"The Montana legislature has passed a bill that protects the right to mine bitcoin, among other provisions."
"The bill is designed to give Bitcoin miners the right to mine “without being subjected to undue discrimination or requirements.”"
"The new legislation would also prohibit discriminatory digital asset mining utility rates, prohibit local government powers related to digital asset mining, and prohibit specific taxation on the use of cryptocurrency as a payment method."
"Additionally, the bill provides for digital assets as personal property."
"The bill also states that digital assets used as a method of payment may not be subject to additional taxation or charges by the state or local government."
