Alibaba is tightening its regulatory supervision of mining companies amid China’s ongoing crackdown against cryptocurrencies. The group’s cloud computing subsidiary, Alibaba Cloud has issued a fresh warning to crypto mining firms saying that it would discontinue its services as per recent government-imposed requirements.

Alibaba Cloud to Discontinue to Services for Crypto Miners

The latest development in China’s war against crypto was reported by Chinese crypto-journalist Colin Wu and the 8BTC news portal. 

In a tweet posted to his account, Colin reported that Alibaba Cloud — the second largest provider of cloud computing services in the country — will cancel the domain names and stop server operations for companies involved in crypto mining. The company representatives have cited a change in its regulatory policies in the second quarter of 2021 as the reason behind its decision.

With Alibaba siding with the authorities, crypto miners in the country face an uncertain future. Back in March, China’s Inner Mongolia had banned mining operations in the region, spurring fears that the practice may spread across the country. And just yesterday, the government ordered energy supplying companies in its Sichuan province to stop servicing firms that deal in crypto mining. 

Interestingly, Sichuan is home to some of the largest hydropower projects and generates more electricity than it needs during summer. This means the country would rather waste its surplus energy than allowing it to benefit crypto operations.

The Chinese authorities have implemented similar restrictions in Xinjiang and Qinghai provinces.

Exchanges Will Remain Unaffected By Alibaba’s Decision

As of now, Alibaba Cloud is the only company in its segment to issue an advisory. Tencent Cloud and AWS have expressed no such intentions.

Colin Wu has underlined that the latest restrictions will have no impact on crypto exchanges. This is because most exchanges do not maintain their servers in China.

Meanwhile, many crypto mining companies are exploring opportunities to ship their servers to Texas and Tennessee to keep their lucrative businesses running.

Santiment, a crypto analyzing platform, has recently released a report that says the whales have offloaded a significant amount of Ethereum from crypto exchanges. The report further notes that the $21.3 million shares of the ten largest non-exchange whales have reached a new five-year high this week. 

Santiment Reports Says Whales Withdrew a Record Amount of Ethereum From Crypto Exchanges

The report particularly says that the ten largest over-the-counter Ethereum addresses now control the biggest volume of Ethereum in the last five years. 

As per the researchers, whales hold around 20% of the total supply of Ethereum, as 21.3 million coins were under the control of the whales by the end of last week.

However, on the other hand, the volume of Ethereum placed by whales in exchange wallets on their side has fallen to its lowest level since the year 2015 (4.66 million Ethereum).

Witnessing the outflow trend of ETH outflow which was high for several weeks recently, it should be noted that this has led to a surge in the price of the altcoin.

When the exchange rate of Ethereum reached the mark of $2,360 during the Asian trading, it marked the highest value since July 7. 

ETH Price Hits 3-Week High as Crypto Markets Bounces Back

As all the coins in the market are following the lead of Bitcoin and are surging in their prices, it is inevitable for Ethereum to stand out of the line. 

In accordance with the data released by market data aggregators and exchanges, ETH touched $2,392 on Monday, marking an 8.2% increase over the last 24 hours and around 22% gain over the past 7 days.

Ethereum is considered a potential candidate that has the capability of replacing Bitcoin as per the institutions such as Goldman Sachs.

In terms of the technological advancements, Ethereum is in line for the London upgrade that is about to go live on August 4 and consists of five EIPs, or Ethereum Improvement Proposals.
