Russian internet ombudsman’s bitcoin mining company is planning to open a new facility and corner 20% of the international market.

Internet ombudsman targets BTC

On Oct 29. Local news RBC reported that the Russian Mining Company (RMC) is planning to repurpose a metal factory in the country’s northern province of Karelia.

The ex Rusal facility was closed due to US sanctions in 2018. It could soon host a Bitcoin mining farm so large that it could account for one-fifth of global output.

“Our idea consists of converting the factory and selling its computer power as a service, that is to say, offering IT services,” the ombudsman, CEO Dmitry Marinichev, told RBC.
