Norwegian Crypto Mining Firm Accused of Noise Pollution May Seize Operations
Norwegian Crypto Mining Operation Kryptovault, Accused of Noise Pollution May Shut Down
On August 11, crypto mining firm, Kryptovault supposedly received a bomb threat due to increased noise pollution caused by the firm. A letter was also issued to the firm by an unnamed individual/ group, which Bitcoin Exchange Guide previously reported. According to the claims made, their operations were sabotaging the country’s peace. As per recent updates on the matter, Kryptovault has more problems to worry about.
In particular, the crypto mining firm is said to be missing the necessary permits to run its operations to begin with, calling its entirety an illegal activity. As a consequence, Kryptovault will have to temporarily shut down its operations until the local government gives further notice.
In regard to this respective matter, CEO of Kryptovault, Stig Myrseth has defended his position and revealed that the firm has applied for the necessary licenses. He also added that prior to getting Kryptovault started, he was informed that the essential procedures were already taken care of.
As per CCN’s report, the accusation of increased noise levels has been confirmed by Norwegian resident, Trond Gulesto. Gulesto told a local news outlet that Kryptovault operates and produces noise, “24 hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year,” adding that his entire summer “has been ruined.”
In order to mend the damages made, Kryptovault plans to implement equipment that will reduce noise pollution. In particular, the crypto mining firm’s current 60 decibels will be cut down to 45 decibels, as an effort to uphold the country’s “peace”.
