Is this correct  Bitcoin miners were paying a tiny fraction of a penny per kWh in Norway Is this correct Bitcoin miners were paying a tiny fraction of a penny per kWh in Norway
The Norwegian government has scrapped a tax subsidy on power currently granted to bitcoin miners. Some Scandinavian countries charge tax on electricity consumption, including Norway. According to a report from local news outlet Aftenposten, in its state budget, the government said that cryptocurrency miners in the country will have to pay normal electricity tax from the New Year. At the moment, larger mining firms receive the same electricity tax discount as other power-intensive industries in the country. Those with a capacity of more than 0.5 megawatts are charged only 0.48 øre ($0.00056) per kilowatt hour instead of the standard rate of 16.58 øre ($0.019). An øre is 100th of a Norwegian krone.

KnC Miner CEO Hinted Secret Advantage Chinese Miner November 2016 KnC Miner CEO Hinted Secret Advantage Chinese Miner November 2016
-Bitcoin news, price, information & analysis The bitcoin community has found yet another topic to debate about. It became evident there may be something fishy going on with Bitmains ASICBOOST technology. Albeit the company claims it was never used on the main bitcoin network, there is reason to believe they did exactly that. In fact, KnC Miner CEO Sam Cole hinted at such a development nearly six months ago. It is quite interesting to keep an eye on the ASICBOOST discussions these days. Bitmain claims they never used the technology to gain an unfair economic advantage. Interestingly enough, their own mining pool prefers to mine empty blocks. Such behavior could be an indicator of the company using their technology to earn additional revenue over other miners. Rest assured there will be a lot of back-and-forth discussions about this topic. This entry was first seen by us on April 07, 2017 10:00 AM.
