NCLA Persuades Energy Dept. to Halt Unlawful Emergency Demand for Cryptocurrency Mining Data

View descriptionShare

NCLA settled with DOE and the Energy Information Administration to formally end an attempt to force cryptocurrency mining companies including members of the Texas Blockchain Council to hand over sensitive information about their operations through a mandatory Cryptocurrency Mining Facilities Survey. NCLA alleged that the Office of Management and Budget had given EIA emergency permission to collect this data despite EIA’s failure to demonstrate that short cutting the statutory process would prevent public harm, as federal law requires.

Vec and NCLA Litigation Counsel Kara Rollins discuss this shape shifter crypto case and celebrate NCLA’s victory in defense of privacy rights and the rule of law.
