Kryptovault, a Norway-based mining company, which operates in the cities of Honefuss, Follum, and Dale, has received the bomb threats because of the noise produced by its mining farms.
The bomb threat read as follows:
“This is sabotage. If you are expanding crypto mining and filling the country with noise, then you will be sabotaging the peace. I am threatening to send you some explosives”.
The large mining farms are causing inconvenience to local residents. Mining enterprises require powerful cooling systems that generate constant noise. The conflict between the company and the residents has dragged on for a long time, and now it has taken new turns.
Local police were looking into the matter and were assessing whether further measures should be taken. Kryptovault’s employees at Dale have been asked to be particularly aware and they must evacuate immediately in the case of any abnormal activity that is observed.
“We have also asked the police to assess whether any further action needs to be taken. The facility at Follum is located in a fenced area, so it would be difficult for any intruder to gain access but the one at Dale is far more accessible so we have warned everyone to be on their toes,” Kryptovault’s managing director, Gjermund Hagesaeter, told.
