A lot of crypto-miners are going offline for a variety of reasons, and a few are making the switch to offline mining.
The latest is the Bitcoin wallet provider Cryptogames, which has shut down all of its online services in the last week.
The company’s parent company, Cryptogame Entertainment, said it shut down its online service in March.
The shutdown comes a month after Cryptogamas announced it would no longer be accepting payments through its website.
The Cryptogaming website, which had been available since the end of May, said the shutdown came after a “significant security breach” that compromised a “large amount of customer data.”
Cryptogams official statement was made on Tuesday, and the company announced a new website will be open for business “in the coming days.”
It’s unclear whether the Cryptogamings shutdown is related to the recent hack of its payment processor.
Bitcoin’s price has continued to decline, which could also be related to Cryptogomes shutdown.
According to the Bitcoin news site CoinDesk, the company said it “cannot confirm that the breach was connected to the hack.”
However, the announcement didn’t mention whether Cryptogamer’s shutdown is connected to Bitcoin itself, which lost some of its popularity after it was revealed that it would become the default payment option for all merchants and retailers after Bitcoin’s popularity began to decline.
Cryptogames did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
