    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.
