Kosovo Finance Minister Hekuran Murati said today that a decision to stop the production of cryptocurrencies in Kosovo is necessary.
According to Kosovo media, Murati stated at a press conference that it is necessary to make a decision in order to save the pockets of citizens.
“It would be very unfair for us as a state to subsidize someone’s profit at the expense of other citizens. Therefore, it was necessary to make this decision to temporarily limit the mining or production of cryptocurrencies in order to save citizens’ pockets,” the minister said.
During this week, the Government of Kosovo announced that the competent institutions will strive to suspend the production of cryptocurrencies, because it is suspected that the equipment with which they are produced causes a large consumption of electricity.
