Media: A state-owned nuclear power plant in Russia may soon power Bitcoin mining centres

A state-owned nuclear power plant in Udomlya, Russia, may soon begin to power the Bitcoin mining center. Late last month, Rosatom, a Russian national atomic energy company, built a bitcoin mine near the Kalinin nuclear power plant in the town of Udomlia, 200 miles northwest of Moscow. According to Sergei Nemchenkov, Rosatomgoatom's Rosanergoatom data center and digital product director, the company spent more than $ 4.8 million to build the 30-megawatt facility. It said that Rosenergoatom had no plans to mine itself, but used the opportunity to sell additional electricity to miners and provide rental space for their mining equipment, similar to the company's establishment of a data center near a nuclear power plant.
