Bitcoin mining is on the move. Around the world, more companies and initiatives are being brought to life. Blockstream and Square have announced a partnership to build one in the U.S. based on renewable energy.
The Bitcoin infrastructure startup, led by Adam Back, and the financial services company, led by Jack Dorsey, will create an open-source Bitcoin mining facility driven by solar energy. The BTC mine will be constructed on a Blockstream mining site located in the United States.
Their objective is to share details on the project’s economics and their experience in the development of the facility. In addition, they plan to raise awareness and demonstrate BTC mining and renewable energy can be a catalyzer for a transition towards clean energy.
Together with @Square, we’re building an open-source fully solar-powered #Bitcoin mining facility at one of our US #BlockstreamMining locations to demonstrate how #BTC mining and renewables can drive the clean energy transition. ☀️⛏️ https://t.co/0D4yKOe82M pic.twitter.com/HdVhe031GY
