Kazakhstan intends to attract investments of $ 700 million in the cryptocurrency mining sector
In June, Kazakhstan approved amendments to the legislation defining the principles of regulation and taxation of the cryptocurrency mining sector. Miners are expected to help bolster the country’s economy with a surplus of relatively cheap electricity and reduce its dependence on oil sales.
Musin said that 13 mining farms are already operating in Kazakhstan, and four more are under construction.
“Over 80 billion tenge ($ 190 million) has been invested in this sector,” he said. “Today we have preliminary agreements to attract investments in the amount of 300 billion tenge.”
As noted by Reuters, local laws allow mining “asset-backed cryptocurrencies and prohibit working with unsecured cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.”
