U.S. Based Crypto Miners Reap the Benefits of Supportive Regulations

NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chinese government's crackdown on cryptocurrencies is once again in the news. According to CNN, Chinese government agencies including the country's securities regulator and the People's Bank of China (PBOC) said in a statement on Friday that all cryptocurrency-related business activities are illegal and promised to punish illicit activities involving digital currencies. The first stages of the crackdown have already caused many crypto miners to leave China and set up operations elsewhere. In fact, Texas seems to be one of such desired destination. BBC reports that Governor of Texas Greg Abbott has been a vocal supporter for cryptocurrency. "It's happening! Texas will be the crypto leader," he tweeted in June. In the same month, Texas became the second U.S. state after Wyoming to recognize blockchain and cryptocurrency in its commercial law, paving the way for crypto businesses to operate in the state.
