Planned regulation of cryptocurrencies, in particular a ban on bitcoin

Question for written answer  E-000809/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Christine Anderson (ID)

S&D, Green and Left representatives on the ECON committee have raised the issue of a ban on bitcoin[1]. In support of this, they cite the high power consumption of the proof-of-work process on which bitcoin is based.

The Commission, too, has already signalled in a reply to me[2] that it is looking into the energy consumption of bitcoin.
