Virtual Mining Corp was a company run by an individual who made claims to several ASIC hardware developments and sought investment by common members of the public.

Many of their claims were refuted. By the 6th of February 2015, the State of Missouri had found “Multiple Violations of Offering and Selling Unregistered, Non-Exempt Securities” in relation to the investments sought for VMC, AMC (Active Mining Corporation), and ActM (Virtual ActiveMining).
