Over the past 10 years, demand for cryptocurrencies has soared like very few other traded commodities. Today, the total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies exceeds $3 trillion, and millions of people want to own a piece of the cryptocurrency pie, but don’t understand or consider the environmental impacts that come with it. Numerous social and environmental activists have called for cryptocurrencies to be bad for the environment and have a high carbon footprint.

Why are cryptocurrencies bad for the environment? Because the primary impact of cryptocurrencies on the environment comes from the energy-intensive activity used for each transaction and mine new coins, also known as “mining”. Cryptocurrency mining is the process of creating or “winning” new cryptocurrencies by solving increasingly difficult mathematical puzzles, a process also known as Proof of Work (PoW).

Miners now use specialized computers called ASIC systems, which have higher and stronger hash rates, increasing not only the likelihood of being the first to solve a puzzle and earning newly mined coins, but also the energy required to power these computers. ASIC systems, while more energy efficient than regular computers, require more power because they typically run non-stop and also require energy to cool the hardware to prevent overheating, resulting in high power costs.

So how can miners reduce the environmental impact of cryptocurrency mining? There is a way to promote greener cryptocurrency mining: use high-throughput servers that consume less power. The low-power mining rig mainly represented by the high-throughput computin
