So some cloud mining providers have made the claim that they are selling freshly minted coins to mixers at a markup. Does this actually make sense? I can see several issues on that front (legality, scale required for solo mining, etc). Will mixers even pay a mark-up for the bitcoin or are they less concerned with cleanliness and more concerned with attribution?
I’d love to hear anyone’s thoughts, especially since it could be a way to increase GHX pool proceeds at some point (barring any of the above or other problems).
