  • On Thursday, TorrentFreak reported that Epic Games is suing a player who distributed Bitcoin mining code to unsuspecting users who thought they were downloading cheats for the popular free-to-play game Fortnite.

  • To that end, Xinping is also expected to focus on strengthening the party’s grip over significant swaths of the economy, including industries like energy, banking and telecommunication industries.
  • The government hopes to “coax” additional capital investment — that is things like plants, infrastructure and real estate — into the economy from private players.
  • But if you look across global markets, you can see that capital doesn’t necessarily want to cooperate, and in fact, appears eager to slip the grip of the party.
