Some 600 bitcoin mining computers have been stolen in Iceland in what is being described as one of the biggest thefts ever in the small island nation.
A total of 11 people have been arrested so far after four burglaries in the Reykjanes peninsula.
The computers are yet to be found and are believed to be worth almost £1.5m.
Icelandic media have dubbed the crime the ‘big bitcoin heist’ and the thieves could potentially make more money if they use the computers to mine the cryptocurrency and then sell it.
