City for mining can be built in Russia only after the adoption of the law on the regulation of cryptocurrencies, said RIA Novosti Chairman of the Duma Committee on economic policy, industry, innovative development and entrepreneurship Sergei Zhigarev.

Earlier it was reported that the Deputy of the state Duma Boris Chernyshev was sent to the Ministry of industry and trade and the Ministry of communications a letter with the initiative on the construction of a mining-town which should be located in Siberia or the far East, near the large hydro power plants. This will allow citizens and government to a new source of income, and in the future — to create a competitor to Silicon valley, he said.

Zhigarev ready to support this initiative, but believes that before its implementation it is first necessary to adopt a law regulating the issue and circulation of cryptocurrency. «Cheap electricity at a price is Krasnoyarsk Krai at the expense of hydroelectric power, why not. Only need to, most importantly, the first to adopt a law on cyberslut, and then build some mining-town,» he said.

«In China, there are mining centres, and in Russia it is possible to create, Sberbank they are, so why not make at the state level. But in any case, first take the law is necessary, it should be consistently» — said the head of the Duma Committee.

Liberality impossible to ban because any citizen with Internet access can do its trade and acquisition, said Zhigarev.

«Another issue that need legislation urgently on this issue to accept. Because it’s already there, and this area should be regulated. And the idea — if the world is making, and we need to earn. Why not?» the MP concluded.
