Factors Contributing to Increase Crypto Mining Activities in Kyrgyzstan 

Kyrgyzstan boasts of multiple hydroelectric power sources connected to the mining sites. However, the power generated from the lakes, rivers and other hydropower plants fails to meet the energy required to mine substantial crypto assets.

 This has forced the Kyrgyzstan crypto miners to combine renewable sources with electricity in mining. Citing the Kyrgyzstan law, the crypto miners are legally allowed to engage in responsible mining activities. 

However, due to the growing demand for electricity in various industries, Kyrgyzstan allows crypto miners to import electricity and regularly pay taxes for importing power. 

For years, the importation of electricity to Kyrgyzstan has met several legal and regulatory hurdles. In a previous interview, crypto miners lamented that occasionally, it’s challenging to import power due to restrictive measures imposed in Asia.
