Suspected crypto mining farm burns down in Thailand



A fire in a three-storey building in Chiang Mai, Thailand, was caused by a suspected cryptocurrency mining farm. CityNews reports that 72 servers were destroyed in the fire, which broke out Friday, December 3, with local police estimating $2 million baht (roughly $60,000) worth of damage.

No one was hurt because no one was in the building, but it’s possible that a heck of a lot of consumer-grade GPUs—the ones widely coveted due to the ongoing silicon shortage—were lost.
