An almost constant whine in North Tonawanda has neighbors near a new cryptocurrency plant along Erie Avenue unhappy with city leaders who they feel pushed the project through.
The facility is located on the former Fortistar natural-gas site. It was recently purchased by the Canadian-based company “Digihost” and now features several two-story shipping containers that are being used to mine and authenticate cryptocurrency.
But those containers also appear to be the source of a lot of noise.
Complaints were filed with the City and North Tonawanda police were even called to take decibel readings at and around the site this week. There was enough concern that North Tonawanda Mayor Austin Tylec (D) issued a statement Friday to address the noise, he also spoke to 2 On Your Side.
