City of Fort Worth votes in favor of Bitcoin mining program


[email protected]:
Fort Worth, Texas has launched a pilot program to mine Bitcoin in partnership with the Texas Blockchain Council.

In a Tuesday city council meeting, Fort Worth approved a resolution to start running three Antminer S9 Bitcoin (BTC) miners donated by the Texas Blockchain Council in the city hall building. The pilot program was aimed at recognizing “the exponential growth of the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries” in addition to encouraging Fort Worth to become a tech leader.

"This is a very small opportunity for Fort Worth that has big possible returns on investment," said Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker at the council meeting. "We are going to become the first city in the world to mine Bitcoin here on site at city hall."
