Bitcoin Mining – Tapping the City’s Clean Nuclear Energy

Miami’s mayor announced that he is currently talking with Florida Power & Light Company for the division, energy distribution, and energy price. “We hear how important this is…miners want to get to a certain kilowatt price per hour. And so we’re working with them on that,” said the Miami Mayor.
The mayor is also considering a mix of other incentives considering other enterprise zones for crypto mining. This zone has infrastructure incentives, tax concessions, and scaled-back regulations explicitly.
But Maimi is not alone in its attempt to become a hub for crypto mining operations. The U.S. State of Texas is also becoming an attractive destination for Bitcoin miners due to the wind and solar energy surplus.
Speaking to CNBC, Brandon Arvanaghi, previously a security engineer at crypto exchange Gemini announced:
“You are going to see a spectacular shift over the coming months. We have governors like Greg Abbott in Texas who are encouraging mining. It is going to become a substantial industry in the United States, which is going to be incredible.”
With Chinese miners unplugging their mining rigs, there’s a notable drop in the Bitcoin hashrate over the last month.
