It is not secret anymore that Bitmain installs remote kill switches on ASICs.
"Antbleed is a backdoor introduced by Bitmain into the firmware of their bitcoin mining hardware Antminer"https://www.antbleed.com/
Maybe it is for emergency to destroy all ASIC miners they have sold to perform 51% attack easy. Evil as hell
Please, give me some better reason, why they still want to take control (disable) the ASICs they have sold?
"The remote service can then return "false" which will stop the miner from mining."It is like some criminal is pointing gun at your head and in case can easy pull the trigger whenever he wants...
