According to Zhang, countries such as the United States, Russia and Kazakhstan have begun to contribute to the bitcoin mining industry. Despite the activity in this direction, they are still inferior to China in the distribution of the bitcoin hashrate..
The total indicators of the three countries so far hover at around 6-7% of the total hash rate of the cryptocurrency, Zhang notes..
Although the gap is large, these markets show great potential.
“North America, for example, has proven to be price competitive when it comes to cheap electricity, Texas comes to mind, where electricity costs less than $ 0.02,” he writes..
However, countries will have to work hard to displace China from the leading position in the cryptocurrency market..
According to the Center for Alternative Finance at the University of Cambridge, about 65% of the world’s bitcoin hashrate is still in China. In order for the country not to lose this status, the authorities need to be more loyal to mining and create acceptable conditions for doing business..
Thus, Zhang comments on the recent restrictions on miners from Yunnan province. As reported by the editorial staff of BeInCrypto, in early December, the regional authorities decided to disconnect the mining farms from electricity in order to save.
Recall that Yunnan is in third place in the activity of cryptocurrency miners in China after Sichuan and Xinjiang.
In the meantime, Russia does not see the need to create a national mining pool.
The editorial staff of BeInCrypto previously reported that the Russian Association of Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain (RAKIB) doubts the regulator’s understanding of the essence of the concept of the National Mining Pool (NMP). The Central Bank of the Russian Federation believes that the IMA is unable to resist the laundering of proceeds from crime and the financing of terrorism.
RACIB President Yuri Pripachkin notes that the motives and arguments of the country’s regulator “have nothing to do” with the IMA.
Despite the lack of a unified position on IMP, Russia has a chance to take a leading position in the bitcoin mining market. This is the conclusion reached by researchers at Xangle Research. The Russian market is reported to have a number of advantages, including a climate suitable for installing equipment, cheap electricity and free land..
