Russia could ban cryptocurrency transactions and mining under the proposed new rules

I’m sure it goes without saying but does this mean we can finally get some video cards back in the marketplace for regular people?

No sorry. But Ethereum will transition to proof of stake in June/July, we might get graphics cards then.

Praise jebus!


Maybe it’s more about sending shockwaves through the west, that Kazak outage might have inspired them.


Russia has banned crypto so many times I’ve lost count

and also mining operations on Russian territory
