(ANSA) - BELGRADE, JAN 6 - Authorities in Kosovo have banned the mining of cryptocurrencies, which requires huge amount of electricity, in order to curb electricity use amidst a severe energy crisis, the BBC reported today. The Kosovo government said "security services will identify and clamp down on sources of cryptocurrency mining," the BBC wrote.
