Bitcoin Mining Hub

NAPE partnered with the Texas Blockchain Council to debut the new Bitcoin Mining Hub at the 2023 NAPE Summit. This is an exciting evolution and next step in the vision for NAPE Summit to be the premier venue for energy professionals covering oil and gas, renewables and now bitcoin mining as a natural and valuable partner to the broader energy industry.

The Bitcoin Mining Hub included education, exhibitors and company presentations showcasing technology and opportunities for investment. It provided the largest venue for energy professionals to establish partnerships and explore how to incorporate this powerful tool into an effective asset management strategy..
