Emin Gün Sirer has been quoted in a Washington Post article on the “mining” of the online currency bitcoin in China. He says in the September 12 article: “Some people in the Western world were painting Chinese miners with too broad a brush. It’s not the case that all Chinese miners are part of the same enterprise or are colluding…They would not be able to usurp funds, but they could stop the motion of funds.”
