Avoidable mining moratorium in Montana
The public hearing on the extraction of cryptocurrencies in Montana goes on to the next round while regulators pressured for a one-year moratorium. However, the legal representatives of the mining companies have challenged the ability of local authorities to decree such a moratorium. For now, it seems there is no reason to expect such a moratorium. Instead, the local government is trying to establish official regulation of mining activities. The concerns of many people in Montana are related to energy prices and noise nuisance through the mining platforms. Montana has attracted many mining companies with its low-cost energy prices. As a result, issues related to the mining sector are widespread in the state.

However, the JVCEA still has to determine a fixed percentage for this, but the representatives have talked about 10 – 20% of their customers' cryptographic resources. The JVCEA wants to work closely with the Japanese government to establish a reasonable regulation for the encrypted market.
