Crypto Industry News:
Kyrgyzstan cut off the power to 45 cryptocurrency mining companies because they consumed more energy than a total of three local regions. Senior Energy Officer Aitmamat Nazarov warned that mining cryptocurrencies are not defined by Kyrgyz law, according to a local news agency.
According to Nazarov, 45 cryptocurrency miners consumed 136 megawatts of electricity, which is more than the amount consumed by three Kyrgyzstan regions: Issyk-Kul, Talas and Naryn. Kyrgyzstan has become a popular destination for global mining companies due to low energy prices.
In August, the country’s Ministry of Economy submitted a bill to introduce taxation on cryptocurrency mining – a move to increase revenues. Cryptocurrencies were banned in Kyrgyzstan in July 2014 after a national bank warned that using Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as a payment method is illegal.
Iran, which also cuts off electricity to local mining companies, has proposed the annual registration of cryptographic miners to regulate the industry.
