One of the biggest criticism against cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum is the massive amount of energy consumption required. The crypto mining operations alone uses moe energy than Iceland, Jordan and Syria combined. Recently, in Venezuela, authorities uncovered a warehouse full of 10,000 mining computers, which was drawing enough energy to power a whole town.
Environmental awareness is pushing some companies and individuals to mine cryptocurrencies using renewable energy. Crypto-miners are driven to use clean energy, lowering cost, helping the planet and even generate profits in the process.

They act as physical Bitcoin wallets while at the same time being tied to a NastyFans seat. They have engraved keys in them, which is a sequential vanity address unique to each coin style. There is also a coin analyzer available which gives an array of information about Minted Seats and their value.
How To Be Part Of The Pool?
To be part of the pool, miners must buy a seat in NastyFans. Buying a seat is like buying a percentage of NastyMining. All 30,000 seats are generally occupied but you can buy and sell these seats on NastyFans own auction site. Members earn profits from the mining pool proceeds as well as a percentage of profits from other sales like bitcoins made from precious metals.
OgNasty is looking to expand their solar and wind power production and is always in search of new ways to reduce energy consumption and costs. He hopes to get a bicycle-powered generator to keep himself busy and his body fit. He eventually wants to install a cooling tower and immersion tank for the equipment.
