With the astounding rise of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, utilities need to prepare for how this development impacts their services.

In this webinar, we dive deep into a real-world case of a county dealing with an extreme amount of service requests for gaming servers to mine cryptocurrencies — Chelan County.

Join leaders from the Chelan County PUD for a lively discussion about:

  • How they plan to deal with the pile of service requests from Bitcoin miners that equal to their peak load
  • Why the Central Washington area became a hotspot for mining
  • How to balance both customer service and the technical challenges of these requests
  • How policies around the issue may evolve
