CEO of the Chinese BTCC exchange Bobby Lee announced that their mining pool began signaling the simultaneous support of two solutions for scaling bitcoins - SegWit2x and BIP 91.

In his Twitter message, Bobby Lee reported that more than 90% of the pool servers support the BTC1 protocol (SegWit2x), which was signed by New York in May, and also expressed the hope for the early activation of BIP 91, which is a modified version of SegWit2x.

A few minutes later Bobby clarified that now 100% of the pool's mining capacities are directed both at full support of BTC1 and on the signaling of BIP 91.

According to XBT.eu, currently 83.3% of the last 144 blocks support the BIP 91 protocol.

Tone Vays, business analytic, gave his comment too. According to him, today's rapid rise in the price of bitcoin was a response to the growing support of BIP 91 and, as a result, the increasingly more active activation of the Segregated Witness protocol.

At the same time, as Tone said, Slush Poo hadn't stated the support of BIP 91, which is expected to launch this process during today.

Plouton Mining, a subsidiary of Plouton Group Holding, intends to open the largest Bitcoin farm in North America for mining, whose operations will be provided by solar energy. To this end, the firm chose a territory in the western part of the Mojave Desert, California.

Plouton Mining will place solar panels on 49 acres: they should generate about 10-13 megawatts per day, working for an average of 12 hours. The company stressed that Western Mojave receives sunlight for 70% of the year.

The company will also sign the necessary contracts with local electricity suppliers in order to operate the farm in the absence of solar radiation.
