According to Ahn Temposten, a leading Norwegian newspaper, the Norwegian government is supposed to withdraw the preferential treatment of electricity charges for Bitcoin mining companies that have been applied until next year . It seems that mining companies have rebounded about this movement.
The Norwegian government has so far set the electricity charge for mining companies to 0.48 kronor per kilowatt (about 6 yen) . However, in response to the government ‘s budget agreement being revised, it will be set at 16.58 kroner (about 218 yen) per kilowatt after January 2019. From the current price, it is actually 34 times, which seems to be a very tough measure for mining companies.
According to data from Northern Bitcoin, a listed company in Germany mentioned by Forbes, Norwegian companies are said to be able to mining at an average cost of $ 7,700 per BTC thanks to electricity preferential treatment.
Jon Ramvi, who is CEO of Oslo-based Blockchangers
“Reducing domestic mining means that the electricity charges for companies and citizens will go down, which means we do not give a resource benefit to Bitcoin mining companies, but we will enjoy it.”
