He argues that eliminating the equivalent of one ton in methane emissions is more effective than avoiding the same amount of carbon dioxide. And he plans to convert methane into carbon dioxide, and utilize that to power bitcoin mining.

The analyst highlighted his views via a lengthy Twitter thread, that you do that by discovering leaking methane and cleanly burning it to generate electricity. 


BREAKING: Bitcoin mining can slash methane emissions by 2030.

Bitcoin mining can reduce our global emissions by up to 8% by 2030, simply by converting the world’s wasted and dangerous methane emissions into 80x less harmful emissions.

The miners of the crowned crypto-asset have already initiated an experiment with the stranded gas, to power their mining rigs. Apparently, this is gas that would go to waste or be burnt. The analyst highlights that miners could add to this energy produced from landfills.
