Sustainable bitcoin mining platform Sazmining has launched its first hydroelectric-powered bitcoin mining facility in Wisconsin, US, with the facility houses 350 mining rigs with 24/7 on-site security and solar-powered backups.

Sazmining said that this is a definitive proof-of-concept to show that, when done responsibly, bitcoin mining can not only greatly minimize any potential impact on the environment, but can also be fully carbon-neutral. 

"We are incredibly proud to be at the forefront of the green energy revolution in the bitcoin mining industry," said Will Szamosszegi, CEO of Sazmining. "Our new facility provides a carbon-neutral source of electricity for our mining operations and is a model for how mining can be managed sustainably as well as a testament to our commitment to make a positive impact on our environment and the economy."
