Crypto Mining Firm Receives Bomb Threat Over Noise Level
On Saturday, "destroy peace" as noise was sent to the Norwegian cryptocurrency mining company, a bomb threat.
According to Yahoo Finance, Kryptovault, a cryptographic mining company with facilities in several Norwegian cities, reports that local newspapers are threatened after reporting the work.
"If you expand encryption mining and fill the country with noise, it will hinder peace, and I threaten to send explosives to you," the report said.
Gjermund Hagesaeter, executive director of Kryptovault, said the anonymous notice was immediately sent to the local authorities "who are taking every issue very seriously".
Kryptovault is again raising noise concerns about the sound level of mine operation by local residents. In June, the Vakdalposten newspaper reported that the company was attempting to hold a consultation meeting with its neighbors in Dale City to correct constant frustration.
However, given recent events, new assessments are under way to take action to ensure the safety of Kryptovault facilities and employees.
Indeed, Hagesaeter said in an interview with Yahoo Finance that "Dale is much more accessible to potential intruders," among the three cities operating in the three cities. As a result, city employees have warned that they should "stay on their toes" if unusual activities occur.
Mining is becoming an increasingly favorable activity for private companies around the world as consumer demand for cryptographic assets such as bitcoins grows. At the same time, many energy-intensive calculations are required to consume large amounts of power, and some experts encourage the need for sustainable energy solutions.
