The mining miracle of Siberia
The plant was built in 1960. Now, in its place, a production data processing center has been erected on which transactions for the production of digital gold are mainly “processed”. Its main advantages for production are cheap electricity, due to the still operating hydroelectric power station on its territory, and the cold climate, which allows mining equipment to work more efficiently and at the same time reducing cooling costs.
The operating hydroelectric power station is one of the largest in all of Russia, and the data center allows it to constantly sell excess energy and diversify its client base. Moreover, due to the fact that the Russian state does not recognize cryptocurrency mining, Bitriver, according to Bloomberg, does not directly recognize that it is mining, but “only provides equipment and technical services to its customers, working like any other production data processing center.”
It should be noted that although the miners are frightened by the fall of bitcoin, as cryptocurrency news reports, they still strive to increase their capacities.
