The Technological District of Mar del Plata, Argentina, will host a massive crypto mining operation backed by a domestic startup accelerator. Lothal Mining is the company that will run the operations of the mining firm in the Argentinean city.

Firm Will Mine Ethereum During the First Stage

Per local newspaper La Capital, Grupo Neutrón invested almost 45 million pesos ($310,000), and there are plans to allocate additional funding of 200 million pesos ($2.21 million).

The infrastructure is ready, and in a first stance, the firm will mine ethereum (ETH). However, the company plans to expand to other cryptocurrencies.

The funding provided by the startup accelerator seeks to acquire hardware, refrigeration equipment, building the mining farm, hiring staff to perform electrical maintenance, among other activities.

Also, officials of the Ministry of Industry of the Nation were in the mining farm to check the project’s launching. Maximiliano Gonzáles Kunz, Grupo Neutrón’s CEO, pointed out that crypto mining is urgently needed in the context that fiat is “tending to lose ground progressively.â€

He added:

Growing Interest in the Crypto Mining Project, Claims CEO

On the decision of picking Mar del Plata as a hub for the mining rig, Gonzáles Kunz praised its strategic location for the technological ecosystem of the city.

Moreover, he believes the synergy created among the startups within the area is the proper environment to set up a project like this one.

Still, the startup accelerator claimed that there is “a lot of interest†in the crypto mining project. On the energy supply costs, Grupo Neutrón’s CEO commented:
