Ukraine’s strategy to balance out the financial mayhem of the coronavirus pandemic might include nuclear-powered cryptocurrency mining, states its energy ministry.

The other day, the nation’s Ministry of Energy and Environmental Management revealed that it desired the nation’s 4 nuclear power plants to check out methods to “integrate crypto mining initiatives.”

The ministry stated it was dealing with the effort with Energoatom, the state firm that handles the country’s 4 nuclear power plants. The nuclear power plants have a combined 15 reactors that supply 13.9 GWe of electricity, the seventh-highest nuclear power generation rate worldwide.

The ministry specified that “implementing cryptocurrency mining projects” might “provide additional markets for atomic electricity,” would “boost the reliability and efficiency of Ukrainian nuclear power plants” and address surplus energy-related matters.

Nevertheless, in a Facebook post made in the early hours of May 6, the ministry went on to clarify that a person nuclear power plant will start the “first phase” of the pilot with a “data center” near its Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station— the biggest nuclear plant in Europe.

The ministry states that its pilot, performed with Energoatom, might ultimately “link customers of [mining centers] with a capability of up to 1000 MW,” while the preliminary Zaporizhia project will see 30 MW offered to mining efforts.

A representative of the ministry informed Cryptonews.com that this is just an idea. We’ll upgrade the post needs to the ministry supply more information about theproject


On The Other Hand, in the post, the ministry specified that the effort belonged to a relocation far from “Soviet” financial designs, and composed,

“One modern way to use excess electricity is to direct it into cryptocurrencies. This not only allows you to maintain a guaranteed load for nuclear power plants, but it also gives enterprises the opportunity to raise additional funds.”

The ministry states that the stimulus procedures will at first include federal government assistance, however ultimately objectives to ensure that nuclear power- reliant “data centers” end up being self-dependent.
