The whole point is functionally it cannot be banned. Politically it can be banned. But “tick tock next block” means to respond 😆. Also, the EU is not a central hub of mining. Energy is too expensive. The 90+% of mining everywhere else in the world would continue. And mining in the EU would continue as well, just as it has in China. It’s already illegal in China where 65% of mining was happening before the ban. Guess what?! TICK. TOCK. Next block. Oh, no… marijuana strands will all die out and the market will disappear if it’s illegal!!
