No materials have been recovered and out of 11 arrests related to the investigation, local police are only keeping two suspects in custody.

Favorable electricity prices in Iceland have set the island up to be one of the first regions where power consumption for Bitcoin mining exceeds power consumption for other purposes.

Latest Bitcoin Network Difficulty Adjustment: Up ~19.58 Percent To New All Time High As Chicoms Push Out Local fiat/Bitcoin Trading Interfaces

Mining difficulty on the Bitcoin network skyrocketed nearly twenty  percentage points to 1103400932964.29248047 from 922724699725.96276855 to a new all time high.

While mining difficulty sits at an all time high, the price of Bitcoin reported by fiat/Bitcoin interfaces is sitting roughly twenty percent below the most recent all time high established near the beginning of this month. The United States dollar recovered a small bit of ground against Bitcoin when the racist government of the People's Republic of China decided to ban trading on their local fiat/Bitcoin interfaces. This move by the Chicoms was followed by the a constant stream of "Bitcoin is valueless" editorials in the legacy USian "financial" fake news press.

Bitcoin Network Mining Difficulty Up ~3.9% To New All Time High

This is ever so slightly above the previous all time high of 923233068448.90527344 set in the first difficulty adjustment following the schism of a Roger Ver-ified altcoin away from the Blockchain. The continued efforts propping up the Roger Ver-ified chain is proving to be a very expensive proposition for the involved fiat interests.

Aside from typical variance, the possibility of some hashpower  inflicting woe upon a certain altcoin and heroically repatriating BTC value may have contributed to this small drop in difficulty.
