On Thursday, June 11, MicroStrategy chief Michael Saylor officially kickstarted the newly formed Bitcoin Mining Council thereby inviting industry players. The Bitcoin Mining Council basically aims to shift the dynamics of the crypto mining industry by moving towards energy-efficient mining solutions.

Inviting different industry players, Saylor said that the Bitcoin Mining Council will serve as a “voluntary” and “open forum” for Bitcoin miners.

The debut for Bitcoin Mining Council comes just within a month of forming the panel. As said, the council is basically a voluntary forum committed to the network along with its core principles. The Council has some of the top North American crypto miners as its founding members.

The names include some giants and public listed companies like Argo Blockchain, Core Scientific, Hive, Hut8, riot Blockchain, and others. However, the Council page says that any Bitcoin miner can join with no minimum limit on the size of the operation.

Also, the Bitcoin Mining Council aims to operate with complete transparency with all members voluntarily sharing their energy mix and hashrate size for educational and research purposes.

The Rise Awareness of Clean Energy Use In Bitcoin Mining

As the crypto industry matures, market participants are increasingly getting cautious about the massive use of electric power required in Bitcoin mining operations. Last month, for this very reason, Tesla suspended Bitcoin payments at its company for this very reason.

MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor convened a meeting of some top North American miners and Tesla boss Elon Musk also joined the same. As a result, all miners decided to form a council to standardize the energy reporting. Musk said that the meeting was fruitful, however, he has no formal role so far in this council.

Also, governments worldwide are getting increasingly cautious of energy usage with crypto mining activities. China, one of the most lucrative destinations for Bitcoin miners has decided to completely ban Bitcoin and crypto mining activities in the country. As a result, miners are fleeing to other favorable destinations like North America.

The Bitcoin Mining Council will not only attract players worldwide but aims to steer the movement towards building sustainable energy solutions for mining purposes. El Salvador which recently legalized Bitcoin as an official tender is now exploring clean Bitcoin mining operations using the geothermal energy from volcanos.
