How to Buy Cryptocurrency in Georgia
Buying cryptocurrency in Georgia
Like so many other banks, the National Bank of Georgia announced that cryptocurrencies arenít legal tender, and, therefore, arenít regulated by law in December 2014. The Bank even advised citizens of Georgia to exercise caution when dealing and trading with cryptocurrencies. In spite of that, Georgia quickly became a hotbed for cryptocurrency mining, with people spending their investments or taking out loans in order to purchase their very own mining setups in hopes of getting rich. Due to low regulation and its cheap hydropower, Georgia was ranked the second country in the world for cryptocurrency mining, first being China. Bitfury, a U.S.-based technology firm, could account for much of this mining activity, from its vast data center equipped with computer serves located on the outskirts of the countryís capital, Tbilisi. Expectedly, it has brought about lots of controversy over declarations that it collected excessively generous terms for its electricity bills.
