Bitcoin Mining Rigs Caused a Big Fire in a Garage Complex [video]


Russian miners installed a “mining farm” consisting of special computers – rigs. Which rig had a few of high performance graphic cards plugged in it, bringing power consumption of each such rig to over 1 kWh. A few of such were placed in a garage inside of a garage complex but seems like the load was to high for the wiring so all this got into flames and caused the garage to completely burn down their garage and nearby garages together with the cars in them. The video is inside:

Each such “mining rig” can cost up to $3000 dollars which adds up to causing losses to neighbors by burning down their cars.

  1. China has these by the thousands, bitcoin is so crazy. What will it end up doing to us? Already each day its up thousands the next day its down by thousands.

  2. My friends have never had any complications with Bitcoin Miners UK in well over five years, I began using a good while back. I found them to be superior service and cheaper. I rent various cloud mining contracts from them and have found them perfect. Their web page hasn’t been updated in ages, I asked why and the man I spoke to said all their customers are established and they don’t need more business, although I got an email the other month saying their site is due to be updated as they have found more partners to host their hardware in Iceland. So I would give them a look.
