The Crypto Conversation

Apr 21, 2022

Kiwi tech entrepreneur Daniel Batten has an intriguing thesis. He sees Bitcoin as an unexpected superhero - his view is that Bitcoin mining can drive us to 70% renewables-based energy consumption by 2030. 

Why you should listen

If we’re unable to transition to 70% renewable energy by 2030 the earth will face runaway climate change. Bitcoin mining could be the catalyst to drive the increased adoption of renewable energy this decade. Bitcoin miners are location agnostic, time-of-day-agnostic, and have an insatiable appetite for both existing and new energy production. This lowers the economic barrier that has been preventing the faster adoption of renewables. That’s why Bitcoin is an unexpected superhero.
