Over the last few weeks, Elon Musk said Tesla could start to accept Bitcoin as payment again, if at least half of it can be mined using clean energy.
“When there’s confirmation of reasonable (~50%) clean energy usage by miners with a positive future trend, Tesla will resume allowing Bitcoin transactions,” he tweeted.
Other than Musk, it’s also a concern for others, as well.
Helping, the Crypto Climate Accord (CCA) was created to help eliminate carbon emissions from the industry by 2030, as noted by Business Insider. “By 2040, it wants the crypto industry to reach ‘net zero’ emissions — or carbon neutral.
This means that greenhouse gases still going into the atmosphere will be balanced out with technology that removes those gases as well.” Some of the top miners that could benefit from such news include CleanSpark Inc. (NASADQ:CLSK), with its ESG-based mining philosophy, Marathon Digital Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA), Riot Blockchain Inc. (NASDAQ:RIOT), MicroStrategy Inc. (NASDAQ:MSTR), and Bit Digital Inc. (NASDAQ:BTBT).
