During Badr City’s mining farm raid, police have seized 19 mining rigs that were used in the “Illegal mining” operations. Mining farm is a data center, technically equipped with dedicated computers or miners to mine cryptocurrencies.
One man was arrested on charges of money laundering through cryptocurrency.
