      • This partnership was established in order to promote decarbonization of the cryptocurrency industry.
      • A new working group has been established by ARBKF and DMG in conjunction with the CCA to outline the accord’s objectives as well as implement technologies that improve transparency in crypto mining with regard to solar and wind energy sources.
      • As far as ARBKF and DMG are concerned, the CCA’s objectives will contribute significantly to reducing overall emissions across the crypto industry.
      • Their goals and objectives reflected a commitment to environmental stewardship, demonstrating how they were aligned with the CCA.
      • It is estimated that Bitcoin miners use around 0.5% of the world’s electrical power.
      • It is crucial to reduce the carbon footprint of that growing energy consumption in this industry.
      • A private sector initiative, the Crypto Climate Accord, committed to powering the cryptocurrency industry with 100% renewable energy in April.

      A crypto climate accord helps instill real, tangible actions to address the environment’s impact of Bitcoin mining, according to Peter Wall, CEO of Argo Blockchain (ARBKF). The CEO of ARBKF reiterated ARGO’s readiness and determination to support the green initiatives of CCA Supporters and Signatories.
