Bitcoin’s carbon footprint is a hot topic and one of the few issues that Elon Musk and Elizabeth Warren can agree on, largely because it is a valid environmental concern. Cully Cavness, president and co-founder of Crusoe Energy, and crypto hedge fund guru Chase Lochmiller, CEO and co-founder of Crusoe Energy, have put their minds together to solve Bitcoin’s Achilles’ heel. Their solution: power Bitcoin mining rigs using excess natural gas. The logistics are tricky, but these two are uniquely suited for the job. Cavness comes from a career in energy and sustainability, and Lochmiller is one of the founding members of Olaf Carlson-Wee’s Polychain Capital. Tune in for the fascinating and revolutionary tale of how these two are using Bitcoin to improve the world. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on January 4, 2022.
