Venezuela Bans Crypto Mining From Public Housing
Crypto mining can harm the country’s electricity distribution, says a
Venezuelan minister.

Venezuelan Minister of Habitat and Housing Ildemaro Villarroel announced
today that crypto mining operations won’t be allowed in any state-owned
housing or neighborhoods that are part of the “Gran Misión Vivienda”
project (Great Home Mission).

During an official speech on July 15, Villaroel stated
<https://twitter.com/VTVcanal8/status/1283503232636145667> that any kind
of equipment related to crypto mining is banned in public housing due to
“high power consumption” and for widely “violating” the government’s
electrical supply policy.

Although cryptomining IS energy intensive, I think that is just
the govts *excuse* ..... totalitarians do NOT want the serfs
to make money - they might get uppity, fund a coup ......
and there goes your socialist paradise.

AI systems tend to be much more energy-intensive, but
we see they have not tried to ban any such research or
operations down in the barrio .......
