GAMA (Green Africa Mining Alliance)
GAMA aims to bring renewable bitcoin mining to Africa through funding and education. They are doing this by utilizing unused natural energy sources like waterfalls and turning them into 100% clean and renewable energy to mine bitcoin.
Currently, Africa has many issues with generating electricity efficiently and lacks the infrastructure and funding to build. Once more bitcoin mining companies are in Africa, it will increase competition for other energy companies. The amount of electricity the bitcoin miners can produce at a low cost will bring down the cost of electricity in the area for the population.
If bitcoin mining is endorsed more in Africa, it will attract more bitcoin people. Good or bad people, it does not matter. The good bitcoin people want to help the African population, and the bad people will want to make money; they will end up assisting the population anyway. The good people know this, and they are using greed as an advertisement to get more people to go mine bitcoin in Africa. Knowing well that “come to Africa with your mining operations to help people” works much less.
Under the GAMA company umbrella, there are four main companies, but many others are applying and want to join.
The four companies right now are:
Sukuma Ventures (Kenya)
Trojan Mining (Nigeria)
