Gazprom may make Russia the largest Bitcoin miner


Russia may soon increase its bitcoin production by involving the energy corporation Gazprom in the mining process. In this case, Moscow can take a decisive step towards conquering leading positions in the production of cryptocurrency, pushing the United States, China and other countries. Oil Price writes about the opportunities opening up to Russians.


This is an enterprise that is part of Gazpromneft and produces oil in Siberia. According to Yahoo! Finance, mining there will be carried out by burning natural gas at an oil field located in the Khanty-Mansiysk District. There is an electrical power station that uses electricity to mine Bitcoin.

Carbon dioxide released during drilling of wells with oil should not be released into the atmosphere, and its combustion leads to high fines. According to experts from Yahoo! Finance, the use of gas to generate electricity for cryptocurrency mining contributes to the "green" Technology.

It can also be a positive moment that stable energy supplies for mining will be carried out practically at no cost, since the new crypto farm and its facilities are located directly on the territory of the oil field, and there will be no need to attract expensive electricity from the networks.

    From an ounce of gold, or silver, you can make a piece of jewelry, for example, or a spoon, what can be made materially from bitcoin?

    Translation of a fig?
    Whether there is a mining farm or not is unclear. How the flaring of gas will turn green is unclear.
    About other farms - Sberbank, Siloviks, Caucasian - something absolute zero in the media ...

    To be honest, I still did not understand where this deposit is, whether Kondinsky district, or Oktyabrsky, but oh well, that's not the point.
    According to environmental standards, it is not comme il faut to emit associated gas into the atmosphere or burn it with torches as in Soviet times. Gazprom has built a power plant running on this gas. Since there is a surplus of electricity, why not use it? Moreover, there will be no problems with cooling for most of the year, since the new year it keeps overboard at -30C. Whether it will become the "largest" I doubt. The power plant is not that powerful, and the profile of the company is somewhat different. Rusal, it seems, was also going to mine at his hydroelectric power plants. In general, it's like growing tomatoes on a windowsill, you can grow and eat them, but you shouldn't rely on them.

    If anyone is interested, I found an old paper with details of the power supply

    I already imagined that someone was thinking about burning associated gas, for the sake of mining bitcoins ... or what? Imagine a shift worker frozen like a snowman in the polar tundra ...

      In the Russian Federation, it is forbidden to use cryptocurrency in calculations, and it is adequate, if the Russian Federation "digs up" a lot of cryptocurrency (in the Russian Federation, the emphasis is on bitcoin), the US Congress, the Fed and others will simply ban it and nullify all efforts ... than youthful pranks out of nothing trying to get rich ...

    The author is immediately visible in the humanities. Carbon dioxide CO2 does not burn. So the mission fails in advance. Actually, probably something else.

      Associated combustible gas is burned. This is not a rebuke, but a clarification

      Oh, who can explain?

      carbon dioxide must not be released into the atmosphere ...

      is logical.
      Associated sour gas would also be good to use ... logical.
      There is a note (from it, among other things, from the Pension Plus account to the World card, if necessary, I transfer), a tablet, a smartphone, a push-button.
      What needs to be poked for free bitcoins to appear and where can they be spent?
      Do they accept it at Pyaterochka? request
