SHANGHAI, June 25 (Reuters) – Bitmain, China’s biggest maker of cryptocurrency mining machines, said it had suspended sales of its products in the spot market to help ease selling pressure on the secondary market following Beijing’s ban on bitcoin mining.

In a statement, Bitmain said it is looking for “quality” power supplies overseas along with its clients.
