Despite economic challenges, Russia is experiencing a boom in the Bitcoin mining sector. This growth coincides with international sanctions imposed on Russia following its invasion of Ukraine. While the sanctions don’t explicitly ban mining, they pose significant risks for companies in Russia’s mining sector. However, the rising price of Bitcoin and favorable conditions created by the Ordinals project have made Russia an attractive destination for mining operations. Low energy costs and increased regulatory scrutiny and taxation in other countries have further incentivized Russian miners to expand their operations.
