China has decided to tighten cryptocurrencies to curb speculative trading, shutting down several mining operations in Sichuan province in southwest China, known to be the cradle of many miners. It is estimated that the closures will lead to a 90% reduction in Bitcoin mining in the Chinese area. Following this decision, the global cryptocurrency market showed signs of weakening which confirmed the downward trend.
China stops mining cryptocurrencies

Since June 20, many mining operations have been closed after local authorities ordered the mining of cryptocurrencies to be stopped. The decision follows that of the Chinese State Council which at the national level had expressed itself in May for the reduction of mining activities with these words: “Bitcoin mining and its commercial practices must be repressed and the transmission of individual risks to the sector must be prevented. social.” China has therefore expressed concern about the speculative trading of cryptocurrencies that could contaminate and be a risk for the real economy.

The notice issued by the Sichuan authorities on Friday leaves no room for doubt about the toughness to be applied to cryptocurrencies, as it has ordered local electricity companies to “check, finish and reclaim” the 26 reported mining activities by Sunday.

Chinese miners had already been hit in the northern areas of the nation and with the closure of those of Sichuan, in the southwest, it is expected that bitcoin mining will be closed for a total of 90%.

♬ Marshmello x Jonas Brothers – Leave Before You Love Me

After the success of some singles that have become summer hits, including “Be Kind” (with Halsey) this other beautiful single is released for summer 2021.

Leave Before You Love Me” is a song by American record producer Marshmello and American group Jonas Brothers. It was released as a single on May 21, 2021. Produced by Marshmello and co-produced by Alesso, Digital Farm Animals, and Heavy Mellow, the three producers wrote the song alongside Geoff Morrow, Richard Boardman and Pablo Bowman of the songwriting collective The Six, Christian Arnold, David Martin, Phil Plested, and Will Vaughan.

The song is a “sweet hooky pop ballad” that features “handclaps, a groove and the type of vibe that should break hearts all over the globe”. The song was announced on May 20, 2021, one day prior to the release of the song, in which a snippet of the song would be able to be heard if the song is pre-saved.

A lyric video was published to the Jonas Brothers YouTube channel on the same day as its release.

The official music video of the song was released to Marshmello’s YouTube channel on May 24, 2021. He and the Jonas Brothers perform in a subway and on a roof at night. The visuals open with Nick from the brother band sitting alone on a subway train before he joins his bandmates/brothers and Marshmello on the subway platform and later on a roof. He and his older brother Joe sing about regret and moving on before further heartbreak ensues.

Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers performed the song at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards on May 23, 2021, two days after the song’s release. The band also performed “Sucker“, “Only Human“, “Remember This”, and “What a Man Gotta Do“.

LYRIC

I see you calling
I didn’t wanna leave you like that
It’s five in the morning, yeah, yeah
A hundred on the dash’Cause my wheels are rolling
Ain’t taking my foot off the gas
And it only took the one night
To see the end of the line
Staring deep in your eyes, eyesDancing on the edge, ’bout to take it too far
It’s messing with my head, how I mess with your heart
If you wake up in your bed, alone in the dark
I’m sorry, gotta leave before you love meAy, ay, leave before you love me
Ay, ay, leave before you love me
Ay, ay, leave before you love me
Ay, ay, leave before you love meI’m so good at knowing
Of when to leave the party behind
Don’t care if they notice, yeah, yeah, no
I’ll just catch a rideI’d rather be lonely, yeah
Than wrapped around your body too tight
Yeah, I’m the type to get naked
Won’t give my heart up for breaking
‘Cause I’m too gone to be stayin’, staying’ (dancing on)Dancing on the edge, ’bout to take it too far
It’s messing with my head, how I mess with your heart
If you wake up in your bed, alone in the dark
I’m sorry, gotta leave before you love meAy, ay, leave before you love me
Ay, ay, leave before you love me
Ay, ay, leave before you love me
Ay, ay, leave before you love meDancing on the edge, take it too far
Messing with my head, how I mess with your heart
I’m sorry, alone in the dark
I’m sorry
Ay, ay, leave before you love me
