Sounds like it had about 3PH worth of power? At least that's what I recall reading.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

yeah true.  makes you wonder if someone slips an envelope of cash into the right persons mail box could this be the new way of DC's fighting the competiton?

If they are 6-8ph  that is 3 percent of the network.     Take out a few big places in a few spots and a big asic mining company could really rack up.


ie bitfury /cex.io or discus fish or knc could   sabotage some competition via arson. 

These were sp30's  if you were out to get spondoolies and you could burn a second  sp30 site down people would think spondoolies gear is bad.

I wonder if the next year will bring about some massive btc meltdowns or torch ups world wide.

It is painful to watch... Without proper anti fire policy there is not point in industrial mining I think.

Looking for an answer to this.

Looking at the photo it looks like the fire fire start at the melted cables on the right!  Wink

People need to understand the load their mining machines require and if their electrical systems can handle it!

I've heard of arsonists among firefighters. They were being paid extra if there was a fire, so they decided to torch some old buildings.
If they only knew the possibilities this crypto industry has to offer Cheesy
Rumor is three different buildings burnt down.

What usually happens with overloaded cables is.. it all seems to be running fine.. until you get a some hot weather or an extractor fan fails.

Three separate buildings going up wouldn't be a surprise, the heat from one fire, causes the overloaded cables in the next building to fail.

and you can tell that from looking at that picture? Here is the fire while it was still raging:




All cables (not too mention everything else) are burned to a crisp. No way you can tell from a photo where the fire originated. But then I dont understand how firemen manage to do that with any serious fire.

There are hundreds of these in the warehouse!  Shocked

Just imagine the current they draw and the heat they generate, no wonder it burnt down. If not I have one or two of those miners.

Interesting that the owner of such a big mining facility is so inactive on BitcoinTalk.

Doesn't surprise me at all.
He could be busy with other work, active on another forum - in other words - has a life outside of here.

I'm guessing that this farm didn't have proper overcurrent protection and grounding. I don't think the density is what's at fault.
