A bomb threat was sent to a Norwegian cryptocurrency mining company for “sabotaging the peace” with noise this past Saturday. Kryptovault, a crypto mining firm with facilities in a number of cities in Norway, reported receiving threats after a local paper reported on its work, according to Yahoo Finance. The bomb threat said “if you are expanding crypto mining and filling the country with noise, then you will be sabotaging the peace. I am threatening to send you some explosives,” according to the report. Kryptovault managing director Gjermund Hagesaeter said the anonymous notice was immediately sent to local authorities, who are “taking the whole issue very seriously indeed.” Noise complaints over the sound level of mining operations from local residents has been a reoccurring issue for Kryptovault. Back in June, Vakdalposten newspaper reported that the company hosted consultation meetings with neighbors in the city of Dale as an attempt to remedy ongoing frustrations.
