Bitcoin and othercryptocurrencies are now a major business, with the global marketcapitalization of these coins exceeding $170 billion at their recent peak,according to Coin Market Cap.

Bitcoin alone has reached over $70 billion invalue, up from nothing when it was created just eight years ago.

A major issue with Bitcoin, which may eventuallyundermine success unless it is remedied, is the massive amount of powerrequired for “mining” of the coins.

If a large share of future mining operations usesolar power, geothermal power,hydro power, biomass or wind power, the massive power demands of mining andtheir consequent environmental impacts could be largely mitigated.

Genesis Mining
, a “cloud mining” operation, and some other mining operatorsuse geothermal power in Iceland, which is cheap and sustainable.
