Bitcoin miners are d̶e̶s̶t̶r̶o̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶e̶n̶v̶i̶r̶o̶n̶m̶e̶n̶t̶. integrating with local businesses to re-use heat & reduce carbon emissions.
We teamed with Magdalena Gronowska (@Crypto_Mags) to dive deeper on this exciting development in mining. The full article: https://braiins.com/blog/green-innovation-in-bitcoin-mining-recycling-asic-heat
Projects in this space:
The first project mentioned is MintGreen (link), who have collocated with Vancouver Island Sea Salt and Shelter Point Distillery to make use of their waste heat for producing salt and whiskey. It doesn’t get much more Bitcoiner than that, MintGreen.
Another cool application is a pilot project from Genesis Mining in Sweden, where they’re directing waste heat into a greenhouse used to grow fruits and vegetables and improve local self-sufficiency. Many of Genesis’ locations around the world are powered by renewables.
But the article simply wouldn’t be complete without the legendary #SPA256, which is still to this day the coolest method we’ve ever seen to stack sats: https://twitter.com/JessePeltan/status/1287518077291241473
