Bitcoin mining company to build data center in Montana

Kevin O'Leary

Mr. Wonderful on the reality TV series “Shark Tank” business mogul Kevin O’Leary touted Montana as a business-friendly state. He compared Montana’s business environment to what he called the “Norway model,” meaning that the European country is friendly to business and has access to renewable energy.

Bitzero, which specializes in bitcoin mining, was touted as being a 100% green company. Akbar Shamji, the CEO of the company, said that the carbon displacement technology that makes the company carbon neutral was developed in Norway over the last few years.

He said that the company was choosing locations to build data centers that have surplus energy generation.

Bitzero announced on Wednesday that it would be opening similar data centers in North Dakota through a partnership with O’Leary, the company and the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation, according to a release from the state.
