Engineers near Amsterdam heat greenhouses with crypto farms.

Computers generate a lot of heat during mining. Florists decided not to waste it in vain. Now it heats the tulips greenhouse. This reduces farmers' dependence on gas, the price of which has skyrocketed since the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The servers in the greenhouse are powered by solar energy from the roof. This reduces the usually huge electricity costs for mining. “We think that with this way of heating our greenhouse, as well as earning on bitcoins, we have a win-win situation,” the flower growers said.

As part of the "Bitcoin Bloem" initiative, farmers own part of the mining processors housed in the greenhouse.

Currently, the crypto market is going through hard times, the bitcoin rate is a little over 16,000 thousand dollars, and a year ago it broke through the $68,000 mark. However, the greenhouse owners are not worried about the volatility of the new currency, they believe that the future belongs to the blockchain anyway.
