Icelandic crypto industry is planning on leaving crypto mining behind and switching to a new ‘’pure blockchain business’’. This crypto news comes right after the chairman of Reykjavik-based Borealis Data center told a local news site that crypto and blockchain businesses are not so focused on bitcoin mining anymore.
Jörgensson believes that the craziness hovering over bitcoin mining has declined and it’s a lot less popular than it was a year ago when the prices reached incredible highs. Now, since the prices are all stabilizing, he believes that bitcoin mining contributed to a lot faster growth of local energy and industries are expected to show a boost to blockchain-related businesses.
Iceland is one of the world’s leaders in crypto mining because there are fantastic conditions to do this business. The climate is naturally cold and there are plenty of natural, renewable energy sources that are mainly geothermal. Iceland is also known for its largest crypto mining farms in the world.
This year in February, the business development manager of a local energy supplier, Johann Snorri Sigurbergsson told he believes that the crypto mining volume in the country will double by the end of 2018. He also noted that bitcoin isn’t really an asset that will be here in 5-10 years because all of the data centers now used by miners will later become technology incubators for something else.
Other companies in Iceland however, are working on a new bitcoin mining hardware and have plans to spread the machines all across the world starting from Canada and Norway.

Millennials Choose Bitcoin As Part Of Their Retirement Plans
“Propensity [to own crypto] peaked among younger respondents at 42 percent.” The Harris Poll last month found that among those aged 18 to 34, “nearly 1 in 3 prefers Bitcoin to government bonds, more than 1 in 4 prefers Bitcoin to stocks, nearly 1 in 4 prefers Bitcoin to real estate, and more than 1 in 5 prefers Bitcoin to gold.”With Charles Schwab’s findings regarding retirement savings, Grayscale Investments had an award-winning Drop Gold campaign and BTC was seen as the digital gold among the younger investors. As per other reports, millennials are likely to choose a crypto asset such as BTC if a recession strikes harder. The fear of recession has increased around the world. The traditional indicators for recession have started to show up clearly since the US treasury curve for the two-year and 10-year bonds has officially inverted starting from 2007. Also, the gold has started to rally as the stocks topped out. The global PMI readings also started to drop below 50 showing signs of recession among many other indicators. What is also concerning is that this is coming to many regions of the world and they are slowly developing chaos starting from the US-China trade war, the Hong Kong protests and the massive hyperinflation in Venezuela.
