The power consumption by the cryptocurrency mining facilities has become a crucial area of concern for the authorities across the world. The move was followed by the decision of the Norwegian administration to cease a powerhouse enjoyed by bitcoin miners.
The authorities of Abkhazia further explained a measure approved at the end of 2018. They further said that it was necessary to ensure the power supply for social institutions, important production farms, and homes.

Major Area of Concern
 Chernomorenergo said that the miners have followed the recently issued government orders to bound their electricity consumption.
However, in summer, the crypto mining farms use the power produced by a large hydro-power house located on the de facto border also shared with Georgia. The smaller[b] Vardnili plant [/b]along with the[b] Enguri hydroelectric station [/b]satisfies most of the country’s needs for power.

As per the analysis, the whole power consumption of Georgia reached 1,116 million kWh by March 2018. In that total power consumption, Azbakhia consumed 19% of the electricity.  
Abkhazia much like its neighboring [b]Georgia[/b] and other countries in the[b] Transcaucasian region[/b] experienced a swift development in the crypto mining space. It was possibly because of the low working costs and lack of strict laws. That also includes cheap electricity which is a major amount in the energy-intensive process of mining crypto coins.
The authorities of Abkhazia’s capital [b]Sukhumi[/b] has identified the need to legislate the growing activities of crypto mining businesses. [b]Raul Khajimba[/b], the president of Abkhazia recently scheduled a meeting to discuss the formation of new regulation. This new regulation will legitimize the industry and will also place it under state supervision.

The crypto miners in the country as of now played a positive role. Their crypto mining farms are usually located on the sites of abandoned firms from Soviet times. Just like many other firms and countries in the post-Soviet era now has a chance to obtain fresh foreign investments. It also has a chance to increase its budget acceptance by inviting more crypto firms and miners.
