CO2 emissions

Using stranded natural gas to generate electrical power for mining seems to be a good idea. And if that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, it’s even better. On that note, I can understand the reduction in methane emissions, but I struggle with the notion that CO2 emissions are reduced by methane combustion. Can you help educate us on this question?

Easy but Knowledgeable

Really enjoy listening to your team. I particularly enjoyed the one on OSL. Smart but a down to earth homeboy explaining the state of the (dis)union. Good stuff.

Best Crypto Podcast, even if you don’t mine!

This is my all time favorite crypto(blockchain) podcast. Through the lens of mining and this groups extended knowledge and experiences; countless golden nuggets and gems about how crypto works, markets, trading and the future of crypto are dropped for the listeners to find like easter eggs amongst tasteful jokes and commentary.

I highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in learning more about crypto or for advanced initiates of the wild west that is crypto/blockchain. As they say DYOR and verify don't trust your information sources.
