Consolidating the Power of Crypto Mining

A government body under the President of Uzbekistan, the National Agency for Project Management (NAPM), revealed this week the 2020 plan for regulation of crypto trade and implementation of blockchain technology. In a press conference on Monday, the agency stated that the proposed mining pool would help consolidate the capacity of domestic and foreign miners at the national level.
