600 Bitcoin Mining Machines Stolen
« on: March 04, 2018, 08:35:02 pm »
If you don't have the knowledge on how to steal Bitcoin virtually, you can always steal a huge bunch of hardware dedicated to mining said coins. That's what a group of people have pulled off in Iceland. They've stolen a total of 600 machines that include pretty sweet graphics cards and solid processors. The Icelandic police are sitting back and watching power meters. If they are plugged in, some landlords electricity bill is going through the roof. Also, there will be a warm spot visible from space.

   The thefts, which occured between late December and early January, were reportedly captured on surveillance cameras by Advania, the server company hit by two of the three thefts. (The graphics cards, processors and so on were allegedly stolen from a home.) Advania had been offering its customers access to bitcoin-mining rigs, and it sounds like those were the type that were stolen. The Associated Press reports that the stolen computers are worth nearly $2 million.Source: CNET
