Crypto Adoption or Rejection good
Star Trek legend William Shatner has become the latest celebrity to beam into the crypto space.
Shatner, known for playing Captain Kirk in the science fiction series, is representing Solar Alliance, an alternate energy developer which is planning to build a solar-powered bitcoin mining facility in Illinois, the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday.
The company – which is based in Canada – will be using an existing factory in the town of Murphysboro to host a solar panel array.
That being said, while Solar Alliance is building the infrastructure to support a mining facility, it does not actually intend to mine bitcoins.
Instead, the firm intends to lease the building to mining firms after the solar panels are completed.
