Unfortunately for our industry, the number of headlines and headline-making tweets about Bitcoin’s energy use and potential environmental impact has followed its rise in value in recent months.

Dan Tolhurst co-founded Gryphon Digital Mining in 2020 with the vision of creating the ESG-driven Bitcoin miner, and looks forward to the day that all Bitcoin mining is done using renewable energy sources. He has deep expertise as a strategy executive from his time at Netflix (NASDAQ:), The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:) and Booz & Co., in a career spanning five continents.

He spends his free time exploring London’s parks, travelling and cheering on his beloved Toronto Raptors.
