Norwegian Cloud Mining Company Receives Bomb Threat

Norwegian mining and data center company, Kryptovault, has reportedly received a bomb threat amid intensifying complaints of noise pollution. Kryptovault currently operates facilities in the Norwegian cities of Follum, Honefuss, and Dale.

The threat received stated: “This is sabotage. 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.”

Gjermund Hagesaeter, the managing director of Kryptovault, told local media that the company immediately informed police of the threat. “The threat has been reported to the police and these are also taking the whole issue very seriously indeed. We have also asked the police to assess whether any further action needs to be taken. The facility at Follum is located in a fenced area, so it would be difficult for any intruder to gain access but the one at Dale is far more accessible so we have warned everyone to be on their toes,” Mr. Hagesaeter said.

Kryptovault Employees Encouraged to Be Vigilant

The managing director emphasized that Kryptovault’s employees had been instructed to be extra vigilant in conducting their operations, especially those based in the company’s Dale facility. If any abnormal behavior is observed at the site, the company’s employees have been instructed to evacuate.

Lisbeth Edvardsen, the acting investigator at Honefoss police, has indicated that local authorities are taking the threat seriously, and are currently looking into the matter to assess what measures the police may take to respond to the threat.

The threat comes just days after the Common Council of the city of Salamanca, New York voted unanimously to pass a law that imposes “a moratorium on commercial cryptocurrency mining operations in the city.”
