The U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce (E&C) announced on Wednesday they sent letters to four crypto mining companies probing their energy consumption. The request follows President Biden signing the Inflation Reduction Act into law, which many think is the biggest legislation to fight climate change. E&C stated that Proof-of-Work based cryptocurrencies “undermine the potential climate benefits of blockchain technology.”
Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase, replied to a tweet on Wednesday asking what Coinbase would do if regulators asked them to censor transactions made to and from sanctioned addresses or shut down the staking and preserve network integrity. The CEO responded he would shut down staking so Coinbase could “focus on the bigger picture” but would attempt to compromise before unstaking. This comes in the wake of Tornado Cash sanctions ordered last week by The U.S. Treasury.
