Bitcoin’s Greenness Passes the 50% Threshold – Will the Tesla Permit BTC Payments Now?


Jiang Zhuoer, CEO of mining pool BTC.TOP shared on Twitter the fact that Bitcoin miners’ clean energy usage exceeds 50 percent already. The CEO claims that all mining facilities located in the Xinjiang, Qinghai, and Inner Mongolia areas have been closed because of the Chinese government’s crackdown on the crypto field. According to the renowned miner’s tweet, only hydro-powered mining farms in Sichuan have, so far, managed to keep their activities going.

As reported  by many newsletters, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has recently shared on Twitter that the leading e-car company would resume accepting BTC payments only if miners were to reach a 50 percent threshold in clean energy. However, it’s still unclear what data source Tesla will use to verify Bitcoin’s greenness and when – and whether – the company will start accepting the crypto coin as a viable form of payment again.
