Estimates have it that presently some 5,500 megawatts of unused energy in Paraguay is going to waste, and specialists have actually declared this might be utilized to “indicate the start of a period of bitcoin mining in the country.”
However, the media outlets kept in mind that Paraguay “is not the only nation in the area with crypto mining capacity.”
In Argentina, Bitfarms, the Nasdaq-listed Bitcoin miner, started deal with a “mega” crypto farm, with 55,000 mining rigs currently being set up.
