Crypto-currency mining threatens the infrastructure of Puerto Rico. The country has not fully recovered from the damage caused by Hurricane Maria, and it will be difficult for it to cope with the wave of "crypto-colonialism" that recently swept the island.
Scientists say that migratory crypto-exchange miners want to restore the infrastructure of Puerto Rico.
The article by experts from the University of Englius Raskin states that the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria in 2017 caused a lot of damage to Puerto Rico.
The country needs "investments to restore infrastructure". The situation is also aggravated by the serious financial difficulties facing the island. They led to the fact that "local authorities with caution welcomed the arrival of crypto-currency entrepreneurs on the island".
Scientists argue that "crypto-colonialism" has become quite popular in Puerto Rico. Some locals believe that entrepreneurs are eager to invest in projects that increase their own wealth, rather than the wealth of the population.
