The Bitcoin Boom Reaches a Canadian Ghost Town
How do you revitalize old industrial towns?

Ocean Falls, BC was faced with that probelm.  For the past 4 decades, the town searched for a way to revitalize itself.  After the paper mill closed, the population fell from 5,000 to around 100.

Now, this ghost town is being re-awakened by Bitcoin mining.
