The U.S. Department of Energy will suspend its investigation into the consumption of energy resources by miners.

Specifically, the court sided with Riot Blockchain and a local industry group.

A day earlier, the Department of Energy decided to conduct a survey among mining companies and collect data of interest to the regulator.

However, Riot and the Texas Blockchain Council (TBC) said the requirements hurt business and violate their privacy.
