How did the deputy explain his position? Gorelkin noted that he agrees with the Bank of Russia's position that it is dangerous to give virtual assets the status of the legal tender. However, according to the politician, their mining has already become “a daily source of income” for many Russians.

In such a situation, Gorelkin says, it would be logical to take miners out of the “gray zone.”

“The Irkutsk region could become a pilot region as it has gained the status of the capital of the Russian mining,” the official added.

What had happened before? As was mentioned in mid-November, the LDPR faction announced the preparation of a bill to regulate cryptocurrency mining.
