On March 28, the Russian police banned a bitcoin mine for stealing state power, and 10 bitcoin miners were arrested. The mine business is said to have consumed nearly $ 200,000 worth of state power each month. The interior ministry said the criminals managed to install advanced infrastructure at eight different locations to connect mining equipment to the country's electricity supply. All illegally produced tokens are cleared through foreign exchange. The Russian National Guard seized 1,500 mining equipment, 2 million rubles and improved electricity meters during 20 searches.
