Senator Cynthia Lummis sees Bitcoin mining as a boon to the American energy industry.
Bitcoin mining will "play a critical role" in making America's energy sector independent, according to US House of Representatives member Pete Sessions (R-TX).
One reason is that Bitcoin mining is portable, the operation can bypass many of the obstacles that limit renewable energy output.
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas had stated that Bitcoin mining can help to repair the state's electricity grid's crumbling infrastructure.
President Joe Biden decried the situation with energy price variations owing to external influences earlier this month he said,
“This crisis is a stark reminder. To protect our economy over the long term, we need to become energy independent. It should motivate us to accelerate the transition to clean energy”
