Police investigating the use of unknown electricity from Daqing city in the north of China encountered an interesting picture. Police teams investigating in a field found Bitcoin mining equipment hidden under the hills.
Police teams investigating a mysterious incident in Daqing city in northern China encountered a scene that seemed to have skyrocketed from thrillers. Police teams investigating the mysterious excessive use of electricity reported to the authorities encountered two piles of land similar to the burial mound in a field. Research on the mounds showed that these mounds belong to Bitcoin mining, not to the graves of the victims of a mysterious murder as it was supposed to be.
An oil company operating in the region reported that they had lost their power in an undetermined reason recently. Police teams, who started to investigate the incident, investigated the area. As a result of the research carried out, two hillocks were found in a field in the region. Police teams found the entrance of one of the traps and found that the equipment used for mining Bitcoin was included.
In a statement made by the police teams, it was stated that the Bitcoin mining incident in the hills in the field was not a singular event. Police announced that in the same week he found bitcoin mining equipment placed under a doghouse in a county in Heilongjiang province.
Increasing Bitcoin mining activities in China are thought to stem from the recent increase in Bitcoin prices. Although cryptocurrency trading is prohibited in the country, cryptocurrency mining is not prohibited. Cheaper electricity in China has led to a similarly widespread crypto mining activity in the past.
