North Vancouver To Be World’s First City Heated By Bitcoin


As the price of bitcoin rises, bitcoin’s hashrate is also rising. Mining computers around the world are humming away and at the same time are producing amounts of waste in the form of excess heat that is unprecedented.

Enterprising miners like Burnaby-based MintGreen, a Canadian cleantech bitcoin miner, is already leading the waste reuse space with their heat sales to a local brewery and a sea salt distillery.


Other miners are using excess heat to power greenhouse operations (growing flowers and vegetables), home heating, and jacuzzis.
