Montreal, Quebec, Canada–(May 23, 2019) – Solutions Risque Investigations & Security Services, a security and investigation firm headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, has been offering executive protection services since 2017 to crypto companies and professed “crypto influencers” who have been cast into the limelight and increasingly at risk of crypto crime. Solutions Risque is showing an expanded concentration and niche security expertise working with individuals in the crypto community.
Quebec’s Support for Crypto Miners
On April 29, 2019, the province of Quebec’s energy board, Régie de l’énergie, asked Hydro-Quebec, North America’s largest producer of renewable energy offering some of the lowest electricity rates in North America, to allocate a total of 668 megawatts to crypto miners. To date, most crypto miners were located in China but the Chinese government has been threatening an outright ban on crypto mining. The news coming out of the Canadian province has led to a dramatic influx in interest by crypto related companies wanting cheap electricity and support from a local government making Quebec, Canada the global hub for Bitcoin mining.
A spokesman for Hydro-Quebec confirmed the industry shift from China to Canada:
“Of the world’s top five largest blockchain players, we have at least three or four” – David Vincent, director of business development Hydro-Quebec.
Chinese based Bitmain Technologies, operates the world’s largest and second largest Bitcoin mining pools in terms of computing power, confirmed that the company was in talks with Quebec’s energy board, with an eye towards identifying potential bitcoin mining sites in the province.
A spokesman for Solutions Risque confirms the company’s interest:
“Crypto has enormous growth potential for the coming decade and Solutions Risque will continue offering executive protection, investigations and corporate security services to those in the crypto space.” – Jonathon Bachar
