Located north of Oslo, the miner center of Kryptovault, which was previously accused of excessive noise, may be closed due to possible problems with the law.

Representatives of local authorities said that the company does not have the required permits and it works outlaw. At the same time, the head of the Kryptovault farm, Stig Murset, said that the company had already applied for the necessary licenses. He stressed that during the initial launch all the documents were available.

Kryptovault uses 9.5 thousand computers that consume 40 MW of energy for bitcoin mining. However, to cool such capacities, powerful systems are used, and they produce a lot of noise which affects the neighbours.
