Abkhazia, the tiny, disputed Georgian territory along the Black Sea has been conducting near-daily raids of illegal Bitcoin mining farms that are straining its electrical grid. In March, Abkhazia shared two videos claiming it had found one \"large cryptocurrency mining facility\" in a village, a few others connected illegally to the power grid, and in total raided eight farms over the past few weeks. This past month, however, authorities claim they’ve uncovered even larger operations. One video claims they “dismantled and placed 1296 mining devices for safekeeping,” while another found mining farms inside an abandoned poultry factory that had been sealed off. Abkhazia has shared a few videos positively featuring Armenia’s daily raids and destruction of mining rigs.
