Fraudulent use of “Bitmain” by Mangocoin (MGC)

We have recently become aware of the fraudulent use of the “Bitmain” brand in the sale of a product named “Bitmain Cloud Miner” and its use in the promotion of “Mangocoin (MGC)” on its website, APP and software. In this regard, we’d like to clarify the following:

1. “Mangocoin (MGC)” and its website, APP, social media accounts, WeChat groups, QQ groups, etc. are not business channels or platforms of Bitmain, and these have no connection or affiliation with us whatsoever.

2. The “Bitmain Cloud Miner” on any platform of “Mangocoin (MGC)” is not developed by Bitmain.

3. For the fraudulent use of the “Bitmain” brand and any imposters, we will resolutely adopt legal means to protect ourselves and our customers’ rights and interests.

4. We would like to remind our existing and potential customers to correctly identify the service provider when purchasing products, to sign up for or purchase anything online only after careful deliberation and stay alert to misleading promotions, illegal fund-raising, fraud and other malicious activities on the internet.

When some of these activities catch our attention, we inform the public about them through our blog, where there is section dedicated to such announcements. If you would like to report any such activities to us, please leave us a message here.

Infringement Announcement

Gigawatt Bitmain Brand Infringement

Bitmain Trademark Infringement

Recently, Bitmain Technologies Limited (“the Company”, “we” or “us”) noticed that Giga Watt has stated on the website of https://cryptonomos.com/wtt/#/about (the “ICO Website”) that “Giga Watt is the first official Bitmain hosting facility, and also the first Bitmain service center in the USA” and that Giga Watt is “Bitmain-Powered” and “the first Bitman service center in the USA” (the “ICO Unauthorized Statements”).

We also noticed that Giga Watt has stated on the website of https://giga-watt.com/#/ (together with the ICO Website, the “Websites”) that Giga Watt is “Bitmain-Powered” and that Mr. WU Jihan is the Chairman of Giga Watt (together with the ICO Unauthorized Statements, the “Unauthorized Statements”). We also noticed that our registered trademark, “BITMAIN,” is used on these Websites.

We hereby declare as follows:

We have never authorized and will not authorize Giga Watt as our official hosting facility or our service center in the USA. We have never supported and will not support Giga Watt’s ICO. We have never authorized and will not authorize Giga Watt to use our BITMAIN trademark in any circumstances. Mr. WU Jihan has never been and will not be a member of Giga Watt team.

We believe that it is clear that Giga Watt’s Unauthorized Statements and unauthorized use of the BITMAIN trademark is intended to confuse and misdirect investors. We also believe that such activities are unlawful and constitute intentional trademark infringement to us by Giga Watt. We require Giga Watt to cease the Unauthorized Statements and the infringement of our BITMAIN trademark, and to issue an official public apology to us by January 19, 2017. Otherwise, we will take all necessary legal actions to seek remedies.

This announcement is made without prejudice to the Company’s rights and claims, all of which are expressly reserved.
