El Salvador uses volcanos to mine Bitcoin
El Salvador has mined its first Bitcoin using clean energy from a volcano, the country's president has announced on a tweet. El Salvador sits on the edge of the Pacific “Ring of Fire” and has 20 potentially active volcanoes, which generate 21.7% of the country’s energy. El Salvador made Bitcoin legal tender in September and it has said it plans to build a 100% clean Bitcoin-mining plant.
