纽约市政工作人员而在工作时间采矿比特币而被处罚

纽约市教育厅的一名雇员在他的工作的电脑上进行比特币采矿而被抓,受到纪律处分。

根据最近公布的纽约市利益冲突委员会的处罚通知,部门员工Vladimir Ilyayev 承认自己在2014年3月和4月进行了比特币挖矿。比特币采矿是一个能源密集型过程,新的交易被添加到区块链上,这样就生成了新的区块,从而获得比特币。

根据Ilyayev的说法,他已经安装了晚上运行的采矿软件,同时监测了他家的进度。

这个文件,包括Ilyatev的签名以及纽约市教育厅顾问Karen Antoine和利益冲突委员会主席Richard Briffault的签名,声明称:

“我从2014年3月19日至2014年4月17日晚上6点至早上6点之间,在我的(工作)电脑上运行比特币采矿软件,当时我的比特币采矿软件被(教育部的教学与信息技术司)关闭”。

董事会认为Ilyatev违反城市法规,涉及到使用市政时间和资源获得经济利益,但最终决定没收四天的带薪年假,总价值为611美元。

董事会在审查了以前关于滥用市政时间和资源进行牟利活动的案件之后,决定不再施加任何额外的处罚。”处置声明说。

据“2015年4月起的一份利益冲突委员会信”报道,一名网络工程师在他的教育部计算机上试图运行采矿软件。然而,工程师最终没有受到处罚,因为“没有证据表明他已经成功获得了比特币。”

一月份,联邦储备委员会的一名雇员在美国中央银行所拥有的服务器上进行比特币采矿,而被罚款五千美元,

 

An employee of New York City's Department of Education has been disciplined after being caught mining bitcoins on his work computer.

According to a recently published disposition from the City of New York Conflicts of Interest Board, department employee Vladimir Ilyayev admitted to mining bitcoin between for a period of several weeks between March and April 2014. Bitcoin mining is an energy intensive process by which new transactions are added to the blockchain, generating new coins with every block that is created.

Ilyayev is said to have installed mining software that ran at night, while he monitored progress from his home.

The document, which includes a signature from Ilyatev along with those from NYC Education Department counsel Karen Antoine and Conflicts of Interest Board chair Richard Briffault, states:

"I ran bitcoin mining software on my [work] computer from 6:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. every night from March 19, 2014 until April 17, 2014, when my bitcoin mining software was shut down by [the Department of Education's] Division of Instructional and Information Technology".

The board sanctioned Ilyayev for violating the city's statutes that relate to using city time and resources for financial gain, though in the end, he was required to forfeit four days of paid annual leave – worth a total of $611.

"The Board, after reviewing prior cases involving the misuse of City time and resources for profit-making activities, has decided not to impose any additional penalty," the disposition states.

Public records indicate that Ilyayev's case isn't the first time that a New York Department of Education employee was investigated for using their work equipment to mine bitcoins.

According to a Conflicts of Interest Board letter from April 2015, a network engineer reportedly tried to run mining software on his Department of Education computer. However, the engineer was ultimately cleared as "there is no evidence that [he] successfully obtained bitcoin."

In January, an employee of the Federal Reserve Board of Directors was fined $5,000 and placed on probation after he was caught mining bitcoins on a server owned by the US central bank.
