Belarus Introduces Special Electricity Tariff for Miners



Belarus has classified crypto miners in the same electricity-tariff grouping as data centers, according to a directive jointly issued by the Ministry of Energy and Ministry of Anti-Monopoly.

  • The directive, issued Sept. 27 and made public on Thursday, adds two groups of customers to the previous rankings.
  • One of those groups is: “Organizations processing data, providing services for information storage and related activities, including mining and data centers.”
  • The group is further divided into five sub-groups, depending on how much electricity they use, from 25 million kilowatt hours to 500 million kWh this year.
  • The directive does not provide prices for electricity, which are defined by other regulating documents.
