Most residents of McLouth, Kansas reportedly criticized the potential construction of a cryptocurrency data center about a mile and a half north of town.
Their main concerns are that the installation will damage the local environment and be too loud.
Not a warm welcome
According to recently cover, many residents of the small town of McLouth have decried the potential construction of a cryptocurrency data processing center on top of a nearby natural gas field. Paul Nissen – a local of the city – explained more about the location:
“What I’ve heard is that this is coming into our area, about a mile and a half north of where we are right now. They will provide their own generators to power it. The generators will be powered by natural gas drawn from the natural gas storage field.”
He also warned that the facility could be quite noisy and burn up the area’s energy reserves, causing pollution.
On the other hand, Roger Dahlby – an engineer working together with Crypto Colo Center to build the data center – assured that it will be a source of renewable energy. He further believes the company will provide job opportunities for the town, which has a population of less than 900 people.
Despite these benefits, the majority remain against the idea. Edith Williams – another McLouth resident – said she recently moved to the area and likes it the way it is. She vowed to do everything in her power to keep the miner away from her home.
A town council has yet to be held where authorities will discuss the various problems the facility could bring to local residents and whether to approve its opening.
Same thing in North Carolina
The people from Murphy, North Carolina, recently he complained that a crypto miner located next to their town is making such “crazy” noise that some people have relocated. Mike Lugiewicz is among those who haven’t moved yet, but are thinking about it:
“This morning it’s running at about 85 decibels. It sounds and feels like you’re behind a jet sitting on the asphalt and that jet never goes away, or imagine you’re inside Niagara Falls and you can never get rid of the noise like your house is dead center of its falls Niagara. “
He said the miner had also damaged the home’s power grid, leaving the community without electricity during the Christmas holidays.
Lugiewicz expressed hopes that local authorities are moving the facility away because many of Murphy’s residents are elderly and unable to leave their town.
