The industrial park “Levoberezhny” is building a crypto mining center. It will be located in an old Russian town of Kirishi that dates back to XVII century and stands on the banks of Volkhov river. The facility will be commissioned in the very near future.
Representatives of the district administration noted that the new center will become the largest crypto mining project in the country.
The governor of the region Alexander Drozdenko was the first to initiate the creation of suitable conditions for mining in the Leningrad district. In October 2017, he proposed to involve the tech valley and the vacant areas of Leningrad NPP.
