The Bitcoin Green Bitcoin Fund has established a minimum investment benchmark of $5 million for potential investors. Through this fund, Bitdeer has set out to launch mining projects, estimated to have a total hash rate of 20EH/s, in Bhutan.

In recent months, Bitdeer has been ramping up its initiatives and operations in Bhutan, capitalizing on the country’s zero-emissions energy sources and its welcoming attitude towards blockchain technology.

Back in May, the company publicized a collaboration with Bhutan’s state-owned investment corporation, Druk Holding and Investments (DHI), to raise up to $500 million from the global community.

Bhutan, a country celebrated for its breathtaking landscapes, has always been among the crypto-friendly nations on the Asian continent. This latest endeavor marks another milestone in the country’s journey towards expanding Bitcoin mining operations.

In April, a Forbes report disclosed that Bhutan has been discreetly mining Bitcoin since the coin’s price was $5,000. The royal government of Bhutan has been keen on utilizing the country’s hydroelectric plants to power its Bitcoin mine, the report added.

It appears that Bhutan’s government has been exploring partnerships with other mining companies apart from Bitdeer. As per Forbes, senior government officials, and entities, including DHI, have already held advanced discussions with various mining pools about operating a hydro-powered Bitcoin mine.
