Pennsylvania State, Crypto Miner Sued for Polluting Environment

Pennsylvania state has failed to protect its residents from a crypto mining rig’s carbon dioxide emission, a court filing read. On Tuesday, a Pennsylvania environmental NGO – Save Carbon County – filed a lawsuit in a state court, accusing Stronghold Digital Mining. The company has been reportedly burning waste coal and tiers to produce energy for its crypto mining operations. Stronghold Digital Mining has been purportedly emitting six million tons of carbon dioxide per year. The environmental group stated that despite this, Pennsylvania has failed to ban crypto mining or advocate less energy-intense methods like “proof of stake” verification.
