Hey everyone, welcome to this week’s release of the Hashrate Happy Hour Podcast. We have another very special episode, today I am joined by both Evan Neel and Agee Springer of ERCOT.

We spend some time talking through who ERCOT is, the scale of the grid compared to the total capacity of bitcoin mining that they are aware of, and we wrap up with some of the potential challenges presented by this much flexible load on the grid system.

This was phenomenal perspective to hear directly from ERCOT about large flexible loads like bitcoin mining and the impacts it is having on the grid.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by our sponsor, the Texas Blockchain Council; a bitcoin-first nonprofit industry organization working to make Texas the jurisdiction of choice for bitcoin mining and blockchain innovation. They will be hosting North America’s premiere policy conference for the bitcoin and digital asset ecosystem on November 15-17 in Fort Worth Texas.
