Old Hydroelectric Dam Will Power Crypto Mining In New York


Eco-friendly mining is definitely a thing now. And now another interesting project is about to go live, this time in Valatie Falls, New York.

“The historic 1-megawatt Valatie Falls dam, originally built in 1983, was purchased in March 2018”

DPW Holdings has successfully completed the work on repurposing a hydroelectric dam into a mining farm power supply. The company is now getting ready to use the dam to power a mining farm it hopes to finish building closer to the end of the year.

“This project provided a unique opportunity for DPW subsidiaries to collaborate and innovate to create a new model for cryptocurrency mining, for which electricity is by far the largest operational cost factor,” – CEO and chairman Milton “Todd” Ault III explained.

“We look forward to bringing this innovative new facility fully on-line during the fourth quarter of 2018.”

The operation will be run via Super Crypto Mining – a dedicated subsidiary. DPW will use its own mining hardware, the AntEater, which was developed back in January in conjunction with Samsung.

New York…

…seems to be a busy destination for mining. Coinmint recently announced that it is converting an abandoned aluminium plant.
