A firm called Soluna has obtained a 37,000-acre wind-farm site in Morocco that it says has the potential to host up to 900 megawatts of power-generating capacity. A recent estimate suggests that the Bitcoin network uses at least 2.55 gigawatts. The company has teamed with the German wind-power developer ALTUS AG, which aims to build at least 36 megawatts of capacity by 2020 and complete the entire 900 megawatts in five years. The wind power will then supply cheap electricity to a high-density computing center for “mining” Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
