📃The city of Massena is littered with miners of operators who emigrated from China.


A small town in the state of New York, Massena, located on the border with Canada, evaluates the introduction of a 90-day moratorium on new projects for cryptocurrency mining, the local TV company WWNY-TV reported.


City caretaker Steve O'Shaughnessy complained about sea containers with mining equipment cluttering the streets of Massena.


Despite the fact that Massena is home to about 12,000 people, for many years the city has been a major cryptocurrency center due to cheap hydroelectric power.


In fact, the city is home to the world's largest data processing center with the operation of cryptocurrency, which is managed by the mining company CoinMint, which received permission to open its activities at an abandoned facility back in February 2018.


Now the migration of miners from China has led to the fact that the roadsides of Massena are littered with devices for mining bitcoin.


At the time, O'Shaughnessy hailed CoinMint and the 150 jobs the project had created in the struggling border town.
