CryptoWatt receiver named, potentially clearing way to restarting plant

U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris put CryptoWatt, the idled Butte bitcoin-mining facility, into the hands of a receiver on Monday. The order was hailed by the attorney for plaintiffs Kevin Washington, a minority owner of the plant, and Rick Tabish, who built and managed the plant, as a key step necessary to getting the plant going, paying its power bill and preserving 32 Butte jobs.
