Flooding Impacts Crypto Mining

Categories: Cryptocurrency

China is said to be the global leader in terms of crypto mining operations.  So when reports began surfacing about massive rains, concerns were voiced.  It turns out those concerns were well founded.  All that rain produced floods in the Sichuan province of China and it has been reported that the flooding resulted in heavy damage to that region's crypto mining operation.   This may be significant enough to slow things down in the cryptocurrency world!

Cryptocurrencies and Regulations?

Categories: Cryptocurrencies

The waters are getting much cloudier!

The Central Bank In Bahamas is ready to introduce their own cryptocurrency. As more and more countries and territories introduce their own cryptocurrency, many of the general regulations may become problematic. Outlawing another countries currency of in this case cryptocurrency will likely have huge political ramifications! This is just the latest manifestation of this issue and it will only grow.
