New York Governor’s Office Signs a Moratorium on Crypto Mining
New York Governor’s Office signs a moratorium on crypto mining. New York Governor Kathy Hochul has approved legislation that would force a moratorium on POW mining in the state. The law imposes a two-year suspension on the issuance of new licenses for mining companies that appear to rely on carbon-based energy to operate.
Hochul signed a moratorium on PoW mining
According to reports, the New York Senate already passed the law in June. However, Kathy hasn’t signed up due to corporate pressure. In a statement November 22, Hochul said that he will ensure that New York remains the primary center of finance while at the same time making great efforts to bring environmental protection.
