Driven by low electricity costs and high profits, cryptocurrency miners have broadened their horizons and began mining in small corners around the world. Some residents chose to accept this new form of economy, but others began to opt out.
Fukui City, located between the Sea of Japan and Ryohaku Mountain, is not a tourist attraction, but is famous for another reason.
Low rents and electricity have attracted a large number of cryptocurrency miners to this coastal city. Local residents also hope that more miners can be stationed here.
In this city of 250,000 people, a former garment factory has now become a busy virtual currency mine. Alt Design from Tokyo runs 500 servers here, and the number of Ethereum produced per month has reached 200.
