Washington’s Douglas County is Looking to Build a Blockchain Innovation Campus

According to the aforementioned article, the county is already used to hosting a substantial crypto mining industry. Crypto miners have been attracted to various central Washington counties due to their access to cheap hydroelectricity-generated power; however, the mining boom has reportedly busted in 2018, after the market downturn.

The Douglas County Department of Commerce is set to contribute $50,000 in a grant to the creation of the blockchain innovation campus.

The previously rich cryptocurrency-related local activity has left the county with abundant high-speed computing and crypto expertise, which, coupled with the local cheap power access, constitutes an advantage for developing such technology, according to The Seattle Times.
