El Salvador has launched its first Bitcoin mining pool, called Lava Pool, with the aim of decentralizing mining and utilizing renewable energy. The pool will not only allocate some energy for Bitcoin mining but also provide affordable electricity to local communities. The mining pool is a collaborative effort by individual miners to increase their chances of receiving Bitcoin rewards. Volcano Energy is leading the development of Bitcoin mining facilities in Santa Ana, using wind and solar resources to produce 241 megawatts of renewable energy. This move will further boost renewable energy adoption in El Salvador.
