Satoshi’s Second Gift: The Renewable Energy Bounty Program

Flipping Proof-of-Work’s Energy Consumption Narrative

CoAuthored by Matt McKibbin of Decentranet and Timothy Lewis of Atlas Cloud Enterprises and DNA Fund

Ask a layperson about their feelings on bitcoin energy usage, and you’re likely to get one of two strongly-held opinions:

On one end, folks who may think of themselves as optimists consider mining energy costs as minimal as America’s Christmas tree light usage.

On the other, self-styled realists insist bitcoin mining is using more energy than the entirety of Ireland, and left to grow rampantly, will be responsible for environmental apocalypse.

However, the energy that powers mining isn’t going to ruin the planet. In fact, more mining could save it.

By incentivizing the mass usage of cheap, clean power, mining can stimulate the growth of a more sustainable and efficient energy-production infrastructure.

Satoshi Nakomoto’s first gift to society was disintermediating centralized banks and financial institutions.

Their second gift is incentivizing clean, sustainable energy production — which will help our planet stick around for a little bit longer.

An Upswing In Sustainability

Bitcoin mining, like all other economic activities, is subject to fundamental economic laws of supply and demand. As the price of energy goes down, the cost of production of bitcoin through mining increases, increasing supply. As interest in cryptocurrencies rises, entrants both old and new placing new demand in bitcoin increases its price. It stands to reason a decrease in production costs will correlate directly to increased usage.

Consider Moore’s law, named after Gordon Moore, co-founder of Fairchild Semiconductor and Intel, which predicted innovations in computing that ultimately spurred the consumer electronics revolution as far back as 1965. Since then, the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit continues to double approximately every two years. The increased speed of these digital electronics resulted in technological and social change, productivity, and economic growth.

In addition, Swanson’s law observes that the price of solar photovoltaic modules — AKA solar panels — tends to drop by 20 percent when demand doubles. At present rates, costs halve about every 10 years.

And now, according to a new report from Bloomberg, “the cost of installing solar panels at big solar farms and on rooftops will drop 60% to an estimated average of around four cents per kilowatt hour by 2040.”

As a result, it’s predicted that 15% of the world’s electricity will come from solar panels by that same year.

A Bounty on Clean Energy

Overall, wind and solar are now the cheapest forms of energy on the planet. Geothermal and hydroelectric are also becoming more popular — with the added bonus that users don’t need to deal with storage issues.

So how do these changes in our energy sector connect to cryptocurrency? Through mining: green energy is simply more cost effective. Cost effective equals lower energy production costs. And lower costs means more money.

For miners, that’s a big deal.

Electricity can be 30–70% of their total costs of operation. Therefore, it stands to reason that they would want to use the cheapest energy available on their quest for the $200,000 bitcoin bounty.

We feel that the bitcoin revolution could ignite a surge of innovation in the clean energy field. But don’t take our word for it. As Bill Tai says in a Medium post:

“A virtuous cycle is beginning. The more electricity that is needed at scale, the clearer it is — that green is the best economic alternative. As such, the more likely it is that incremental energy production infrastructure that will be built going forward MUST be green to be competitive, and that these new sources of electricity will provide cheaper energy for all consumers across all uses.”

In fact, this shift is already happening.

According to Bitcoin Magazine, one miner moved their entire GPU farm across the U.S. because the hydroelectric power in the Pacific Northwest was cheaper. On the other side of the world, miners take advantage of the plentiful geothermal and hydraulic power of Iceland. Sure, these might not be the most exciting places to live — but the savings make up for that.

Mining Moving Forward

One issue with green energy is that it’s harder for storage batteries to hold. Extra energy typically dissipates or isn’t stored properly. Yet with bitcoin, that excess can go towards mining and building a larger energy infrastructure.

The timing is perfect, because the energy grid in the United States is pretty unstable at the moment. Large sections are taken down at once, and the entire system is hackable. Increased mining means that the grid will start to become less centralized — and therefore more stable.

In fact, decentralized energy communities already exist. In some areas, trash from overflowing landfills is being converted into power. That waste energy is supporting the community, and the excess goes into maintaining the worldwide financial ledger.

