A detailed exploration of a bitcoin mine in Dalian, a major city in the north-east of mainland China, has been published by VICE’s technology title Motherboard.
The facility is called the No. 1 Bitcoin Mine. It contains 3,000 miners and costs $80,000 a month for 1,250 kW of electricity to keep them running, according to the film. It’s located in the Changcheng area, in the waterfront Lushunkou district.
The mine appears to be cooled by huge industrial fans mounted on the walls of the building. According to Motherboard, a “persistent, deafening buzz” emanates from the fans in the hot summer months, where temperatures hit 27 degrees celsius.
