Taiwan’s newspaper, Liberty Times Net, has reported that two people shot a bitcoin miner when he refused to fulfill their original contract. Suspects Gao Qitang and Chen Yumin shot Wu Nan (nicknamed “milk”) at the Longhua Hall in Banqiao, New Taipei City on Apr. 14.

Under their agreement, Gao and Chen, both members of the ‘Freshwater gang’, raised 47 million new Taiwan dollar and allowed Wu to invest it in mining bitcoin. Wu was supposed to give them the profit, which he claimed was difficult since China banned cryptocurrency exchanges and ICOs. Once the argument got out of hand, both gangsters pulled out guns, a Beretta and a Taurus, and fired seven shots at Wu who ended up being injured.

Nowadays, it is not unusual for people to hire miners and then divide the profits at the end of the job. Mining freelancers are especially in demand, although most people prefer joining mining pools.
