* German Bitcoin mining farm Northern Bitcoin has acquired Whinstone US in order to build what will be the world's largest mining firm. The first phase of construction, which will finish in Q1 2020, will already have a capacity of 300 megawatts. Further construction to be completed in Q4 2020 will further raise capacity to 1 gigawatt on an area of over 100 acres in Texas. This will dwarf competitor Bitmain's mining facility, which will expand from 25 MW to 50 MW to only 300 MW in its largest phase.
The $150 million bitcoin mine could become the world's largest – surpassing Bitmain's, whose own mega mining operation is in the same Texas town.

The digital dollar may also pose concerns regarding security and IT, i.e: record of transactions.
The Fed concluded that they have not yet identified potential material benefits of a central bank digital currency relative to the existing monetary policies/tools.