Essentially, those people are burning garbage to create money. Magic.

Well, what if a town is setting up solar panels? Do they start their own mining facility next door? Believe it or not, there’s an easy starting point. P2P energy production for solar is made possible with companies like Powerledger, which empowers consumers to trade electricity with each other.

The Sun Exchange is another option in Africa, which gives free energy installations for solar panels. Users can channel the excess energy into mining.

As these industries grow closer, more options will pop up — creating ample opportunity for individual entrepreneurs.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

If the upward swing in green energy usage continues, we predict that coal and fossil fuels will become a thing of the past. Instead, global energy production infrastructure will be built for clean fuels. The reason isn’t just because it’s the right thing to do. In reality, it’s because they’re more cost effective — which is exactly what makes this change sustainable, and creates a compelling incentive to make the sometimes painful switch.

Since money talks, we believe that there will be massive growth in efficient energy production. It’s simply economics.

Want a future where the norm is clean energy?

Hop on the bitcoin bandwagon.

DecentraNet’s Tiffany Madison in Forbes: Meet the Woman Advising The World’s Top Blockchain Companies

Forbes sat down with DecentraNet’s Tiffany Madison to discuss her experience as a female cofounder in the blockchain space, where we’re headed, and why it’s more important than ever to have more women and inclusion when dealing with a technology with the potential to massively impact people’s lives — for the better.

“How can we get more women into blockchain?

1) Create new opportunities: As the blockchain industry is transitioning from its newborn phase into infancy, new opportunities are emerging for women. Until recently, most of the positions in this space targeted technologists, a niche underrepresented with women. While we still have work to do, more women are entering STEM and technology-related fields than ever. As the industry continues to grow, positions where women often shine become more in demand, especially operations, marketing, public relations, content development, and media. Further, over the next decade, many industries where women dominate will be disrupted by blockchain, creating a catalyst for their interest.

2) Offer a platform: I also think industry events are a very public way of demonstrating support for inclusion and diversity. Event organizers and leaders can play a very important role by continuing to foster an inclusive culture welcoming to all. At d10e, we specifically sought female moderators to mediate all-male panels. Our emcee, still to this day, is the very talented young woman, Naomi Brockwell, also known as Bitcoin Girl. The result was that more women leaders felt empowered by their roles as early adopters and thought leaders, and more inclined to speak at future events. When DecentraNet hosts events, we promote inclusion by seeking out as many talented and diverse presenters as possible.

3) Focus on cryptocurrency adoption first: In my experience, interest in cryptocurrency almost always leads to interest in the power of blockchain technologies. Estimates currently place that 5 to 7 percent of all cryptocurrency users are women, making the industry a highly male-dominated one.I think this will change in the next 5-10 years. As cryptocurrency investment platforms, including wallets and exchanges, continue to become less cumbersome and more user-friendly, many women that do not consider themselves technical, but financially savvy, are apt to become interested.”

DecentraNet featured as one of 10 Crypto Companies that Will Actually Improve Society

By David Jackson

When cryptocurrency gets brought up in the news, there are typically only two aspects of the crypto market being taken into consideration:

  • Wow, would you look at this neat feature cryptocurrencies have! Isn’t that interesting?
  • Wait, cryptocurrencies can be used to make the illegal purchasing process easier? This is a disaster.

You get the idea. People in the mainstream tend to have a pretty basic understanding of how cryptocurrency works, and that’s to be expected. We shouldn’t be surprised that cryptocurrency ends up getting presented this way.

But it does bring up an interesting question: what can be accomplished with cryptocurrencies?

Don’t get me wrong, those of us within the blockchain community are fully aware of the laundry list of perks that come with a fully integrated crypto market.

I’m not just talking about “decentralization” or “fraud protection” in a vague sense. I want to explore how we can actually improve society in a meaningful way with cryptocurrencies.

And that’s why today, I’m going to take a look at 10 crypto companies that are gearing up to change the culture of traditional markets and improve society in the process.

Nano Vision

Nano Vision was formed as the solution to a problem that is as problematic as it is antiquated. The reality of research as we know it is that it’s trapped in a model that’s fundamentally broken.

