“Bitcoin mining looks for the lowest cost power… that just happens to be renewable.” – Kent Halliburton

My guest today is Kent Halliburton. Kent is the CEO & Co-founder of Sazmining, a hosted Bitcoin mining provider utilizing 100% renewable energy sources. In this episode we discuss Bitcoin mining’s environmental impact, incentives driving renewable energy use, deflationary effects on consumerism, and inevitable adoption.
