also stems from a recent announcement by Grayscale Investments, which announced the launch of five new trusts, including a Filecoin Fund (FIL). Since the announcement of the grey scale, the market prices of FIL have increased considerably.
