US government - US government to address the ramifications of cryptocurrencies on Jan 20th -> Tune in hereThe Bitcoin mining sector has piqued the interest of several countries over the last year, and it appears that the United States government is starting to become interested in this market.

As a result, a hearing has been scheduled in the US to explore the ramifications of the energy consumption incurred by cryptocurrency mining operations. Indeed the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy and Commerce will conduct a public hearing on the subject next Thursday, January 20, according to the House Committee.

“The Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy and Commerce will hold a hybrid hearing that includes both in-person and remote attendance on Thursday, January 20, 2022, at 10:30 a.m.”

The investigation is titled “Clearing Cryptocurrency: The Energy Implications of Blockchains,” and in particular, the Subcommittee is interested in learning about the energy consumption of blockchains, with the premise that they may create environmental concerns in the future. On the scheduled day, the hybrid hearing will also live stream on YouTube.
