He is Captain Kirk, no more introductions needed if you are true Star Trek fan. William Shatner took us where no man has ever been before and set our phasers to stun. He charmed his way through the Galaxy and now he is charming two huge communities, Green and Mining, with his interest in solar powered cryptocurrency mining pools.
In the City of Murphysboro, Illinois, Solar Alliance company is establishing a 3MW solar array to power up tenants who will mine cryptocurrencies, according to the press release of Solar Alliance company.
Solar Alliance spokesperson and captain of our hearts, William Shatner shared his positive interest on this project
Green❇️! (You know how partial I am to green…women😘…money🤩!) W I have to say that @Solar_Alliance is my new fave comp. Why? Green Energy! It’s the future! I’m very impressed by how they are adapting solar power: https://t.co/E77jhDrXnZ #JointheAlliance #maketheshift— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) June 14, 2018
He also said “Blockchain technologies, and cryptocurrencies specifically, are at the cutting edge of a new distributed technology infrastructure. As an advocate for solar energy I was intrigued by the potential for it to power cryptocurrency mining operations. They are energy intensive and utilizing solar arrays to power them makes social and economic sense."
William Shatner sees cryptocurrencies as a tool in a fight with fraud, which is also capable of lowering identity as well as speeding up transactions and providing global access to capital.
Acquisition of the building and establishment of the project will create many new jobs and move the community to the future.
