Bitcoin Mining Comes to the Arctic Circle

The Siberian city of Norilsk is best known as the home of mining giant MMC Norilsk Nickel PJSC. With a population of 180,000, it’s one of the biggest human settlements beyond the Polar Circle and only reachable by plane or boat. The city may soon be famous for a different type of mining though — it now hosts the Arctic’s first crypto farm for producing new Bitcoins. BitCluster, the facility’s Russian owner, is already planning an expansion after starting operations late last year.
