Crypto mining operations have been witnessing some changes within the industry in terms of locations. A recent interview with the CEO of the mining giant Bitriver, revealed that Russia is becoming a preferred hotspot for crypto miners.

Russian Mining Giant to Build Two Additional Facilities to Cope With the High Demand

According to Igor Runets, CEO and founder of the Russian mining company Bitriver, American and European investors are moving their infrastructure from China, Africa, and Latin America to Russia. The main reason behind the shifting move is the expensive costs of electricity in such regions.

That said, most crypto miners are looking to cut costs amid the bitcoin (BTC) bull-run seen over the last few months. Bitriver CEO told Kommersant that its existing capacity as a mining company is at the top. Runets said the company is hoping to reach 1 gigawatt (GW) “in the next 18 months.â€

Such expectations encourage Bitriver to increase its capacity by building two new crypto mining facilities in Krasnoyarsk with 80 megawatts (MW) in total.

On the other hand, the firm seeks to establish another mining infrastructure in Buryatia in the Siberian region, with 300 MW of capacity.

However, its first stage will have an initial capacity of 100 MW. Per the CEO, the deadline set by Bitriver is by the end of summer of this year.

Increase in Wholesale Chinese Crypto Miners Customers

Other domestic mining companies are seeing several applications for crypto mining hosting. Sergey Arestov, the co-founder of Bitcluster, highlighted that a significant number of wholesale Chinese customer orders keep coming to the company.

He forecasts that the demand could witness “a strong increase in demand†starting in the fall of 2021, as the expectations for the BTC prices are still very bullish.

This trend on a large batch of orders made Bitcluster set a plan to expand their capacity by adding 60 MW at any point of 2021.
