国家电力公司Chernomorenergo RUE于12月31日在一篇Facebook帖子中宣布,由于电力问题,阿布哈兹共和国政府将关闭部分加密货币矿场。

公告显示,Chernomorenergo将停止向15个 加密货币 采矿设施供电,总容量为8,950千瓦时(kWh),相当于1,800户家庭的用电量。此次削减是一系列“限制某些类别用户电力消耗临时措施”的一部分。Chernomorenergo还指出,此次停止供电,矿场所有者表示理解并配合合作。


全球的监管机构都对 加密货币 采矿业的电力消耗表示担忧。11月,挪威停止了对比特币BTC)采矿设施的电力补贴。社会主义左翼党(SV)的议会代表Lars Haltbrekken表示:


“挪威无法继续为最肮脏的 加密货币 输出形式[ 比特币 ]提供巨额税收优惠, 加密货币 采矿需要大量能源并产生大量温室气体向全球排放。”


在美国,华盛顿州的奇兰县公共事业区为 加密货币 矿工提出了一种新的电力定价结构,旨在降低电力需求增加的成本。该区“正着手解决该问题(费率结构),以降低成本并保护已在系统中大量投资的客户们”。


Cointelegraph曾于10月报道, 比特币 矿工2018年前六个月的收入已经超过了2017年全年的收入,但 加密货币 周刊Diar表示,矿工们自己却看不到多少利润。当时, BTC 矿工的奖励和费用在2018年前三个季度已达到47亿美元,比2017年全年的利润高出约14亿美元。据报道,矿工每月可获得54,000枚 比特币 。


据报道,在当前的熊市中,随着对冲操作数量的增加,12月中国矿商成为本地和国际 比特币 的最大卖空者。据报道, 加密货币 市场的严重下滑导致新一代矿工开始对冲他们的代币以避免市场风险。

Government of Abkhazia Cuts Off Power to 15 Cryptocurrency Mining Facilities


The government of the Republic of Abkhazia has cut power to some cryptocurrency mining farms due to electricity concerns, state electric utility Chernomorenergo RUE announced in a Facebook post on Dec. 31.


Per the announcement, Chernomorenergo cut power to 15 facilities with a total capacity of 8,950 kilowatt-hours (kWh), which is purportedly equivalent to the electricity consumption of 1,800 households. The cuts were made as part of a series of “temporary measures to limit the consumption of electricity by certain categories of subscribers." Chernomorenergo also notes that, following the cuts, owners of the mining farms showed understanding and collaboration.


Regulators worldwide have expressed concerns over the cryptocurrency mining industry’s electricity consumption. In November, Norway ended electricity subsidies for Bitcoin ( BTC ) mining facilities. Parliamentary Representative for the Socialist Left Party (SV) Lars Haltbrekken stated that "Norway cannot continue to provide huge tax incentives for the most dirty form of cryptocurrency output [...] [Bitcoin] requires a lot of energy and generates large greenhouse gas emissions globally."


In the United States, the Chelan County Public Utility District of the state of Washington proposed a new electricity pricing structure for cryptocurrency miners meant to pass down the cost of increased electricity demand. The district “is addressing (the rate structure) in a way that captures the cost and protects the investment for the customers that are already here and invested greatly in our system.”


As Cointelegraph reported in October, Bitcoin miner revenues for the first six months of 2018 had surpassed results in 2017, but miners themselves saw little profit, according to weekly crypto outlet Diar. By that time, the rewards and fees for BTC miners had already reached $4.7 billion in the first three quarters of 2018, around $1.4 billion more than the profits in all of 2017. Miners reportedly still gained 54,000 Bitcoin monthly.


In December, Chinese miners reportedly became the biggest short sellers of Bitcoin both locally and internationally, following an increased number of hedging operations in the current bear market. The severe cryptocurrency market decline reportedly caused a new generation miners to start hedging their coins to avoid market risks.
