A solar powered crypto mining company that is acquired by Solar Alliance Energy will use solar energy to mine. William Shatner (Captain Kirk from Star Trek) is the spokesperson for the venture.
A company, Solar Alliance Energy, acquired a new warehouse in Murphysboro to start operations of crypto mining. They will use solar energy to power up the mining warehouse and the mining rigs. William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in the previous installments of Star Trek, is part of the campaign for the solar energy based crypto mining. Solar Alliance previously signed a memorandum with a solar panel manufacturer to produce solar powered crypto mining machines and setups.
William Shatner played Captain Kirk in Star Trek series. Shatner is famous for his part back in the 90s. He was the advocate for the solar energy based crypto and he said in a tweet that he is impressed by how the company is adopting solar power for such a purpose. He also stated he is proud to be a part of the group that is taking part in digital currency revolution. “The combination of solar and cryptocurrency mining facilities represents meaningful change,” Shatner stated.
How it will work?
The Solar Alliance Company is aiming to earn revenue through leasing space to mining tenants. After that, they are planning to produce their own solar powered mining rigs and equipment to sell. Moreover, the company gets support from the Murphysboro mayor. The mayor said it was a wonderful opportunity for the city to have such a facility.
Cryptocurrencies use up too much energy, and companies try to reduce the need for power. Especially, the mining process needs a lot of electricity. We will see how the solar energy will affect the mining efficiency and power consumption. It will definitely be an improvement for the environment. Also, faces like William Shatner are the driving force of the industry for publicity.
