“We’re focused on aligning all of those computing resources with the future of the climate and the future of the planet.”
Chase Lochmiller, Crusoe Energy
Sometimes when I hear about something that seems strikingly unusual, I remark, “Wait – WHAT???” When I learned about Colorado-based Crusoe Energy it was one of those moments and I was curious to learn more. Chase Lochmiller, an MIT grad with a background in plasma physics and data science, and co-founder Cully Cavness with a background in oil and gas and geothermal energy, put their skills together to create a way to convert wasted and polluting natural gas “flaring” to power Bitcoin mining. Creative, inventive, and now well a well-funded and fast-growing company.
