Costa Ricans Preferring ‘Green’ crypto coins From Cloud Mining

Costa Ricans are embracing cryptocurrencies in a big way by allowing part of their salaries to be paid in virtual coins. In the process, start-ups are exploring ‘green’ alternatives such as renewable energy based crypto coins mining units.

The Central Americans are now all set to use their geographic location to mine cryptos using renewable energy, driving down costs of production of generated coins. This cloud mining approach is all set to open new business opportunities in the region besides ensuring greener coin generation methods and sustainable practices.

Mining hardships and ‘green solutions’

Mining for coins is much like coal mining in yesteryears as the modern version too requires long hours of toiling in furnaces produced from computing hardware using expensive, large-quantities of electricity.

Coin mining units consume large quantities of electricity and give-off lot of heat. Hence, the environments in which these mining units operate have to be constantly cooled, further increasing the quantity of electricity consumed in such units. For feasibility, most of the mining units operate from the cooler climes in Europe, along with the Nordic coasts and along North American colder regions of Canada.

In such circumstances, Costa Rica’s energy experts are innovatively adopting the natural geographic resources to provide energy for such mining units and perhaps in the long run data centers.

In Sweden, many of the blockchain technology based coin mining units are under conversion to data centers since the latter also use same hardware infrastructure. The fall in the prices of virtual coins was primary for coin mining centers to adopt data center functions.

Thus, Costa Rica has an immense business opportunity in exploiting the wind and solar resources to ensure cloud mining in the country uses 100{061760d9c36bcb9a73e64618185e598948b1074f596e9997513cec0fd049d84c} renewable energy.

When these units begin to spell success, renewable energy could become the core of crypto mining industry and thereby lower the carbon footprint associated with it.

Crypto coin Adoption in a big way

Besides, Costa Rica is welcoming the use of digital currency in a big way in its economy. The latest in such adoption has been that of workers in the country accepting a ‘section’ of their salary in cryptocurrencies. Though not perceived as a replacement of fiat-currency it is viewed as a better supplemental incentive, say digital economy experts Perlaza.  Though, the central bank of Costa Rica does not validate salary remittance in crypto coins, ‘portions’ of the salaries are paid out in alternative forms.

Perlaza notes that the National Banking System is clear that “crypto-currencies cannot be used as cash or liquid wages, but remember that here you can pay part of the salary with other goods that are not money or currency, provided that the legal minimum wage is recognized with money. ”

However, the presence of many units of bitcoin ATM machines is common in the country and more important most businesses are interested in accepting cryptocurrencies as a viable form of payment.

Hence, alternative energy consultants in the country, such as Daniel Yepez predict the first advantage for the country if it moves into the establishment of cloud forests and crypto mining infrastructure using renewable energy such as wind, solar and alternatives.
