Bitmain Establishes Branch In Zug, Switzerland

Bitmain Technologies, Beijing-headquartered bitcoin mining machines (ASIC chips) producer, has established a new branch in Zug, Switzerland.

The Chinese company explained it chose the Zug location because Switzerland was "one of the most progressive countries", "with good legal stability" and a skilled workforce. Bitmain says it will employ more employees in Zug in the future and will "actively communicate with self-regulatory organizations (SROs) and the Financial Market Authority (Finma)."

"Bitmain Switzerland will play a key role in our global expansion," the company's spokesperson told the German-language Swiss newspaper Handelszeitung. This is the first foothold in Europe for Bitmain which already has branches in the US, Singapore and Israel. "Now is a good time to build a hub in Europe to provide better services," he proclaimed.

The Chinese bitcoin mining industry might also be motivated to grow beyond their homeland by fear of a possible clampdown.

There are conflicting reports about the position of the Chinese government about such a move against bitcoin mining.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
