SINGAPORE: The National University of Singapore (NUS) is investigating after cryptocurrency mining rigs were found in a resident’s apartment last week.

NUS’ UTown Residence has ordered for the equipment to be removed for the safety of residents, said a spokesperson on Tuesday (Apr 12) in response to media queries.

UTown Residence is one of the student dormitories located at NUS’ University Town. The spokesperson added that University Town residents were informed that crypto mining rigs were strictly prohibited."These consume very high levels of energy and emit unusually large amounts of heat, posing a fire hazard and the risk of power outages."In an email to residents on Monday, the management office said the cryptocurrency mining rigs were found during a “routine inspection” last week.
