Principal couple caught mining Ethereum at school. Detention time?
The husband and wife team stole power from Puman Middle School in order to mine Ethereum (ETH) using seven high-end mining rigs, according to the local news outlet, HK01.
The report details how teachers and students at the school, located in Chenzhou of the Hunan Province, were hearing excessive noise from the IT room at all times of the day for several months. They also experienced a noticeable drop in their internet speed during this period.
When the teachers reported this to the Principal, Lei Hua, and the vice-principal, Wang Zhipeng, the pair responded that the school was likely using the air conditioners too much.
