Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko suggested that workers should mine cryptocurrencies in their native country instead of going to Poland and Germany to fill low-paid jobs.
At a staff gathering at JSC, Belaruskali, one of the world’s largest potash fertilizer manufacturers, saw Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko urge employees to mine cryptocurrencies with the extra power available. The Belarusian leader also noted that Belarusian employees are not in high demand overseas, except for agricultural laborers.
Lukashenko cautioned in a video released by the Пул Первoго Telegram channel on August 27:
“We must understand; they are not waiting for us anywhere. And if someone is, it may be on the plantations.”
