First of all, to me, as I am Russian. it all sounds fishy AF.
There are some regulations to be made regarding the cryptocurrencies and the mining operations in Russia. Our government is thinking about licensing the mining farms and therefore taxing them accordingly. Until then, all crypto business could not operate in Russia (except, maybe a couple of blockchain startups that are under the hood of Skolkovo (Government-funded innovation agency)).
Second, I don’t think that this business would be sustainable. In 2016 some German firm installed the BTMs in a couple of key Russian cities (I believe it was Saint-Petersburg and Moscow). They were all taken down by our law enforcers without further notice. And we don’t have any BTMs ever since.
Third, Moscow is not the place where I would put up the mining farm as the prices of electricity are not cheap there. Again, our G-men are planning to build special zones somewhere in Siberia specially for foreign crypto-mining businesses. As the prices of electricity and cool area would be much more suitable for such a business.
So… It’s your money, guys. Do whatever… But be careful Investing in some business.
