Core Scientific Wants to Sell Bitmain Vouchers for $6 Million
Core Scientific, a now-defunct Bitcoin mining operation, reported an application in emergence on January 25.

Under no circumstances are they eligible to be exchanged with Bitmain for a currency that is backed by the government.
Crypto Winter Impacts The Cryptocurrency Miners As Per Core Scientific
The amount of S19 miners available to sell on the secondary market increased as a result of the crypto winter. This led to a decline in pricing, which caused a decrease in the overall value of the cryptocurrency.
Recent transactions on the Coupon Exchange involving S19 Miner coupons occurred at prices from 15%-25% of the face value of the coupon. You only have the option to redeem the coupons for S19 devices.
The hash rate output is quite low in comparison to the current models that Bitmain has introduced. This limitation is placed on each and every one of the coupons.
The company pointed out that the debtors do not believe in using liquidated funds to purchase S19 miners is the optimal utilization of their resources. Not even with the availability of the Bitmain Coupons.
This statement was made in response to the fact that the Bitmain Coupons are currently in circulation.
