Mining company Northern Bitcoin has come to an agreement with its U.S. rival, Whinstone, in building the world’s largest mining farm.
On November 18, Northern Bitcoin stated in a press release that Whistone is already establishing the facility. Moreover, it will have the capacity of one gigawatt on an area of over 100 acres in Texas. Also, according to the mining company, the mining farm on the making will be the largest data center in North America.
In Q1 2020, they expect to finish the first phase of the construction, which will have a capacity of 300 megawatts. They plan to complete this in Q4 2020.
Aside from that, Northern Bitcoin is a stock-traded mining company founded last year. Additionally, it specializes in sustainable Bitcoin mining. Also, it runs a mining farm on renewable energy in Norway.
It is no doubt that the idea of putting the world’s largest mining facility in the U.S. is interesting. And this is especially striking given that China has so far been at the forefront of the cryptocurrency mining industry. Also, it hosts a lot of the leading mining companies, like Bitmain.
Recently, in an analysis, lower costs, in addition to access to inexpensive hardware, make China a competitive target for cryptocurrency mining operations, despite the country’s legal environment.
Gamers to Collect Bitcoin
Donnerlab will now offer players to hunt for Bitcoin and pick-up Satoshi cubes. The firm announced on November 19 the launch of its project called Bitcoin Bounty Hunt. It will be a fully lightning-native multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) game.
Last October, Bitcoin-enabled games startup Satoshis Games announced the improvement of a Fortnite-like game built-in Lightning Network microtransactions, named Lightnite. This is where interactions among players trigger a monetary reward or penalty for the user. They stated, “Players earn Bitcoin by shooting other players and lose Bitcoin when they get shot.”