While trying to drive scientific advancement, trillions of dollars end up being spent all around the world, with limited success.

To make matters worse, critical data ends up being siloed in individual institutions and governments globally. Nano Vision aims to change that by aggregating existing and real-time data from the world’s leading institutions. By using a global, decentralized blockchain economy, they can empower citizens and scientists to address the world’s greatest human health challenges.


At its core, DecentraNet operates as a full-service blockchain advisory and consultancy, serving entrepreneurs with a full suite of done-for-you services, deep industry partnerships, access to capital, and community events.

DecentraNet hopes to use blockchain technology to enable newer, more efficient solutions to otherwise crippling global challenges. But what does that really mean? Well, they’re aiming to not only empower a single individual, but to create a culture that is capable of fully integrating the crypto markets into our current financial markets.


The easiest way to think of Loci is that it’s a platform designed to change the way the Intellectual Property (IP) industry functions. The unfortunate reality of the IP world is that claiming an idea as IP can be a terribly lengthy and expensive venture, with very little in the realm of payoff.

Loci aims to fix this problem by simplifying both the patent search process and utilizing unique visualizations to help further understand the vast landscape of ideas. By the time Loci is done with the IP industry, inventors will have a cheaper, faster method for claiming IP.


As an investor, there’s a pretty common issue that you’ll run into: balancing your liquid assets and your illiquid assets. Traditionally, these markets are kept siloed, but Securrency is hoping to change that.

Securrency aims to be your go-to financial tool to make asset transfers easier than ever before, with access to a part bond, part currency, and part exchange traded fund share. This means that you’ll be able to instantly liquefy any of your assets, without having to pay for costly third-party services.

The BuildCoin Foundation

The BuildCoin Foundation was founded on a single principle: the idea that every human being deserves access to both affordable and reliable infrastructure to reach their highest potential in order to live their best life.

So, how does the BuildCoin Foundation help? By leading the charge when it comes to building a new foundation for global economic and human social advancement. The BuildCoin Foundation understands that investments in the development of quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure drive economic development. That’s why they created BuildCoin, a cryptocurrency that’s designed to help offer transparency, immutability, process integrity and disintermediation, all at lower costs and with faster transactions.


While it may not seem glamorous to most people, the trucking industry is truly the backbone of American commerce. With 80% of all cargo transported overland by trucks, and more than $700B spent on overland logistics in the U.S in 2016, the market is undeniable. Unfortunately, it’s also very inefficient.

Fr8 exists as a set of decentralized applications designed to connect the freight industry’s fractured value chain by transparently connecting key stakeholders, removing high-cost arbitrage, increasing efficiencies, and re-aligning incentives. Just as important, by using blockchain technology, they’re able to mitigate the industry’s considerable environmental impact.


At its core, Constellation is a horizontally scalable distributed operating system with smart contracts as microservices. Constellation offers a cryptocurrency with transactions faster than both Bitcoin and Ethereum by a factor of 1000. And with no transaction fees, more and more people will be able to take advantage of this cryptocurrency.

It’s completely decentralized, mobile compatible and you can easily integrate Constellation’s smart contracts as microservices into existing applications.


The Dispatch platform is actually relatively simple. With blockchain going mainstream, Dispatch Labs is building the architecture to get it there. Dispatch aims to create a platform that will disrupt a host of traditional industries. By enabling the development of secure, decentralized peer-to-peer applications.

Solid Opinion

The most interesting thing about SolidOpinion is their approach to being an engagement company. Their goal is to help users track, power, drive, and reward engagement. And yet their focus is on creating targeted, un-intrusive ads that drive engagement. And at the core of all this is a digital currency that offers transparency and efficiency to its users.


NuBits might be one of the few digital currencies that’s stable enough and versatile enough for the mainstream financial markets. NuBits uses a 1-to-1 ratio with the US dollar, meaning that there’s no need to perform complex math at the point of sale. Plus with no vendors fees or customer chargebacks, it’s a great financial tool for vendors and merchants.

Which crypto company do you think is leading the charge when it comes to improving society? Comment below.
