Pirate MP uses power in official apartment to generate cryptocurrency

Tomáš Vymazal used the power in the apartment he receives as a Pirate Party MP to generate cryptocurrency, the news site Aktualne.cz reported. Mr. Vymazal’s activities were given away by a major rise in electricity consumption at the flat. The lower house deputy, who is 28, said his powerful computers had helped to heat up the cold property on Nerudova St.

However, Mr. Vymazal also apologised and promised to give the money he had earned from generating the cryptocurrency Zcash to charity.
