Cryptocurrency mining continues to talk about, and this time we have a very peculiar case. Authorities of Ukraine discovered an illegal cryptocurrency farm with more than 5,000 devices, including 3,800 consoles PlayStation 4 Pro running on stolen power.

According to information from Kotaku, the local authorities confiscated each of the devices found in this warehouse and until the moment of arrest, this place operated as if nothing had happened. It was not until a peak in electricity consumption alerted the authorities and it was thanks to this that they discovered this operation. Apparently, the defendants managed to steal energy by using special meters that partially concealed their activity.

This would not be the first time something similar has happened, since a few months ago, a group of Chinese hackers modified the values ​​of the NVIDIA RTX 3060 graphics card to mine cryptocurrencies. On the other hand, they denied that the PS5 can be used for this same practice.
