As China continues to intensify its crackdown on Bitcoin mining, Republican Senator Cynthia Lummis has asked BTC miners to relocate to her state of Wyoming.

The pro-Bitcoin Senator voiced her approval over the ability of Bitcoin mining to utilize about 40% renewable energy sources, whereas traditional mining options use just 12%.

While speaking to CNBC, Lummis touted the flagship cryptocurrency as a remarkable invention that has encouraged a lot of innovation. Therefore, it should be adopted. She used El Salvador as a case study, noting that the move will reduce the time and fees spent sending money to residents in the Central American country from people overseas.
