MINSK, 26 February (BelTA) – Cryptocurrency mining possibilities are under consideration in Belarus, BelTA learned from Belarusian Energy Minister Viktor Karankevich on 26 February.

The official said: “Cryptocurrency mining rapidly develops all over the world. China is the main leader in terms of construction of mining pools. It accounts for about 65% of the bitcoin network mining capacity. This industry is developing in other countries, too – the USA, Canada, Russia. It is a new direction for us for now. It is quite interesting but in order to start doing it, we have to study the matter from every angle, including the possible risks this kind of activity involves.”
