This video made it’s ‘viral’ rounds where an unremarkable-looking cluster of sheds on the Nordic nation’s western outskirts may just hold the key. So come along with us today as we follow the money and peek inside Iceland’s wild bitcoin super mine.
The first proper ‘real world’ bitcoin transaction occurred about a decade ago, when Laszlo Hanyecz famously paid 10,000 bitcoins for two hot and juicy Papa John’s pizzas.
