The video that was posted via Twitter contains an aerial view of geothermal energy plants near the volcanoes, cargo shipment and trucks, and then of course mining rigs.
Talks about this project have been going on for a long time since crypto-enthusiast President Bukele aims to harness the energy from volcanoes and use it for Bitcoin (BTC) mining. The President has mentioned this plan since June of 2021, by revealing mock-ups of the project to come.
The genesis of the idea was put forth to President Bukele in Twitter Spaces.
