Latest News A nuclear-powered Bitcoin mine is launched in Pennsylvania By AtoZcrypto Posted on January 31, 2023 1 min read 0 7 3,164 Throughout the years, Bitcoin mining has been known for its contribution to environmental pollution. But now, it is looking for alternative mining methods. That is why a nuclear-powered Bitcoin mine, the first of its kind, is launched in the United States. The focus is to mine cryptocurrencies using cleaner energy than the traditional method. We all know that computers consume a lot of energy, and Blockchains are no exception. To improve the situation, Cumulus Data has taken the first step, by wrapping its 475- megawatt, zero-carbon Susquehanna data center campus in Pennsylvania. It would power TeraWulf, a Bitcoin mining company. The data centers will be directly connected to the facility, without worrying about electric transmission. Cryptocurrency mining is a polluting issue, Ethereum has taken steps to improve its carbon footprint, but Bitcoin is not doing much.
