The difference is, “who pays”?

A valid public protest will have no single ‘victim’.

The differentiating factor is not whether its a single entity, but rather the public interest of the protest. Protesting against your ex-girlfriend has no public interest, while protesting against a corrupted official or a polluting company has.

Bitmain are definitely in a position where protesting against them has significant public interest.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
