Solar-powered bitcoin thanks to eco-mining: this is the new frontier under the banner of environmental sustainability, in order to keep the costs of the power consumption required by the IT process called mining, the basis of the creation of new cryptocurrencies, often accused of being “energy-consuming”. The eco-sustainable challenge starts from Moldavia, one of the most advanced countries in Europe in ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and that has long been at the forefront of innovative projects in the field of alternative energy sources.
