    In Kazakhstan, the authorities conducted global checks for illegal mining. As a result, they identified 13 clandestine farms that worked with a total capacity of 22 MW.

    The official website of the Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan reports on the details. Illegal farms were concentrated in different regions of the country – Nur-Sultan, Alma-Ata, Karaganda, Kostanay, Turkestan, Pavlodar, Akmola regions, etc. The raids on black miners continue, according to the Ministry of Energy.

    Kazakhstan at one time occupied a leading role in world mining. Companies from China and Russia fled here. But in February, the country challenged shady miners as it faced critical power shortages.

    To save the situation, the Minister of Economy, Alibek Kuantyrov, proposed to impose higher taxes on miners – now the rate will rise to 10 once. Experts predict that such draconian fees will force companies to look for more profitable regions for bitcoin mining.

    By the way, a month ago, miners seriously thought about leaving Kazakhstan. During the January protests, electricity and the Internet were cut off en masse in the country. Theoretically, companies can master Russia, because the country legalizes this area and proposes to equate miners with entrepreneurs.
