Crypto Miners in Texas Halted Due to Extreme Heat

Many crypto miners have shut down operations due to a heatwave in Texas.

With temperatures well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit already in most areas, the Electric Reliability Commission of Texas (ERCOT) on Sunday urged Texas residents and businesses to save electricity.

Crypto miners have stopped mining operations, fearing that the state’s electrical energy may not be able to meet electricity needs, such as turning on air conditioners for long periods of time.

Crypto miner Core Scientific tweeted a notice that to help people in Texas, all Core Scientific ASIC servers located in the state have been shut down and will remain closed until further notice.
