How Bitcoin and Bitmining Effected a Rural Washington Community

Interesting look at how Bitcoin and Bitmining has effected an Eastern Washington community. Long read but worth it for the insights about the history of Bitcoin and the power consumption required to mine Bitcoin.

It really has an old west gold mining camp air to the whole endeavor.

On a related note - Sierra Leonne recently became the first nation to run a blockchain powered election. I think that's actually a great application for Blockchain.

This is the future.
