There are no clear regulations regarding mining activity of cryptocurrencies. The government has issued instructions regarding bitcoin investment and has warned that bitcoin is not regulated. Even after the instruction of RBI, still, the Bitcoin investment or trading is not illegal in India. Mining is just like developing a software and there is no regulation in this regard. Therefore till now the mining activity is also legal in India Source: Bitcoin Forum
Bitcoin mining is the process of updating the Bitcoin blockchain or the ledger. It is also the method through which new bitcoins enter the whole ecosystem. Bitcoin miners put their resources (time, electricity, equipment, computation, etc.) to validate new transactions and hence mine new ‘blocks’ (blocks are a group of transactions). Bitcoin Mining – Legal Or Illegal? There is a way to answer this shortly and quickly, and that answer is yes, it is legal to mine Bitcoin. However, it is legal to mine it only in those countries where Bitcoin itself is legal. There are also countries that have made Bitcoin, and probably most other (if not all) cryptocurrencies illegal. Algeria. Illegal – If you live in the Northen African nation of Alergia, you aren’t allowed to buy, sell or possess any form of cryptocurrency. The declaration was made in the Algerian “Journal Officiel” on December 2017. All types of cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin is illegal, and breaking the law is punishable by both law and force. As of February 2020, Bitcoin was legal in the U.S., Japan, the U.K., Canada, and most other developed countries. In general, it is necessary to look at Bitcoin laws in specific countries. As of now, bitcoin mining is considered legal in many countries, and it is safe, but such regulatory environments can change quickly. A striking example of how official attitudes to bitcoin mining can change, came in Iran in June 2019 officials at the Ministry of Energy threatened to cut off power to crypto mining due to energy overconsumption.
