Russian Post Employee Mined Cryptocurrencies In The Workplace
This happened in Stavropol - the former head of the Russian Post branch in Mineralnye Vody became involved in lawbreaking. He is accused of illegally mining digital currencies in the workplace.
Is mining a crime?
A criminal case has been opened against the ex-head of the Post of Russia branch; he is charged with abuse of official authority. Stavropol law enforcement agencies are investigating this case.
According to the case file, the suspect was engaged in illegal mining for six months, which caused damage to the enterprise in the amount of more than 30 thousand rub.
Mining at work is a new trend
Important to note is that this is not the first such precedent; a similar case occurred at the state-owned enterprise Ukrzaliznytsia in November last year. But that was on a much larger scale since the losses amounted to more than 1 million hryvnias (2.6 million rub).
