Farcana and Dravus join forces to line up sustainable mining power sources

FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

As a result of growing ecological awareness, the sector’s top companies have been working to achieve effective cryptocurrency mining while still being energy-efficient: e.g. using mining facilities fueled by renewable power and located in colder regions to lower heat-dissipation costs.

According to Digiconomist’s Bitcoin Energy Usage Index, it takes 1,449 kWh, or around 50 days of typical US home electricity, to conduct one Bitcoin transaction. At the same time, Bitcoin mining consumes roughly as much energy as Argentina. 

As a result of growing ecological awareness, the sector’s top companies have been working to achieve effective cryptocurrency mining while still being energy-efficient: e.g. using mining facilities fueled by renewable power and located in colder regions to lower heat-dissipation costs.

To support the initiative, Farcana — a Dubai-based Web3 project that merges AI and gaming to create an inclusive gaming experience and boost well-being — and Dravus Investment, a Central European private equity specializing in energy distribution and eco-mining, have signed a strategic investment agreement.

Farcana and Dravus: supporting sustainable mining 

Building on blockchain technologies, Farcana encourages the ongoing transition of cryptocurrency mining to renewable energy sources. The in-game economy and steady reward fund of Farcana are backed by the Bitcoin mining hash rate through a cutting-edge, US-patented Play-to-Hash (P2H) model, setting new standards for the GameFi. 

By transforming this idea into an eco-friendly one with the help of this forward-thinking cooperation, Farcana will be able to lessen the adverse effects of mining on the environment and the product economy. Dravus Investment supports this initiative by investing $1M in the company’s infrastructure.

‘Dravus Investment has a considerable interest in mining cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Farcana Gaming Metaverse is one of our blockchain ecosystem investments. The initiative uses Play-to-Hash (P2H) mechanisms, which are now cutting-edge and have a bright future,’ Dravus team comments.

“At Farcana, we are very grateful for With Dravus Investment’s confidence in our business innovations in Web3 gaming, fueled by eco-mining and renewable energy. With their help, we will have the opportunity to contribute in a small way to safeguarding the environment and our shared home, the planet Earth,” says Ilman Shazhaev, CEO and Founder of Farcana.
