Illegal mining farm in Bulgaria

The Bulgarian police seized roughly 1000 ASIC miners, which were deployed in a small village in Bulgaria. The facility was camouflaged in a community farm, an actual farm with crops and animals, but they steal the electricity for the machines. Based on the reports, the used amount of energy was more than the average, cumulative monthly consumption of a few thousand families.

The provider recognized the anomaly in the system, and they are localized relatively fast the illegal activity. As they said, this will be faster in the future, due to the development of technical background. Bulgaria were more times in the international press, not surprisingly, because of the “shady miners” from the country. But until now, this is the biggest electricity-theft, in the case of cryptocurrency mining.
