Belarus Introduces Special Electricity Tariff for Miners

Belarus has classified crypto miners in the same electricity-tariff grouping as data centers, according to a directive jointly issued by the Ministry of Energy and Ministry of Anti-Monopoly.

The directive, issued Sept. 27 and made public on Thursday, adds two groups of customers to the previous rankings.One of those groups is: “Organizations processing data, providing services for information storage and related activities, including mining and data centers.”The group is further divided into five sub-groups, depending on how much electricity they use, from 25 million kilowatt hours to 500 million kWh this year.The directive does not provide prices for electricity, which are defined by other regulating documents.
