According to the Bitcoin Mining Council, the global Bitcoin mining industry now uses 56% sustainable energy.
The global Bitcoin mining sector has reached a 56% sustainable power mix in Q2, according to estimates from a Bitcoin Mining Council (BMC) report.
“Bitcoin mining uses a negligible amount of energy, is rapidly becoming more efficient” a July 1 press release from the council stated.
The estimate was based on a three question survey of just 32% of the miners on the network. It found respondents “are currently utilizing electricity with a 67% sustainable power mix” which it used as the basis for its 56% estimate across the overall network.
