The Massena Town Council is discussing code changes that would address crypto currency mining. Blockchain Industries, a cryptocurrency mining firm, approached the board last month and asked if they could buy land in the town to build a cryptocurrency mine. The new business could provide a possible jobs locally. In nearby Plattsburgh, city officials have put a temporary ban on cryptocurrency mining following complaints that miners are using up too much low-cost electricity running high-powered computers. Plattsburgh put an 18-month moratorium on cryptocurrency mining.
