Mining vs electricity costsFriday, April 24, 2020 | Sponsored article
Over time, mining is becoming a very energy-consuming activity. The computing power required to maintain acceptable production level is constantly growing, as well as electricity bills. How to increase the economic efficiency of mining data centers in these conditions?
Some miners prefer to steal electricity, some use hosting sites, which offer very low electricity rates.
However, the risks exist in both these cases.
In Russia, in 2018, the Federal Security Service revealed the fact of illegal mining at the Russian Nuclear Center in Sarov. In 2019 some miners from Ingushetia managed to steal 130 million rubles of electricity. The materials of these revealed cases were passed to the court.
The offenders were sentenced to jail detention. And of course, the energy spent on mining would also have to be paid.
The expensive mining equipment used to get the digital currency is usually not reimbursed. It is taken to the custody warehouse as evidence of the case. If the equipment was legally imported into the country, at the end of the trial it will be returned to the owner, but by that time it will be absolutely useless, as the network complexity will be completely different.
Such massive attempts to gain profit through mining illegally are really too risky, when there is a completely legal and reliable ways of cryptocurrency mining in legal mining hotels. The owners of these huge data centers usually have special conditions for energy supply, staff providing uninterrupted operation of the equipment, reliable protection against external factors and insurance that covers many types of risks.
