The newly appointed head of the Cholpo-Ata Distribution Zone in Kyrgyzstan installed equipment for mining cryptocurrency at his home, connecting it to the power supply bypassing the meter. Sputnik writes about this with reference to the State Committee for National Security of the country.
The farm was found during a search. Theft was established in significant amounts, but the amount of damage has not yet been announced.
The organizer of the mining farm worked for a long time in the RES in various positions, and from December 8, he was supposed to take up the duties of the chief.
“While working in the energy system, the latter, despite the energy crisis in the country caused by the low-water cycle, used his official position to steal electricity, thereby harming energy security,” the State Committee said.
Recall that in November, the department identified a large mining farm with 2,500 servers.
