Fort Worth is positioning itself to be the capital of crypto mining. Bitcoin mining machines donated by the Texas Blockchain Council began running 24/7 today, following a city council vote that authorized the six-month pilot program.
Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker plugged in the machines herself live on Twitter this afternoon at 2:35 p.m. “These small but powerful machines mark Fort Worth’s larger commitment to becoming a leading hub for technology and innovation," she said.
