Elon Musk said he spoke with “North American Bitcoin miners” about the question of sustainability in crypto

Elon Musk gave another vague tweet about Bitcoin today, sending the price up to around $2,000. In a new tweet, Elon Musk said he spoke with “North American Bitcoin miners” about the question of sustainability in crypto.

Elon Musk has revealed that he spoke with North American Bitcoin miners

They are “committed” to green energy and encourage miners around the globe to follow suit, according to Musk:

As with all of Musk’s tweets, it had an immediate and significant impact on the crypto market, the Bitcoin price jumped from around $38,000 to over $40,000.

Michael Saylor—the CEO of the software company MicroStrategy and a devout Bitcoin advocate—said he led a meeting yesterday with Musk and Bitcoin mining companies, such as Argo and Hut 8. He also said these miners have agreed to form the Bitcoin Mining Council to promote energy usage transparency & accelerate sustainability initiatives worldwide, though it’s yet unclear what that means exactly.

Peter Wall, the CEO of Argo, confirmed that Argo has joined the newly formed Bitcoin Mining Council.

Tesla put $1.5 billion in Bitcoin on its balance sheet back in February and said it would start accepting BTC as payment for its cars. Earlier this month, Musk announced Tesla would no longer accept Bitcoin due to environmental concerns.

Whether Saylor’s Bitcoin Mining Council can do anything about Bitcoin’s climate impact remains to be seen. But it’s evidently already having an impact on Musk—and the Bitcoin market as a result.
