Our Proof-of-Work 

We believe that Bitcoin and Bitcoin mining have the potential to positively impact our environment, our grid, our economy, and society as a whole. 

We work with lawmakers and regulators as well as the general public to ensure that Bitcoin is adopted so all Americans have the opportunity to benefit from this technology. 

We have been building relationships...

...passing good policy into law

We passed our 'Right to Mine' Bitcoin bill into law in the state of Arkansas and Montana. Both were signed into law in 2023.

Both law protects miners from specific types of discrimination and also ensures local governments have the tools to keep out bad actors.

In Montana, we also banned any additonal taxes on Bitcoin when used as a form of payment.

...moving whole states towards Bitcoin

Satoshi Action Fund CEO was asked to present on the "Benefits of Bitcoin Mining" to the Governor's Crypto Commission in the state of New Hampshire. In their final report, Dennis Porter and Satoshi Action Fund were noticed as contributors to their findings. 

New Hampshire ultimately concluded that Bitcoin mining is helpful for them to achieve their energy goals and the commission directed the state to "conduct a public review of how bitcoin mining operations might be integrated into a statewide energy plan."

...fighting back against bad policy

Satoshi Action co-organized a rally with the Texas Blockchain Council and the Digital Chamber to fight back against SB1751 which was designed to restrict Bitcoin mining in the state of Texas.

Satoshi Action was deeply involved in the effort to kill the "anti-Bitcoin mining" bill in Texas (SB 1751). 

This bill would have significantly limited the ability for miners to participate in balancing the grid and stripped away incentives for miners to create rural jobs.

CAN CRYPTO BE A MEAN, GREAN, MINING MACHINE?

BITCOIN COULD HIT 10% ADOPTION RATE BY END OF THE DECADE

Dennis Porter, CEO of Satoshi Action Fund, whose mission is to educate policymakers on the merits of Bitcoin, takes it a step further. Bitcoin mining, he said in a recent tweet, will one day “be such an important part of the grid that if they try to ban it, we’ll all be without power.”
