This court order was plain and simple: BCause Mining was to effective immediately, shut down all of its ongoing operations and layoff the 27 full-time and 4 part-time employees.

In the beginning of the year, the now-defunct crypto mining company received a $500K grant from the city of Virginia Beach. The funds were supposed to be used for expansion and relocation to a locally rented warehouse.

The company even pledged to invest the incredible $60 million in the grand expansion, which if true, would have turned BCause into the largest crypto mining operation in North America.
