Beijing investigates crypto mining farms to improve energy efficiency

Apr 29, 2021 | Blockchain, De-Fi | 0 comments

Bitcoin’s electricity bill has been attracting the attention of regulators worldwide.

Beijing authorities are reportedly conducting inspections of crypto mining data centers to better understand their impact on energy consumption, Reuters reports Thursday.

The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Economy and Information Technology on Tuesday sent an emergency notice to the city’s data center operators asking them to report whether they are involved in mining Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies. The notice required data centers to report the amount of power consumed by crypto mining, the report notes.

A bureau official said that notice recipients include China’s top-three telecom operators. He noted that he was not aware of the reason behind the initiative, or whether it is part of a nationwide campaign.

The news comes amid a recovering Bitcoin hash rate, which experienced a major drop in mid-April due to massive power outages in the Chinese mining hub of Xinjiang. After tumbling to as low as 106 million terahashes per second on April 17, BTC hash rate rebounded to around 166 million TH/s on April 28.
