F2pool will shutdown operations in mainland China by the end of 2021

I wonder if we will see a reduction in hash rate.

Due to the recent development in local regulation, f2pool has previously ceased providing mining pool services in mainland China. We plan to complete the shutdown process to users in China, excluding Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, by 2021-12-31 16:00 UTC. If we detect a user is from mainland China, the account will become inaccessible to the mining pool services within 14 days. Pending payouts will be sent automatically as usual before the deadline. If you have not filled in a payout address, please do so at your earliest convenience before 2021-12-30


Thanks JoeJoe for sharing that.

With all the changes occurring in China, how does this change the pooling landscape? Which will be the best pools to consider sending my newly mined BTC? I will be ASIC mining with Compass on February 2022 and have to select a pool to mine with.
