Bitmain Chief Financial Officer Liao Liu by has been arrested by Beijing police for participating in an attack against former Bitmain CEO Micree Zhan.
Last year, Zhan left his post as CEO of the mining company producer without any notice. Bitmain Co-founder Jihan Wu took his place.
According to the official email that was shared among the Bitmain staff, the executive director of Bitmain Jihan Wu decided to dissolve all the roles of Zhan.
In an attempt to regain control of the mining company and restore his position, Zhan filed several lawsuits in court, but the hearing scheduled for February 11 did not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic outrage.
According to Primitive Crypto representative Dovey Wan, Zhan got a Bitmain license from the Beijing Municipal Administration of Industry and Commerce as the legal representative.
