As the cryptocurrency is gaining ground throughout the world despite hiccups, there is big money available for mining fresh blocks. That means there is a significant requirement of powers to mine any digital currency. As far as the miners are concerned, they have to get energy at a cheaper cost to sustain the business. Therefore, Solar Alliance has seen a gap in the low-cost energy requirements and supply and showed its interest to enter the fray to make money.
Exclusive for Crypto Mining
The Vancouver-registered Solar Alliance disclosed that it has already acquired about 165,000 square foot of warehouse in Murphysboro in Illinois. The company is planning to install panels on the rooftop of the acquired place and indicated that it would use exclusively for mining operations of digital currencies. The firm has also indicated its readiness to provide it to tenants if they are ready to rent out their space in the building. The company is pinning its hopes of accessing the low-cost grid-supplied power to supplement its own energy-generating panels.
Solar Alliance thinks that it could be in a position to offer cheap energy to promising miners. It is a big process of mining a virtual currency because of its multiple layers. This included accessing previously-archived information through chain before adding “block.” As a result, the miners have to use a computer to resolve a difficult math problem. This meant that intense computer power is required to crack such puzzles to mine a digital coin.
The company’s spokesperson, William Shatner, felt proud to be associated with a group to enable the cryptocurrency revolution. The firm disclosed that it would complete the project in alliance with the City of Murphysboro. There were 7,000 persons living in the location, and over 20 percent of them were in poverty. The company aims to operate as part of a scheme that is known as “renewing the Murphysboro Community through green energy jobs” to revitalize the location.
For this purpose, the company plans re-retraining its citizens. The spokesperson said, “Blockchain technologies—and cryptocurrencies specifically—are at the cutting edge of a new distributed technology infrastructure. As an advocate for solar energy, I was intrigued by the potential for it to power cryptocurrency mining operations. They are energy-intensive, and utilizing solar arrays to power them makes social and economic sense.”
He thinks that digital currencies could help to curb fraud apart from improving payment settlement speed and cut down identity theft apart from offering global access to capital. Aside from that, he thinks that the combination of virtual currency mining and solar facilities offered meaningful changes. As the location is having over 20 percent of citizens living in poverty, solar and crypto could offer job opportunities to the local residents
He also pointed out that the agreement struck with the big solar panel manufacturer has offered a strong alliance to deliver the much-needed project to the community. The profit for miner has already dropped due to the sharp drop in demand for mining virtual currencies in the wake of a drop in prices. Therefore, energy costs are key to sustain the business.
