It has been learnt that the KP provincial government has issued a formal notification in this regard. Zaka was appointed by the KP government as an expert in an advisory committee overseeing its digital assets including cryptocurrency and cryptomining.
It is worth mentioning here that in March, the KP government said it is planning to build two hydroelectric-powered pilot “mining farms” to capitalise on a bullish global cryptocurrency market.
