In this paper we will try to present one aspect of energy consumption caused by equipment for cryptocurrency mining. We will first address problems concerning increscent number of nonlinear loads leading to the fact that the active power no longer represents the main part of total power delivered to customer. Since the distributors do not measure the other components of power, they tend to have high level of losses. We will stress in this paper losses produced by power supply unit in the mining ring, since nowadays one of the greatest nonlinear consumers is equipment for cryptocurrency mining. Special attention will be paid to quantities of active, reactive and distortion power.
