Russian experts believe that the mining of crypto-currencies negatively affects the energy system, which is not designed for increased loads. “The probability of accidents on power networks is increasing due to the increase in the load on them in the process of mining (method of obtaining) crypto-currency,” the report says.
The increased workload, experts concluded, creates as a result the risks of fires, reports RIA Novosti.
Currently, the bitcoin rate is about $ 8,500 per unit. Some time ago, the popular crypto currency experienced a decline to a level of about $ 6.6 thousand, but then played a fall. Bitcoin Cash is traded at $ 1.07 thousand for a “coin”.
