The cryptocurrency billionaire spoke about some controversies and conspiracies that have surrounded Bitmain. Wu was asked why he decided to invest in bitcoin and he responded saying that he liked the idea and thought it would work.

Wu stated that the company does not sell second-hand mining rigs because if they do, they will not hide the information from the public. He said the company does carry out mining first before selling them as new because this was against their principles. He reiterated that it was just a rumor and stated that they have been transparent from the first day and do not pretend that mining rigs are new.
