Ecological cryptocurrency, which will be based on green technologies and will be similar to bitcoin, I suggest to create the onf, the press service of the organization.

This initiative was made at the youth forum «Tavrida» in the Crimea, the coordinator of the onf project «General cleaning» Dmitry Mironov.

«We will prepare the proposal to consolidate in the legal framework of the concept of «cryptocurrency», «mining», and we also offer you to create a new cryptocurrency, which will be provided with «green» technology. I believe that such an initiative should be made on the legislative level, so it was enshrined in the legal field, becoming a legal cryptocurrency. Provided it is not just any generated power, namely kilowattage «green energy,» said Mironov, quoted by the press service of the onf.

According to him, such a currency could become «environmentally friendly» analogy of bitcoin. Mironov noted that cryptocurrency today is an objective reality that already penetrates all aspects, and its prohibitions can not be effective. In this case, cryptocurrency, like any new technology has its own specifics. According to him, one of the negative aspects of bitcoin, is the fact that he provided the spent electricity. Explain that today the creation of bitcoins spent so much electricity, which would be enough to heat one billion homes, which causes great harm to the environment.

The creation of ecological cryptocurrency could become, in his opinion, the domestic competitor to bitcoin, yet be the impetus for the development of «green energy» not only in Russia but throughout the world.

In Russia and in the world in recent time has seen a rapid growth of interest in cryptocurrencies, and the cost of the most famous of them — bitcoin — this year has repeatedly hit record highs. Many countries have opened their markets to cryptocurrencies, however, the Russian authorities are wary of this issue. The head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina said that the Bank of Russia intends first to examine thoroughly the principles of the cryptocurrency and then introduce their regulation, which depends on whether to consider them simply as a digital asset or account of their monetary character.
