"#Bitcoin Mining will play a critical role in rebuilding energy independence in the USA"

@PeteSessions March 21, 2022 on Twitter

"As you know, a substantial portion of digital asset miners’ energy use is based on renewable sources. Additionally, many miners use other power sources, like natural gas, that may otherwise go unused. JAI Energy in Wyoming is an example of a company that is working with oil and gas producers to make a positive environmental impact through bitcoin mining. Bitcoin mining that utilizes flared gas is also reducing methane emissions in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, West Virginia, Ohio, and North Dakota. This private sector-led breakthrough is an important tool to a lower emission future. Finally, digital asset mining can have a substantial stabilizing effect on energy grids. It maintains robust baseload levels, yet it can be switched off quickly in times of peak demand. Most importantly, digital assets, and their related mining activities, are essential to the economic future of the United States. Other countries are rapidly moving to adopt digital assets and are attracting large amounts of capital and talent in the hopes of growing their own financial services sectors as digital assets and distributed ledger technology are widely adopted in the coming decade. The United States, as the global financial services leader, cannot rest on its laurels. We must focus on promoting responsible innovation so that our country can compete in a hypercompetitive, globalized economic system. Treasury Secretary Yellen articulated it best last week when she stated regulation should also be “tech neutral.” Favoring one technology over another, including proof-of-work versus proof-of-stake, can stifle innovation, erode future economic gains, and limit affiliated efficiencies. Digital assets are an essential component of promoting financial inclusion and have created new wealth building opportunities for Americans. American leadership in digital asset technologies is essential to ensuring the next generation of Americans can enjoy the prosperity and opportunity that our country has been blessed with. As you evaluate the potential environmental issues surrounding digital assets, the critical role that responsible innovation will play in our long-term economic future cannot be overlooked."
