New York bans crypto mining

New York has recently announced an upcoming official ban on crypto mining. This decision was made due to the great power resources crypto mining uses, which is not good for the environment. But what are the implications of this decision?

So an official ban on crypto mining has been introduced in New York. Mining crypto causes pollution of the environment and since New York wants to meet its climate goals, mining crypto does not fit in the program.

As you may know, mining is a crucial part of crypto. The Proof-of-Work mechanism ensures that a blockchain such as those of Bitcoin can continue to operate.

Very directly, the ban on mining in New York does not necessarily have a very negative effect on Bitcoin, but it is somewhat worrying. New York is a fairly influential city on a global scale, so it is possible that more major cities will follow suit. If mining is banned in many places, it will become more difficult to make use of the Proof-of-Work mechanism. This would have a negative effect on Bitcoin, but also on other blockchains that use the Proof-of-Work consensus.

New York’s argument that mining has too many negative effects on the environment is, of course, correct. Mining consumes an enormous amount of energy, which is bad for the environment. Fortunately, solutions to this problem are being sought.

Are you not so afraid of regulation that could have a negative effect on Bitcoin? Then you could choose to invest in Bitcoin.
