In a bid to address environmental concerns over proof-of-work (PoW) mining, the New York State Senate has passed a Bill that imposes a two-year moratorium on new crypto mining firms that use non-renewable power.

The Bill, which was passed by the state Assembly last month, also sought pausing of renewables for existing operating permits.

Earlier this year, the European Parliament had proposed a similar PoW mining ban. However, amid public scrutiny, it amended the proposal to remove the ban.
