These days mining crypto currencies is still profitable. To maintain the profitability, many miners mine crypto in countries with low energy tariffs and mostly using fossil fuels like coal and gas because they mine in countries like China and Russia where the percentage of renewable energy is still low. Like many data-centers all around the world, governments should push these miners to use green energy. This could drive crypto businesses to move operations to countries with a high percentage of green energy, creating jobs. It even can have a positive effect on commercial real-estate.
