Georgian Citizens Take Oath to Stop Mining Crypto
In Georgia, electrical supply has been disrupted due to hundreds of residents turning to crypto mining.
A video cited by local media showed miners crowding a church on Dec. 30, 2021, to pledge a holy oath to St. George that they would not mine cryptocurrency. It is believed that such pledges are unbreakable bonds. These pledges will deal with energy shortages blamed on Bitcoin mining. Svaneti is a mountainous region of Georgia that enjoys free electricity in some parts. This has attracted more miners to the region. This scenario is increasingly common around the world. Bitcoin miners have flocked to countries with cheap energy to the annoyance of residents. In the cases of Kosovo and Kazakhstan, the government has banned crypto mining in those regions.
Nevertheless, BTC’s price has continued to fluctuate in the middle of the price range as it risks further decline below $41K. Sellers have pushed the crypto to $41,000 low but BTC price has resumed upward. The upward move is still doubtful as it faces rejection at the recent high. The price action is characterized by small body indecisive candlesticks.
