The electricity consumption of Bitcoin mining operations has always been a thorn in the side of many people. Various studies on this topic have been published over the years. In Chelan County, Washington, a major development is taking place. Rural electric utilities are taking an aggressive stance against various Bitcoin mining firms over their “disruption” of the local power grid.
Chelan County Turns on Bitcoin Mining
Over the past two to three years, various Bitcoin mining firms have set up shop in Washington’s Chelan County.

One of the growing problems for businesses and governments today is having their electronic files hacked and held for ransom.

The ransom price demanded by the hackers for that attack was a single bitcoin. Now that ransom price is being doubled as hackers have hit the Mecklenburg, North Carolina county government and are demanding 2 bitcoins.
